Genre: Power Metal

Cardiant was formed early 2000′s and has been working with the current lineup since 2008. Their style has been described as power metal or heavy rock (someone even calling it AOR!). Cardiant recorded its debut album Midday Moon in 2005. At that time band didn’t have a permanent singer and was forced to have Janne Saksa as a session singer on the album. Unfortunately Underground Symphony had problems with the European release and the album was released only in Japan by Marquee / Avalon. In years 2007 and 2008 Cardiant had some line-up changes when Mikko, Marko and Erik joined the band. In 2009 Cardiant recorded its second, self-financed album Tomorrow’s Daylight. In 2010 Cardiant was selected to the semi-finals of Finnish national selection for Eurovision 2011 from amongst a group of 277 participants. Cardiant was voted to the finals along with nine other performers. The same year Cardiant also composed and recorded the theme and entrance song for Finnish ice-hockey team Tappara. The third album “Verge” was released in May 2013 by Marquee Avalon (Japan) and Inverse Records (Europe) peaking at #11 on the official Finnish charts. Recordings of a concept album ”Mirrors” started in May 2015 and the first video single ”Absolute power ” was released in September 2015. The album features several guest vocalists and will be released in November 24th 2017.
