A. Paasu - M. Huisko - J. Luostarinen - K. Laanto - S. Parviainen

Unhoped is formed at the end of the year 2007. The first alignment of the band consisted of K. Laanto and A. Paasu on guitars, M. Huisko on drums, S. Parviainen on bass and L. Viertola in vocal duties. The result was the first EP, "First Blood" at the beginning of 2010. The band decided to change their vocalist to J. Luostarinen during the recordings of their second record "Die Harder". On "Die Harder" Unhoped still plays fast thrash- orientated metal, but music itself tells more than a thousand words so check our achievements!
