    He's gone, he is dead
    His remains upon the hearse ahead
    As silently we wander though the mist
    He's free

    This is the end
    Your journey's over, night descends
    Below... Into the abyss
    Farewell, my friend, you will be missed

    Lower the flags
    A good man has passed
    He has reached the last of frontiers
    Lower the flags
    Down to half-mast
    For again the world has taken a turn for the worse

    He's done, he is dead
    Six feet of earth upon his head
    Now lay your wreaths
    Upon the one who lies beneath

    Although you're gone
    In memories you shall live on
    Asleep... In peace now rest
    The weight of the world is off your chest

    Lower the flags
    A good man has passed
    He has reached the last of frontiers
    Lower the flags
    Down to half-mast
    For again the world has taken a turn for the worse

    That morning light I'll always remember
    And these August nights: cold as December.

    I've been a Sentenced fan for some 15 years (since North From Here came out), I was really shocked to read the news. He was the main songwriter and wrote so many songs I've listened to ever so many times.

    He wasn't even 35 years old btw, he would have turned 35 on March 6th.. (according to wikipedia).

    I was definitely saddened by the news. He had a lot of talent and a huge personality from what I've heard. He also had one of the best DM growls I've heard yet. Always half hoped he'd take to another DM band and sing on another album like SotP. R.I.P Miika.

    "Come cast your shadow over me
    and I'll cast mine all over thee
    Take me away, into the shades
    where there is no light of day

    Come cast your shadow over me
    I'll give you immortality
    Let's walk away, into the shades
    where there is no light of day

    To Harm Our Way
    "

    R.I.P. Miika - you will be missed

    This is really depressing. Back when I initially discovered metal, Sentenced was one of my first and favorite bands. I have fond memories of The Cold White Light. RIP Miika -- you will be missed.

    Sad news indeed!

    To be honest I'm not much of a fan of Sentenced. Music-wise they were pretty good, but I never liked either of their vocalists. But I wish them all well during this tough time and I hope they're able to get through it.

    the rain comes falling down
    my life flows to the ground
    no longer feeling the pain
    these leaves now becoming my grave

    no longer feeling the flame
    no longer feeling the rain


    R.I.P Tenkula...

    At the risk of sounding insensitive I get the feeling that the song to quote here might be "Excuse me while I kill myself".
