For My Pain... (often abbreviated “FMP...” or just “FMP”) was a gothic metal supergroup from Oulu, Finland, featuring members from Embraze, Eternal Tears of Sorrow, Nightwish, Charon and Reflexion. The band released their successful debut album “Fallen” in 2003, but has since not released a new full-length album.

History[edit]

The birth of FMP (1999–2001)[edit]

The idea of For My Pain... started in 1999, when Altti Veteläinen (bass) and Petri Sankala (drums), both from Eternal Tears of Sorrow, wanted to start a new project. They asked two old friends, Tuomas Holopainen (keyboards, Nightwish) and Lauri Tuohimaa (guitars, Charon and Embraze), to join. Everyone was interested in the project, but as everyone was too busy, the project was postponed to the future.

Fallen (2001–2004)[edit]

A few years later the idea came up again, this time with a better timing since both Eternal Tears of Sorrow and Nightwish were having breaks. Two new members were asked to join, Olli-Pekka Törrö (guitars, Eternal Tears of Sorrow) and Juha Kylmänen (vocals, Reflexion), and the band started recording their debut album in 2001.

For My Pain...’s debut album “Fallen” was released in 2003, and followed in 2004 by a single with three new songs, “Killing Romance". Since then, the band has had a hiatus.
