Re-Armed have been around since 2001, when five guys from Kerava, Finland decided to start playing similar music likened to so-called "Gothenburg metal". Their musical style has evolved along with many critically acclaimed demo tapes, gigs, lineup changes and a well recieved debut album "Worldwide Hypnotize”, which was released internationally on January 2012 via Massacre Records. After releasing their debut, the band supported names such as Chimaira, Suffocation, Origin, Cattle Decapitation and Cryptopsy for the tours in Europe. In this year Re-Armed also made their first big out door festival appearance at Bloodstock Open Air at Catton Hall in the UK.
The second album "Rottendam" was released on January 2014 via Eternal Sound Records, but major lineup changes froze the band almost for a year. Former guitarist/songwriter Tommi Helkalahti decided to leave the band - leaving vocalist Jouni Matilainen as the only current former member in the band.
What is going to happen in 2015-2016? The band is now ready to hit the stages with fresh blood in it's veins and writing mode is on for their third album. The new self-released single "Total Lack of Communication" is out now!
