This one came from my newest last.fm-ified friend, Midnite. Poets of the Fall play really pleasant alternative rock and are from Finland. Their single Late Goodbye appeared in Max Payne 2 as the title song. Check out Maybe Tomorrow is a Better Day from Carnival of Rust.[audio:http://sesam.hu/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Poets-of-the-Fall-Maybe-Tomorrow-is-a-Better-Day.mp3|titles=Maybe Tomorrow is a Better Day]
I was told to see them live one has to travel North, because they won’t do gigs elsewhere other than Scandinavia and Russia. Prepare your ushankas.
