The band

Who do we think we are?

Musically, Everlore leans strongly towards the power metal genre, but adds some good old 80s NWOBHM and speed metal influences in the mix and dares to incorporate various other elements as well. Our music has strong roots from which we can grow wherever we desire.

Conceptually, Everlore started as a dream dreamt by Juuso Virnes. It grew to be a vast world of fantasy with endless stories, conflicts, adventures and people. It is also a vehicle to project one's thoughts, opinions, dreams and fears in a different form. It's an escape, a way to make the ordinary extraordinary.

The man behind the epic vocal harmonies and stage presence. Also one of the two people in the band with some actual common sense.

This hippie geek once had a dream of forming a kick-ass power metal band and has been pursuing that dream ever since. He is also the man behind the band name, logo, website design and overall musical direction.

Some say he can break the sound barrier with the speed of his fingers. When Ville joined the band he took the group to a whole new technical level with his challenging metal anthems and professionalism.
