I decided to make one topic for these two bands I play in. I'm involved in other projects (such as an Offspring cover band, of course) as well, but these two have material of their own.

Frozen Semen (http://myspace.com/frozensemenmetal) started out by friends hanging out and playing some metal while doing so. We finally recorded our first demo during Easter 2008, we could have recorded some songs earlier, but we thought the time was right at this point. Our music is mostly influenced by thrash, hardcore and heavy metal. The first song, "Far Beyond Mind Control" is online at Myspace (http://myspace.com/frozensemenmetal), we have two more to come. We have played a couple of gigs and there are more to come. And the name, the guys founded the band at a young age, but having grown up (at least a bit or so) we decided to keep the name because it describes the sheer joy of playing music together so well.

Caught In The Between (http://www.horsecult.info) was originally meant to be a single-album studio project, but it has evolved to playing live and writing more music. During 2005 the band's mastermind and bassist Vekku realized he had a nice bunch of songs that didn't fit in his other projects. Because the songs were good and original Vekku decided to make a full-length album. The main idea was to do everything ourselves, as well as we could with the gear we had. I joined the band in 2006 as a vocalist, I'll also play rhythm guitars live and perhaps on the next album. The album, Equilibrium was eventually released on 16.1.2008 with a distribution deal from Firebox (http://www.firebox.fi). Our music has been described original even in reviews, we define it "hybrid metal" that consists of thrash, blues, NWOBHM, you name it. "Slayer plays Mana Mana" might give you guys some picture. We have two songs up in Myspace (http://myspace.com/caughtinthebetween), go check 'em out! And to prove you're really cool and outgoing, visit Record Shop X (http://www.recordshopx.com/artist/caught_in_the_between/equilibrium/27763/).

Uh, are you sure that's what frozen semen actually means? I was kinda under the impression it meant something else...
