We are Resolution 13 (Resolut13n) , a metal band from Finland. “R13” got started in 2010 as a project by Marko “Dallas” Lehtinen, Tony Buckman and Nico “Hardtone” Hartonen. The band are formed of experienced musicians from well known and respected bands/projects in Finland, i.e. Godsplague, The Black League, Grendel, Dimebag Beyond Forever, and Dope Tribe Devils. The crew recorded its first promo material in 2011, which contained 4 songs. Motivated by the initial reviews, we made a plan to record a full length album, which was eventually released 30th March 2015. The album is titled “Colossal”, because of it’s huge sound. Mostly thanks to a well known Finnish musician and sound engineer Mikko Herranen, who dedicated over a month to the carefully selected final 12 track mix. Reolution 13’s music and sound is hard, down tuned guitar riffs, ultra low bass frequencies, supersonic synths, a war battalion like drumming and vocals that range from hard growling, note screaming to clean, pure vocal work. What this band offers is a good hard smashing live act – an overdose of both hard-heavy and beautiful harmonies in industrial-like music.
