myGRAIN was a melodic death metal band from Helsinki, Finland. They were signed to Spinefarm Records. They released four studio albums.


myGRAIN formed in 2004. The band roster was Tommy Tuovinen (vocals), Resistor (rhythm guitar), Jonas (bass), and Matthew (guitar) from their former band, New Science Band.

DJ Locomotive (drums) and Eve Kojo (Keyboards) joined the band prior to the record deal with Spinefarm Records.

The band produced two self-financed demos. The second, The Red Frame, resulted in a record deal with Spinefarm Records.

They released their debut album Orbit Dance in April 2006. The debut album consisted of eleven songs of modern metal – demonstrating both Nordic and American melodic death metal in its song construction. The band toured heavily in Finland to promote the release of Orbit Dance. During this time they continued to record new songs and in February 2008 they released their second album Signs of Existence. The album has developed myGRAIN’s rough but melodic sound into deeper and more confident style. On January 12, 2011, myGRAIN released their self-titled album. In the beginning of 2013 they announced new album Planetary Breathing, to release in April [1]. A Little later album was pushed back by 5 months to September due to disagreements with label.[2] Planetary Breathing became the final MyGrain album.

The band broke up in May 2015 on Facebook saying "All this has taken its toll on the band and for a long time, especially after all the problems we had with the release of “Planetary Breathing”, we have struggled with the question whether we still have the fire and the strength to go on...we will most definitely continue making music in our separate projects."
