Watch Me Fall
Sevänen grew up on the coast of Finland in the town of Turku, before moving to Joensuu where he was raised. In 1994 he began learning the bass and formed his first band: a punk rock act called Paise. The following year the band changed its name to Stonecrow and began to shift its musical style. Sevänen left the band two years later due to musical differences. However, following his departure, he quickly collaborated with musicians whose interests aligned themselves with Sevänen and formed the melodic death metal band Insomnium.
