Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
F.I.N. was born in the 2006, when my old Gothic/Doom band "The Sad Darkness of thy Love" was broken. From these moment I work on the keyboards and do the Demo Tierra de Olvido in the same year under the line of Atmosphere/Drone Funeral Doom. Time after, F.I.N. was members that works on our first Single & Split's works un der the FunerART Label, splits with one band from Egypt (Grave Solace), another with one from Singapore (Overhaul In Damnation) and a 3-Way Split with the Chilean pioneers of Uden & Voice Transmissions with the Deceased (Both from Chlie). After of it, they get out to bring life to herself projects as Funeral Memories, Frustration Emotions & La Vermut.
In the 2008 F.I.N. launch their fist EP called LAYIL on the north american label Gelid Glacier Records, it sold out in weeks, after the FunerART Label make a second edition on Chile with a Bonustrack. After it we work with the Russian guys of Korolev Zond in one split released under Kapustin Yar Records (U.S.A.). and after we work with the Mexican (((O))) in one Split/Lp of only one track called EL CICLO DE LA IMPOTENCIA DE LA CONCIENCIA made by Nokturnal Transmissions Records (U.S.A.). both splits on the 2009 under the line up of Sammael on guitar and me in keyboards & Voice.
2010 carry us a new line-up, when we create new tracks and doing a new impression on the stage to our followers. On our sound we was more in the line of black, and the local zines was called us a Black/Drone/Funeral Doom band. in March, we see the launch of our last 3-way Split for the moment. this split was called Architectes and was between Tomhet (Canada) & Throudos (Norway/Chile) produced by the North American Label 9th Meridian Records.
On this year, we released our first LP called LA ESPERANZA QUE NUNCA SE PIERDE... ES LA DE MORIR under the Japan label Sabbathid Records, who was made of it an amazing release, a mix of art with the factory. This Lp are reviewed in U.S.A., Germany, Brazil, Mexico and with very good comments.
