The history of Pressure Points goes back to the late summer of 2004, Heinola, Finland. Kari and I shared the same musical interests and on one night he talked to me about his idea of starting a little project. I was immediately excited about it. Soon we were jamming together and noticing that this might work. As it started to do so, some of Kari’s old riffs and jam-sessions ended up finding their places in lengthy songs. Enthusiasm grew and we started to take the idea a little more seriously than in the very beginning, no longer a side-project among the others. We started to look for a bass player and quickly found one, Janne Parikka. He joined in the fall, after a few months from the start. With this setup we played for half a year and made our first demo, until it was time to recruit more members because we had to start thinking about gigging. After some time and thinking we managed to get Juho Suortti as a permanent member on the second guitar. On behalf of keyboards, it was not until the beginning of 2007 when we found what we had been looking for so long, Veli-Matti Kyllönen. He fulfilled the position not only as a player, but as a mental and practical supporter of the band.
