The band Tombstone was founded in 2003 in the mysterious woods of Southern Ostrobothnia on the Finnish west coast.
It all began when Kenneth Nylund and Mattias Sjöholm started jamming together in their village Malax in early 2001.
After playing together for a while they found the drummer Simon Åbacka.

When Kenneth and Mattias went to Lappfjärds folkhögskola to study sound technology in 2004, they met Johan Granström and Thomas Knipström who joined the band later on and the band was now completely formed in 2006.

From day one, Tombstone has been a TRUE Heavy Metal band and the musical influences are highly affected by great bands from the 70’s and 80’s, such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Manowar and Dio.
Due to having three guitars in the line-up, Tombstone does not only offer heavy head banging riffs, but melodic masterpieces as well.
