Smackbound is a metal band from Helsinki, Finland featuring the multi-talented vocalist and actress Netta Laurenne, who founded the group in 2015. Guitarist Teemu Mäntysaari (WINTERSUN) was the first to join Netta in the band and they were soon joined by Rolf Pilve (STRATOVARIUS, WINTERSUN) on drums, Vili Itäpelto (TRACEDAWN) on keyboards, and Tuomas Yli-Jaskari (TRACEDAWN) on bass.
The band debuted with a highly praised album “20/20” in the midst of the year 2020 after having been signed to Frontiers Music Srl. “20/20” was recorded at Sonic Pump Studios, produced by the band, and mixed and mastered by Jesse Vainio.
“We wanted to make metal mixed with all the goodies we love in music, yet you can’t beat the force and energy of metal. That’s why we brought everything to it,” says Netta.
The band is currently working on their second album which is due to be released in 2022.
