 R.I.P. Juhani Palomäki
Juhani Palomäki’s musical career, including the composition of eight full-length albums for Yearning and Colosseum, has ended as he was found deceased on Saturday 15th May 2010.
 His final composition, Colosseum’s recently recorded third album, Chapter 3: Parasomnia, shall be released as planned, in order to honour Juhani’s memory.
 This also marks the end of Colosseum as a band, but Juhani’s musical genius and artistic integrity shall nevertheless forever live on, both on his records and in our hearts.
We have lost a brilliant musician and a true friend, who will be greatly missed not only by us, but by his loved ones and countless people all around the world who have been touched by his art.

Farewell, Juhani. May you rest in peace.

- Olli, Janne, Sameli.


First of all, R.I.P Juhani Palomaki, a great musician has died.

This sucks, Colosseum was one of my favourite funeral doom bands, they have created two awesome albums with an earie atmosphere. The keyboards are simply perfect with this cinematic/epic touch. I think that is a great loss for the funeral doom scene. I can´t wait to listen their last opus, which undoubtfully will have a TRUE funeral feeling.

What an awful year...
