Stam1na released its self-titled debut in the spring 2005. Before, their demos were praised, and the buzz around their energetic live shows was constantly growing. Eventually Stam1na was picked up by Sakara Records. Stam1na’s uncompromising attitude and unquestionable talent impressed the newly founded label, and they became the second signing of Sakara.
Their self-titled debut album catapulted Stam1na straight to the top of the Finnish metal scene after its release. Stam1na toured around Finland and conquered more and more audience. Stam1na was voted as “The Newcomer of The Year” in all relevant medias. Their second album, “Uudet Kymmenen Käskyä”, went straight to the 3rd place in the Official Finnish Chart, and stayed in the Top 40 for 17 consecutive weeks, and the album has now sold gold, over 15 000 copies. “Uudet Kymmenen Käskyä” won the Emma Award, i.e. Finnish GRAMMY, in Metal Album of the Year category. The single “Likainen parketti” was #1 in Official Single Charts.
“Uudet kymmenen käskyä” was released in Germany by ZYX Music in 2007. In autumn 2007, Apocalyptica invited Stam1na to play 14 gigs with them in the Baltic countries and Germany. Over 40 000 people enjoyed an unforgettable Stam1na show of virtuosity and great fun.
Their third album “Raja” spent two weeks on the #1 position of the Finnish album charts and again sold over 15000 copies. “Raja” took the band to Germany again. This time they made thousands of metalheads go nuts on Wacken Open Air festival.
In February 2010 Stam1na released their fourth album “Viimeinen Atlantis” and brought Stam1na Emma Award’s from the categories “The Metal Album of the Year” and “The Band of The Year”.

"With Palmer It's simply amazing how much clearer it all gets on stage: to plug it in and play with no backround racket from the cabinets. I love to hear the clear sound of my 5150 amps and active guitar mics directly in my in-ear monitors. Stam1na plays fast and much detailed music. It is essential to get a precise sound especially when playing live. Palmer is the solution!" Antti "Hyrde" Hyyrynen, vocals and guitar "The Palmer speaker simulators have become an essential part of our live sound and monitoring. With seven string guitars it's important to keep the guitar sound tight, rich and clear from any noise on stage. I'll get the uncompromised sound right from the amp head. Palmer is the way to go!" Pekka "Pexi" Olkkonen, lead guitar "Palmer gives you "right in your face sound" and that works very well in metal music. And it also works very well with IEM systems. I Love it!" FOH Engineer
