Tacere originally started as the solo project of front man Karri Tacere in the early 2000s, but quickly developed into a "real" line-up and the name TACERE first appeared in 2002/2003. After hiring Helena Haaparanta as the female singer in 2004 Tacere got its first stable line-up and female vocals. The band put out a plethora of demos until in 2005 they were picked up by a high-end record label.
The band released its first mini-CD “A Voice in the dark” in November 2006 reaching a top-10 chart position in Finland. Followed by debut album “Beautiful Darkness” in Scandinavia March 2007. Later during the same year releases followed for example in Russia, the CIS-states, Japan and Thailand. The album was produced together by Karri and producer guru Anssi Kippo (Children of Bodom etc.) and it received a great response from both the fans and critics. In Japan the album got an especially good response and achieved remarkable sales (e.g. reaching HMV genre chart #3) to be a debut album of an unknown metal band.
The band parted ways with the record label “Suomen Musiikki” in early 2008, the band's manager was also discharged and later in the spring the singer Helena Haaparanta quit the band. A show in the famous “On The Rocks” club in Helsinki 3th March 2008 remained as the last performance of the band with the debut album line-up.
A long and hard search process to find a new singer followed shortly. A huge amount of people applied for the singer position from all around the world, and it took a long time, but Tacere finally found their new perfect singer, Taiya.
After working on the follow-up to the 2007 debut Beautiful Darkness for over 2 years the new album was released in 2012! The band has a real dream line-up, fantastic new song material and more enthusiasm and energy than ever before.
