Hall Of Fame 2017 Dani Kansanaho



For our first induction into this years Hall Of Fame, we induct Mr Dani Kansanaho formerly of Belfast based Death metal band Shrouded. Which was very much his band so to speak. It was all a product of his creativity and imagination.  He was the mastermind behind the sound that they created, as well as the visual aspect of Shrouded. 

This year aged just 23 he lost his battle with depression and sadly took his own life. In the same year he played Bloodstock Festival and released their acclaimed EP  ‘Ominous Divinity’ 

A true loss to the Irish metal scene as he was a uniquely talented young man. 

Depression doesn’t care about your achievements, goals or dreams becoming a reality. It’s a truly terrible illness that also took Chris Cornell as an example this year. 

We offer our deepest condolences to Dani’s family, friends and his brothers in Shrouded. 

We do not want this man to be forgotten so we are inducting him  to our hall of fame. Where he shall remain remembered in the now and in the future.
