Miika Tenkula of Sentenced…R.I.P. at 35


Sentenced, one of my favorite metal bands along with people around the globe now mourns for the lost of their lead guitarist Miika Tenkula, probably one of the most talented metal guitarist in Finland. I don’t want to alter any stories to respect the passing away of Mr. Tenkula so here is the story.


Miika Tenkula, former lead guitarist and main songwriter of the acclaimed Finnish band SENTENCED, was found dead at his home earlier today (Thursday, February 19). He was 35 years old.

Nalle Österman (GANDALF, LULLACRY, CHAOSBREED) tells BLABBERMOUTH.NET, “It’s true, confirmed personally by [former SENTENCED] drummer Vesa Ranta.

“The fact remains that Miika had a serious drinking problem for many years which escalated after SENTENCED was buried. They don’t call it King Alcohol for nothing…

“The metal scene in Finland mourns now for one of the most talented metal guitarists to ever emerge from [the country].”

The official cause of Miika’s death has not yet been released.
