Remains of Destruction is high octane heavy metal band based in Finland. We don't lock our selves in any genre but best describe for our music is post-apocalyptic power/symphonic heavy metal with vibes from the 80s/90s. The band formed in 2020 when our singer Jesse Yrjölä decided to leave his former band, because he wanted to do music that he really loved with no compromise. The obvious choice was to ask his former bandmate Timo Pelkonen to join in this new project, and R.O.D. was born! Soon after the first demos were made, drummer Janne Ollikainen joined the band, and our first single "silvery fields" release date was set to september 25th. To be continued...


Jesse Yrjölä

Lead Singer / Bass / Orchestration

"I have lived my whole life in Vantaa Finland, and I started my musical journey at the mid 90s as a guitarist for our school band. At the late 90s, as an angry 12 year old kid who had a mullet and a dream, I started my first very own black metal band called 'Babylon'. Since then i've been playing guitar and bass for various projects and i think it was 2013 when i stopped screaming and started to practice my clean singing as a backing vocalist for a band called Trapped in Chains.

I have been a producer since 2015 and I do most of our songwriting, producing and orchestral programming."
