Suruaika was a gothic rock/post-punk band from Tampere, Finland. Found in 1997, originally under the name "Todellisuus 666". Original line-up was Matthew (vocals & stringed instruments), Tuomas (lyrics) and Toni (electronics). Todellisuus 666 was a comics-styled continuation of classic finnish gothic rock tradition (Musta Paraati, Silmät) and was backed up by a drum machine. As the band changed it's name to Suruaika, it's style also shifted to a little bit more serious direction.
