WARMEN started out in 2000 as Wirman's solo project with a bunch of hired guns helping him to put his musical inspiration to life. The band's debut album, "Unknown Soldier" (2000) was exactly that, but already on the group's second effort, "Beyond Abilities" (2002), WARMEN was becoming more like a real band.

Now after a five-year gap, Janne and WARMEN have completed work on a slamming fifth studio album, "First Of The Five Elements", which takes the listener from the potent vibrating rock of "The Race" to a straight punch in the face with "Suck My Attitude". Also included is a visit to some traditional WARMEN instrumental fury in he shape of the title track, "First Of The Five Elements", and, as always, they have managed to squeeze in a couple signature WARMEN-styled covers, ALICE COOPER's "Man Behind The Mask" and MADONNA's "Like A Virgin".

The song "The Race" from "First Of The Five Elements" can be streamed at PledgeMusic.com.

WARMEN celebrated its 10-year anniversary with a concert during the Helsinki Metal Meeting weekend in February 2010 at Dante's Highlight in Helsinki, Finland. The band's third live performance ever included guest appearances by Alexi Laiho (CHILDREN OF BODOM) on a cover version of ROCKWELL's "Somebody's Watching Me", Timo Kotipelto (STRATOVARIUS), Finnish pop/rock queen Jonna Kosonen (JONNA'S PROBLEM) and Pasi Rantanen (ex-THUNDERSTONE).

Spinefarm Records released a WARMEN compilation album entitled "The Evil That Warmen Do" on January 27, 2010.

WARMEN's fourth album, "Japanese Hospitality", entered the Finnish chart at position No. 36. The 10-song effort included two cover versions — "Separate Ways", originally recorded by JOURNEY, and "Black Cat" by JANET JACKSON, featuring a guest appearance by Jonna Kosonen. Other guest musicians that appear on the CD include Laiho, Rantanen, Kotipelto and Marko Vaara.
