Defunct Finnish metallers SENTENCED have been nominated in the "Album of the Year", "Band of the Year" and "Cover Art of the Year" categories at the Finnish Metal Awards 2005.

As previously reported, SENTENCED were awarded with gold-album plaques commemorating Finnish sales of in excess of 15,000 copies of their final album, "The Funeral Album". The CD topped the Finnish album chart upon its release this past May and peaked at No. 49 on the German Media Control chart.

SENTENCED played their final gig on Saturday, October 1 at Club Teatria in Oulu, Finland. The very last show was filmed and recorded by Klaffi Productions from Oulu, Finland (who previously worked with the group on their "Ever-Frost" video) and will be released in early 2006 as a live DVD (tentatively titled "Buried Alive").

The follow-up to 2002's "The Cold White Light", "The Funeral Album" was recorded primarily at Finnvox and Tonebox studios (both in Finland), and mixed and mastered at Finnvox. Producing the effort was Hiili Hiilesmaa, who also worked with the group on their last two albums, 2000's "Crimson" and "The Cold White Light".
