The Man-Eating Tree Is a Finnish four-piece band based in Oulu, performing atmospheric metal music. The seed of the new band was planted when Vesa Ranta, having taken a break from music after Sentenced, began to overcome his post-Sentenced battle fatigue and lack of musical motivation. The idea of a new band – or bands – was eventually brainstormed over a period of time between Vesa and his friends, including gentlemen Miika Tenkula, Aaron Rantonen, Janne Markus and Mikko Uusimaa. Plans were made reality in 2009; the outfit was completed by the addition of Tuomas Tuominen as a vocalist and Heidi Määttä as a keyboard player. First demo recordings were made in the spring and summer of 2009.
In August 2017, Vesa Ranta retired from his active and long musical career, and stepped aside from The Man-Eating Tree. Vesa was there from the first moments of TMET, and since that he was an essential part in making TMET as it is today. In 2017, Jami Heikkala and Altti Veteläinen left to concentrate on other things. In 2018, Samuli Lindberg (drums) joined the corps, and The Man-Eating Tree continued as a four-piece.
During 2017-18 The Man-Eating Tree put together loads of interesting ideas. But due to various personal issues, the songwriting process itself was hard and eventually prolonged. As the new material finally started to take shape, it was very clear this was going to be some of the deepest, darkest and grief-stricken stuff ever written by The Man-Eating Tree.
The year 2019 will be the birthyear of the new The Man-Eating Tree release.
