Extensive Definition

Denigrate is a heavy metal band from Tuusula, Finland, formed in 1996.
The band was in a movie project Menolippu Mombasaan in 2002, under the name No Future Today. This way they came somewhat famous in Finland, but the band members weren't too happy about it the way.
Warner Music soon published their debut album, Dismal Euphoria, along with the singles, but after that, the record deal was cancelled and the band is now looking for a better deal with some metal-label.
