Pressure Points is a progressive metal band founded in Heinola, Finland, in the summer of 2004.

Our music is a mixture of many different styles of which metal is the most prominent. Such bands like Porcupine Tree, Rush, Dream Theater and Akercocke are among our biggest influences.

Starting from early 2007, we have played over 100 gigs, including a tour with Nile in February 2011 in North Europe, a tour with Keep of Kalessin in 2010 in Finland, and several other performances. In addition, we have shared the stage with such bands like Katatonia, Samael, Septicflesh etc. Our goal is to head for the international markets.

Our debut album Remorses to Remember, released in January 2010, received mostly splendid reviews. It also peaked on the Finnish Album Charts at #44 and made its first appearances in the Finnish national radio.

Pressure Points was ranked second as a newcomer of the year category in the Finnish Metal Awards in 2011. A third place was granted in 2008 in the best demo band category in the same competition.

Our second album False Lights was published on August 14th, 2015.
