Lumina Polaris is a christian rock/metal band from Oulu, Finland. They were originally formed in the spring of 2000. Their sound is similar (as well as their hometown) to Sentenced except that they sing in Finnish and from a different point of view on life/death. The group won the Finnish "gospel championship" competition during 2005. Their first actual release was Veren merkki -single in 2003 which was sold out quite quickly and received positive feedback.
