Ruoska - Ruma Rakkaus (Ugly Love) [ENG Lyrics]
Mennander was born in Finland in 1976. He was in the Finnish army (the year he entered is unknown) until 1997. A year later, in 1998, he then created the comic/hard rock band Natsipaska with Anssi Auvinen, Mika Kamppi and Sami Karppinen. The band released three albums before retiring in 2000. Then, in 2002, with a guitarist, Kai Ahvenranta, Ruoska was started. Although Ruoska is still an on-going band, Patrik Mennander has not been there every single step of the way, since he left for the symphonic metal band Battlelore from end 2003 to near-end 2004, between the releases of Ruoska's second and third albums. Since then, Mennander has stayed with Ruoska, and is best known as singer of Ruoska.
Mennander is also a tattoo artist at "His Master's Tattoo" in Mikkeli, Finland.
