Pimentola was formed sometime in the late winter of the year 1996 by Lempo and Turja. Pimentola's purpose was to create dark/black metal influenced metal with a form and lyrics that were heavily based on ancient Finnish beliefs and mythology (mostly Kalevala). After the first demo Pimentola continued as a one man band of Lempo. On the second demo the style of music was already more synth based dark metal with machine drums. A MCDR released next, in 2000, was drastically different in style, being neoclassical instrumental music. Later on, because of obtaining a sampler, the music of Pimentola has reached out to new dimensions still, sounding nowadays something like orchestral/industrial with slight ethnic and tribal influences... remaining still instrumental, but with occasional samples of the human voice. The music of Pimentola is currently very much depending on samples, which have been obtained from various sources, or sometimes self-produced. Keyboards and real acoustic instruments are still included though.

In 2006 Pimentola was signed to the highly influential Swedish label Cold Meat Industry, which released the CD Misantropolis in 2007. Misantropolis introduces more vocals than on past Pimentola releases; hysteric screams, gloomy choirs/harmonies; hand in had with electronic sounds, samplings and acoustic instruments; accordion, violins, theremin, metal percussions and various kinds of drums.
