Helsinki-based progressive metallers ADAMANTRA have parted ways with lead vocalist Tuomas Nieminen.
Commented bassist/leader Jukka Hoffrén: “Although feeling a bit blue now, we intend to look forward.
“This decision has not been easy, but we feel it to be the right one nonetheless.
“Since day one, Tuomas has trodden a long road with us — now our paths separate for a fresh start.
“Tuomas is up there with the very best of Finland’s heavy metal vocalists, and we wish him nothing but the best in life and his musical journey. We are now hoping to swiftly discover a new vocalist, in order to wrap up the upcoming album.”
ADAMANTRA‘s debut album, “Revival”, was released in 2009 and received considerable acclaim from the progressive metal audience and critics alike.
The band is currently working on its next CD at Pathos Music Studio with producer Mikko P. Mustonen.
