Finnish horror metallers DIRGE ETERNAL, who feature former TURISAS bassist Hannes Horma on guitar, have announced the addition of drummer Markus Ojanperä to the group’s ranks.
Commented the band: “We had a really tight competition between two great drummers, but Markus just convinced us all in the last audition. Only one and a half weeks with us, including two rehearsals, and he already nailed all the song in our set. He’s really committed to this and DIRGE ETERNAL is really looking forward to working with Markus. Our first stop will be Suisto-Klubi and after that we will start rehearsing some new songs…”
DIRGE ETERNAL recently completed work on the “Under The Spell” EP at Sound Supreme Studio in Hämeenlinna, Finland. In addition to playing lead guitar on the CD, Horma served as engineer and producer during the sessions.
“Under The Spell”‘s release was celebrated with a performance on May 5 at Escape in Riihimäki, Finland.
DIRGE ETERNAL‘s second music video, “The Slaughterhouse”, was premiered on May 4 at the Biorex movie theater in Hämeenlinnna.
