Finnish horror metallers DIRGE ETERNAL, who feature former TURISAS bassist Hannes Horma on guitar, made their live debut with their new frontman, former DREAMTALE singer Nils Nordling, on March 2 at Suisto in Hämeenlinna, Finland. Video footage of the performance can be seen below.
DIRGE ETERNAL parted ways with vocalist Jani Perta in November 2012. The band explained in a statement: “Everyone agrees that taking this band to the next level is not possible with the current lineup. Jani made the decision himself, so there is no firing involved or any other hard feelings.”
DIRGE ETERNAL last year 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, 2012 at Escape in Riihimäki, Finland.
DIRGE ETERNAL‘s second music video, “The Slaughterhouse”, was premiered on May 4, 2012 at the Biorex movie theater in Hämeenlinnna.
