Norther Announce New Vocalist
2009-04-14 by Adam Thomas STAFF | 15 Comments

Swedish metal outfit Norther have announced that Aleksi Shivonen (Medicated, Imperanon) will replace Petri Lindroos as vocalist. Lindroos left Norther due to commitments with Ensiferum. Norther have posted a newly redone version of the song "Frozen Angel" (off their latest album N) with Shivonen on vocals at http://norther.sherif.fi/norther-frozen_angel-by-aleksi_sihvonen.mp3

Quote:


"After a hard search for a new vocalist, we are honoured to announce Aleksi Sihvonen as our new lead singer. He's a creative and diverse vocalist with loads of experience. He will surely add new input to the band with his talent and variable singing styles, and most importantly: his personality fits to the band perfectly.

First thing I thought when I read the article.

Don't know what to think about his vocals. For starters, he's no Petri. This Message Edited On 04.14.09

Yeah Born, that's about the best way to sum it up, he's no Petri. I also wasn't expecting this much of a reworking of the song, sounds a lot different. Wasn't Petri the lead guitarist of the band, or just rhythm?

At least they got rid of the clean vocalist from the other guitarist, those just weren't working. These apparent female vocals aren't either for that matter, so I dunno...this could be the end of my interest in Norther.

I like this, Imperanon's full length was good and he's a pretty good guitarist/songwriter.

god the vocals by the new guy are HORRID. Petri was waaaaaaaaaay better. i like Norther a lot, sad that Petri is gone and with the new vocalist, I think that my interest in them will be gone quite quickly

Oh and btw, Norther is a finnish metal outfit.
