||After 13 years of service, guitarist Harri Pikka (also in Total Devastation) has
|fled left melodic death metal outfit Omnium Gatherum. The band issued the following explanation:
"We're really sorry to announce that Harri Pikka has silently decided to flee the Omnium Gatherum crew after 13 years of solid service. We don't know his exact reasons for this but maybe someday mr. Mystery Man will tell us... At the moment we've decided to finish the new album as a 5-piece unit. But we have the best possible live guitar unit called Joonas Koto (Malpractice, ex-To/Die/For, ex-Hateframe) filling the second guitar live duties at the moment and it rocks!"
