Slumber - Calling It Quits, Becoming Two New Bands


The new year has barely started and there's already some bad news to report: Swedish Melodic Doom metal band Slumber are calling it a day. However, the members will continue their endeavors in two different bands.

"As from today, Slumber exists no more as a group. Slumber has now turned into two bands", is how the official statement reads.

The first band is called Atoma, and consists of vocalist Ehsan Kalantarpour, guitarist Markus Hill and bassist Siavosh Bigonah (ex-Ondskapt), together with Rickard Insulander, among others. The band's first album Skylight is already recorded and mastered, and will be released in the fall of 2011. Skylight was originally the new upcoming album of Slumber, named Resonance.

More info about Atoma as well as an album preview can be found on MySpace.

The second project, fronted by guitarist Jari Lindholm, is still unnamed, but is apparently two weeks away from recording its debut album. More details and some samples can be found here.

More updates on these two bands will follow shortly.

KEEP IT METAL
They should stay together as Slumber and have the two other bands as side projects and now you would have three bands and everyone would be happy....

Got to say, the unnamed band sounds considerably better than Atoma.

That sucks about the band splitting up, but hopefully these two bands will be suitable replacements.

Apparently atoma is going to be much diffrent
it's going to have softer sound and clean vocal
that may be the reason for slumber break up

Bad news
Slumber was one of my favorite bands, specially with two Iranian members.
H hope Atoma will become a good new band.

Jari Lindholm's new work reminds me of Slumber's Fallout. Definitely looking forward to that release.
