Ensiferum - Part Ways With Keyboardist


As posted on the band's website, Ensiferum has unfortunately suffered another member loss in the band as the band's long-time keyboard player Meiju Enho decided to leave the band. The band expresses their regret for her decision to depart the band, but despite the break-up the band will victoriously go on! You can read Meiju's afterwords here.

Emmi Silvennoinen from the band Exsecratus has been substituting Meiju from the beginning of this year (2007) and continues to act as the live/session keyboard player for Ensiferum until further notice.

Surely Markus Toivonen has the longest service time in Ensiferum...?

Anyway, she'll be missed, as she was hot, and Ensiferum's keyboards are often quite cool

Man, next album will barely have the original Ensiferum sound (only saved by Markus). She was good, I liked her, she brought a unique sound. Oh well, it will be exciting to see what new stuff they can come up with.

This is bad, Meiju was a very important part of Ensiferum, and she was very cute too

Im not surprised at all I could have predicted this, seeing as to how dreadfully shit Ensiferum became once Jari left. Sad that she had to leave, but Ensiferum hasnt been the same for me since Petri took over.....just a matter of time folks...and Ensiferum will be no more.

One half of all posters in here is saddened by the fact that Meiju was cute and there won't be any promo shots with her anymore. The other half complains about Ensiferum falling apart and pretend to be caring about the artistic direction of the band. Of those though there's only one post in this thread (Valaskjalf) who gave Victory Songs a rating which correlates with his disapproval displayed in this thread. Strange, innit?

The new lineup has proven itself both in the studio and live, on both occasions they blew me away and I can't wait to see them again in December. Ensiferum have always been great and will remain great, no matter who stands behind the keys or the mic. And I seriously cannot understand how people can post things like "Ensiferum can't die!!! They just can't!!! " - they've proven that they can survive without the main songwriter, lead guitarist and vocalist, they'll definitely survive this minor lineup change as well.

Maybe her looks have something to do... We can't deny that woman is a complete beauty.
Or the fact that Ensiferum has lost members along their career, but hey, they're still playing...
Maybe it's because they won't get a keyboarder as beautiful as Meihu

yes, it is sad she's gone too...

I think the band was only good with jari because (even if it was not his band) he WAS the band ! but he left 4 years ago... his new band is quite boring, I don't like wintersun at all...

now it seems the band is at its worst times (with the "beautiful" voice of petri lindroos haha) and the line-up changes, it seems, at every new album

so it's sad that meiju is gone but maybe the new keyboardist will have another way of playing, maybe a better one !

so i wait for a next album before i judge ^^ (and even if victory songs is their worst album it is not yet bad...)
