Norther - Announce New Singer, Audio Available


Finnish metal outfit Norther has announced Aleksi Sihvonen (Medicated, ex-Imperanon) as replacement for ex-vocalist Petri Lindroos, who had left the band recently due to his commitments to Ensiferum. Norther states:

"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.

Besides this we have recruited, our old friend, Daniel Freyberg [Naildown] as live guitarist to complete our team. We also want to thank all of you worldwide who applied for the new vocalist spot!

We hereby welcome our great new guys, Aleksi and Daniel, to the band and we will present you the fresh Norther line-up live soon!"


Aleksi Sihvonen adds:
"Sometimes life can take you to places you wouldn't even imagine going to. So, here I am and I'm very grateful and humbly honoured to be part of the Norther family.

I feel I've met the band I've always wanted to be in. Like every musician I want to make the very effort to improve my skills as much as possible and push myself to the limits and in Norther I feel that I'm able to use my voice as full and diverse as I've always wanted to.
I'm very excited on working on new material, practicing and playing shows everywhere possible!! See you all soon!!"


A version of the song "Frozen Angel" (taken from Norther's current album "N") featuring Aleksi's vocals can be downloaded at this location.

Alexi is much better then Petri, Alexi was going to be my guitar teacher in helsinki ast year but i did not have enoghe time

no Petri is better lol,Aleksi is a good replacement of course but he don't have the potentials of Petri!!

listen to imperanon, alexsi does it good there and he is alot better then petri in my mind. Alexi is one of the talents of Finland thats unnoticed, now it's his time to shine!

yeah, He's great but now he uses more metalcore-ish screams, Petri is still the fucking guy!

I love me some Petri, but this guy is almost a dead replica. He's got a really good growl to him

I, however, don't like the singing at all. I'm not sure if that was ALL him, but some of the clean vocals sounded almost like female vocals.

Why the change in lyrics? Was that part of the audition? The lyrics were WAY better the way the were before. Or perhaps Petri took the lyrics with him. I have no idea.

But the guy is a good replacement, I'm very impressed.

Well this is a good news, yeah maybe he can do it, in Imperanon he did a great work, there is a song on that album which I love, "Shadowsouls" and well it is the same style used in all this kind of bands, but still I think he is going to do an acceptable job.

I just hope that will be another inspiration to the band because I think that norther go was going in a bad way but that should be eradicate with these two new guy who surly give a good influence...in hope that the next CD will be awsome:banger:
