Finnish progressive death metallers BARREN EARTH recently announced the departure of vocalist Mikko Kotamäki from the band. An update from the group follows:
"Barren Earth is looking for a vocalist capable of performing the band's material. Solid clean vocals and growling skills needed. We also require motivated attitude and ability to tour and rehearse. If you think you got what it takes, please send a short bio/description of yourself with audio samples from your vocals. All other footage (video clips, photos) would be highly appreciated as well. Please send your submission to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Since the group's inception, Mikko Kotamäki performed vocals on all of their studio recordings, consisting of the Our Twilight debut EP, and two full-length albums.
Says the band: "Dear friends. We regret to announce the departure of Mikko Kotamäki from Barren Earth. Due to conflicting schedules, Mikko cannot contribute to Barren Earth's activities any longer. The decision was made by mutual agreement with absolutely no drama involved. We will keep working on new material, and will launch search for a new vocalist shortly. Barren Earth wants to thank Mikko for his crucial input for Barren Earth's works and wishes him all the best in the future."
