March 3, 2009, 10 years ago
NORTHER have issued the following announcement:"Finnish metal band Norther parts ways with long time singer/guitarist Petri Lindroos. Norther was forced to let Petri go to be able to continue. Petri's full time engagement in ENSIFERUM increasingly prevented Norther from functioning as an active band. Petri wishes Norther all the best for the future. Current Norther crew, Kristian, Jukka, Tuomas and Heikki, wants to thank Petri for all these great years together and wishes him the best of luck with Ensiferum.
Norther was founded in 2000 and has so far released five full length albums, 2 EPs, a DVD, four singles and a movie soundtrack for a Finnish film V2. Over the years Norther has done extensive touring with bands like DIMMU BORGIR, HYPOCRISY, TURISAS, FINNTROLL, etc. Norther is currently signed to Century Media Records (Europe and USA) and Marquee Avalon (Japan).
Additional information concerning the recruitment of a new singer will be provided soon."
