AMORPHIS Part Ways With Drummer, Replacement Found

After a lengthy career on the Finnish metal scene (including a stint with STONE, among others), drummer Pekka Kasari has left AMORPHIS to focus on family life.

“We have tentatively found a replacement drummer, but I can't reveal his name yet,” guitarist Esa Holopainen told “This is Pekka's own decision, and there's no drama involved in the split.”
