CATAMENIA Announces New Singer

Finnish melodic black metallers CATAMENIA have announced the addition of vocalist Juha-Matti Perttunen (pictured below; ALL AGAINST) to the group's ranks. The band states, "There was a damn tight fight between the last three candidates [which included Ash from AGATHODAIMON and Olli-Jukka Mustonen], but Juha-Matti took over everything with his charisma, attitude and especially wide variety of different vocals to cope with our all songs."

CATAMENIA recently parted ways with Ari Nissilä (guitar, vocals), Toni Kansanoja (bass/backing vocals), Kari Vähäkuopus (clean vocals) and Mikko Nevanlahti (drums) and replaced them with Mikko Hepo-oja (bass), Tony Qvick (drums) and Sauli Jauhiainen (guitar).

The new CATAMENIA lineup is:

Riku Hopeakoski - Guitar
Mikko Hepo-oja - Bass
Tony Qvick - Drums
Sauli Jauhiainen - Guitar
Juha-Matti Perttunen - Vocals

"Cavalcade", the latest video from CATAMENIA, can be viewed below. The song is the title cut of the band's most recenr album, which was released on February 26 via Massacre Records. The CD was recorded and mixed by Kari Vähäkuopus at Mastervox Studios in Oulu, Finland and was produced by CATAMENIA. POISONBLACK/ex-SENTENCED frontman Ville Laihiala makes a guest appearance on the album's opening track, "Blood Trails".
