Finnish death/black metallers SEAR have announced the addition of vocalist H. Hyytiäinen and basist T. Landen to the group's ranks.Commented SEAR guitarist Matias Helle: "As many of you already know, we parted ways with T. Kuusela and M. Nieminen. The decision was [mutual]. Now, with the new members we are able to have rehearsals with the whole band after two years: quite a relief for us. "We were looking a singer who didn't have ten different (known) bands so his 'sound' would be unique. The whole band is very satisfied with this change and everything looks and sounds promising. And finally we can do live shows now that Hyytiäinen and Landen are with us. Our own motivation has grown after this line-up change and we are way more hungry than before. From this moment on H. Hyytiainen will make all the lyrics. "We just recorded a new song, 'The Execution', and you can download it [at this location]. This is a mid-tempo song — we wanted to record something bit different after our debut album. We have now five new songs for the upcoming second album. The songs are killer and much more darker and more twisted than the old ones! No drastic changes there but leaps forward to more intense, darker, groovier and heavier sound." SEAR's debut album, "Begin the Celebrations of Sin", was released in May 2005 via Dynamic Arts Records.
