TACERE Announces New Singer, Keyboardist

Finnish melodic metal band TACERE has recruited female singer of Taiya R. from the city of Tampere. She was selected after a long application process lasting over six months. TACERE has also hired a new keyboard player, Veli-Matti Kananen, who is best known for his work with POISONBLACK and ETERNAL TEARS OF SORROW.

Commented band leader Karri Knuuttila: "We were astonished about the huge amount of singers applying for the band from all around the world. Making a decision about the new singer was hard as there were a lot of talented applicants, some of who already had existing publicity and status. But in Taiya we found the perfect singer: She is extremely talented, looks killer, has a very cool attitude and stage presence and most importantly her personality fits the band perfectly. Now with the new lineup, the motivation of the band is higher than ever and we're really excited about the future of our band."

TACERE will enter the studio in February 2009 to begin recording its second album. No release date has yet been announced as the band is still looking for a proper partner to release the album with. The group has also launched a new website and a new MySpace page, both featuring pictures of the new lineup and a couple of demo/pre-production versions of songs that will appear on the forthcoming TACERE album with vocal performances from Taiya.

TACERE's new lineup will make its live debut this month in Helsinki.

TACERE's debut album, "Beautiful Darkness", was released in February 2007.
