CATAMENIA Announces New Keyboardist

Finnish melodic black metallers CATAMENIA have issued the following update:

"We've decided to take the keyboards back to our music, so we want to welcome Jussi Sauvola [pictured below] from SILENT THRENODY and DECROWNED to join the band. Welcome to CATA-family, Jussi!"

CATAMENIA last December announced the addition of vocalist Juha-Matti Perttunen (ALL AGAINST) to the group's ranks. The band also parted ways with Ari Nissil (guitar, vocals), Toni Kansanoja (bass/backing vocals), Kari Vhkuopus (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
Jussi Sauvola - Keyboards

"Cavalcade", the latest video from CATAMENIA, can be viewed below. The song is the title cut of the band's most recent album, which was released in February 2010 via Massacre Records. The CD was recorded and mixed by Kari Vhkuopus 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".
