Oulu, Finland-based metallers GHOST MACHINERY have recruited Taage Laiho (KILPI, ALTARIA) as the band's new vocalist.

Laiho sang on two ALTARIA albums — "Divinity" and "The Fallen Empire" — and he also took part in an extensive European tour with the band in 2006.

KILPI just released its fifth album, "Pirun Merta", and is currently touring in Finland.

Formed in 2002 by Pete Ahonen (BURNING POINT), GHOST MACHINERY released its debut album, "Haunting Remains", in December 2004. Since then, the band has been very active behind the scenes and the guys in the group have been in and out from the studio recording the second GHOST MACHNERY CD, "Out for Blood". Taage was able to put his "mark" on the record with his great singing as well as his lyrics.

GHOST MACHINERY is currently putting the finishing touches on "Out for Blood" and the plan is to release a single at the end of this year.


Taage Laiho (KILPI, ex-ALTARIA) - Vocals
Mikko Myllylä (KING'S RUIN) - Guitar
Sami Nyman - Bass
Jussi Ontero (BURNING POINT, KING'S RUIN) - Drums (and keyboards on the album)
