HATEFORM Parts Ways With Drummer, Announces Replacement

Finnish death/thrash metallers HATEFORM have issued the following update:

"HATEFORM decided to go separate ways with one of the founding members, drummer Tuomas Vähämaa. This was something that would have come ahead of us sooner or later and we wanted to take care of this before our second album studio sessions, which are planned to start in the end of the year. This decision didn't start any conflicts from either parties and HATEFORM wishes all the best to Tuomas.

"New firepower is already in sight, as Tuomo Latvala, the man behind such bands like TORTURE KILLER and DEMIGOD, showed his talents at the TLY Open Air gig. Tuomo did a fantastic job as he filled up on the drummer's duties, and now he will be joining the band as a full member of HATEFORM."

HATEFORM's debut album, "Dominance", was recorded and mixed at Palmgren Conservatory and Ansa Studios by Jori Haukio and Teemu Heinola. It was mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox. The cover art was created by Ville Hautaluoma.

Formed in 2004, HATEFORM previously recorded two demos and received "Demo of the Month" accolades from all major Finnish music publications (Imperiumi, Inferno and Soundi). In addition, it performed dozens of gigs with such acts as DIABLO, PAIN CONFESSOR and MOKOMA.
