MOONSORROW Guitar Stolen In Montreal

Finnish folk/pagan metal band MOONSORROW has issued the following statement:

"MOONSORROW played in Montreal [Quebec, Canada] at the Medley club on April 29. Sometime during the day/night, someone broke in the tour bus and stole our very special ESP custom shop Star guitar [pictured below]. The guitar is cream white with abalone star shaped inlays and gold hardware. The guitar can be easily recognized by the star inlays on frets 3, 5, 7, 12, 15 and 17 and creamy 'vintage white' color. The back of the neck is not painted. It was in a rectangular flight case made by Finnish company Transit Case.

"The guitar's serial number is: T0842201

"If you have seen the guitar, or you know where it is, PLEASE contact the police and send an e-mail to: [email protected] You can also call or send SMS to +358451376836.

"The person who finds the guitar or gives the clue that leads us finding it, will be rewarded with 400 euros (approximately $530).

"The guitar was Janne's [Perttilä] most beloved instrument and an important part of MOONSORROW's live performance.

"We beg you to keep your eyes open for this guitar.

"Along with the guitar was stolen Mitja Harvilahti's [guitar] grey suitcase, including clothes, accessories and a Canon Autozoom 1014 Super8 film camera.

MOONSORROW's latest EP, "Tulimyrsky" (Firestorm), came out in April 2008 via Spikefarm Records. The CD contains over 60 minutes of music, including a cover version of METALLICA's "For Whom The Bell Tolls".

The band's most recent album, "Viides Luku – Hävitetty", was released in North America in April 2007 via Unruly Sounds/The End Records. The CD — 56 minutes of music comprised from two songs — continues to place the group as one of the forerunners of the folk/viking metal scene due in part to their extensive use of folklore and pagan elements in their music and imagery.
