WINTERSUN Part Ways With Guitarist, Seek Replacement

WINTERSUN, the Finnish band featuring former ENSIFERUM singer/guitarist Jari Mäenpää, have parted ways with guitarist Oliver Fokin. "Oliver has decided that he can't contiune in WINTERSUN as a guitarist, because his time is filled with other activities/jobs," the band write on their web site. "So WINTERSUN is looking for a guitarist and a synthplayer, but we are mainly looking for Finnish members."

WINTERSUN's self-titled debut album was released last month through Nuclear Blast. The band's music has been described as a mix between early AMORPHIS, CHILDREN OF BODOM, FINNTROLL and ENSIFERUM.
