Finnish metal lords Amoral have reunited with their original vocalist Niko Kalliojarvi to work on the band’s 7th studio album.
Kalliojarvi left the band in 2008 after they recorded their 3rd album and was replaced by Ari Koivunen – the pair will share singing duties on the new album.
Kalliojarvi says: “The cameos at during the last few years have been fun. When I was asked to come back to the group I was both surprised and excited for musical reasons, but also since I’ve always been comfortable in said company.”
Guitarist Ben Varon reports: “Niko’s company felt natural both on stage and backstage. Hearing his voice on those songs after a long time felt good.
“Once I realised what a great guitarist he is these days, the vision started to get clearer – this would be just the thing to take our musical journey to the next level. Two singers, three guitar players, one of which is now a part-time keyboardist. Things just got interesting.”
No news on a release date yet, but they hope it will be out this year.
