Jotnar Recruits New Vocalist

Jotnar has checked in with the following announcement about recruiting a new vocalist and working on an upcoming album:

“We are proud to introduce you our new lead singer, Mario Infantes. We’ve been working together in the pre-production of the vocals for the upcoming album for a few months now and the result is simply devastating! We are really looking forward you to listen it!

"Mario has started from scratch on each of the songs that will be part of the new album. Mario has been able to add a significant improvement and diversity into the songs that have been in our minds for months. He has an amazing wide vocal range that allows us to work from the more melodic to the most brutal and heartrending growls.

"Here you have a video of the pre-production demos where you can see a glimpse of what he can do. The sound is not definitive, just demo tracks, but we couldn’t resist to show you a pinch of it.
We will enter in studio very SOON to record the rest of the album. We will keep you updated!" More...
