Exsecratus Vocalist And Guitarist Depart

Finnish metal band Exsecratus, which features in its ranks Jussi Raatikainen (guitar), the older brother of Chldren Of Bodom drummer Jaska, has confirmed the departures of singer Leeni-Maria Hovila and guitarist Tony Hentilä. The group says, "After a long and deep thought, we have decided not to comment these happenings from our point of view at all. Too many things have happened that led to these actions, so we feel best not to say anything so no one gets their feelings hurt. Both of them may tell their side of the stories on their MySpace pages if they want. H.Saari will handle Tony's duties at least for now. But now we are searching for a new vocalist. If you have both the voice and the will to fill the shoes that Leeni-Maria left behind, feel free to contact us at: Singerwanted@Exsecratus (dot) com and send us your demo, picture and some additional info about yourself."

Exsecratus released its debut album, "Tainted Dreams", in Japan on January 23, 2008 through Spiritual Beast (via a licensing deal with Violent Journey Records). The Japanese pressing of the album contains new artwork and two bonus tracks: "For You" and "Death Brings Me Joy".

"Tainted Dreams" was released in Finland on September 3, 2007 via Violent Journey Records. The CD features a guest appearance by Norther frontman Petri Lindroos in the track Under the Winter Moon. According to a press release, "These young masters of melodic metal combine influences from band like Children Of Bodom, Sonata Arctica, Nightwish, Dimmu Borgir and lots and lots of other big names. The male-female vocal combos work together like a machine, as well as the melodies and heart pounding riffs compel the listeners to bang their heads."

Coma Clinic Posts New Promo Songs Online

Finland's Coma Clinic is a new band from Misery Inc. mastermind Janne Tolonen (ex-Profane Omen). Two years ago Tolonen and vocalist Henri Eerola (recently known from his work in Pentatonik) decided to team up but the collaboration did not finally take place until this spring.

The first product from Coma Clinic is promotional CD containing three songs. Unafraid to break some boundaries, the effort mixes modern trash-metal with overflowing melodies and the intensity of hardcore.

All guitar solos were played by young, promising guitar hero Kimi Rautiainen (also in Exsecratus).

You can check out the three promo songs on the band's MySpace page.
