MyGrain Splits With Guitarist

Finland's MyGrain has posted the following message online about parting ways with the band's guitarist:

"Today we have sad news: Resistor is leaving MyGrain. The awesome sold out Nosturi show was his last one with us and now the time has come for him to step aside.

"We faced Resi's decision with heavy hearts, but this is of course something that has to be accepted and respected. We have played together for nine years and grown to be a family, so the news was not easy to confront. Although our musical collaboration is now ending, the friendship with Resi will continue forever. He will always be a part of this bunch of monkeys and will be seen on our support group in the future.

"Despite of all the setbacks that have occurred this year, we will go full steam ahead, as Resi already mentioned. We have written a lot of new stuff during the long period of silence before 'Planetary Breathing' was released so the next album is already in the making. We are also lucky and overwhelmingly enthusiastic to welcome the new guitarist Joni Lahdenkauppi to join MyGrain team! Joni replaced Mr. Downhill on our European tour with Insomnium and Before the Dawn and instantly became a dear new member of MyGrain family. He is an extremely talented and musical guitarist so we feel that the sky is the only limit for the upcoming new material. With him we can develop our sound even further. You will meet him soon on the gigs next year but in the meanwhile, you can check his playing here.

"All the best to Resi! The awesome years with you will never be forgotten." More...

Metalheim Festival 2011

The week leading up to Metalheim festival was taut with anticipation, and excitement. The festival is hosted by the wonderful people at Metalheim Productions and takes place in two cities, Helsinki and Oulu. Each day featured five bands, and they travel between the two cities so we all partake in the epicness of the tour.

This year’s agenda boasted a fantastic lineup both days. Naturally, the week dragged on and on; and with a brand new Canon eos just waiting to be used, it felt like eternity until Friday. I finally arrived at Nosturi, and was lucky indeed to be able to interview Ville Sorvali of Moonsorrow, and later met with Kari, Gunnar and Terji of Tyr. Read the interview with Ville Sorvali here, others coming soon! More...

MyGrain Enters The Studio and Posts Studio Blog

MyGrain has entered the studio to record the third album. Read a studio blog at this location.

Read an except from the studio blog below:

"This is the day that everyone's been waiting for over two years now, the recordings of the third MyGrain album are about to start! We can tell you that we're surely not the ones who have been waiting for this the least. The last year and a half or so that we have been writing and putting the new songs together, hasn't been the easiest time for the band. As our sound has taken huge steps forward to more progressive and complex direction, it has meant that finding the last forms of the songs has been way more difficult than before. All this has taken a lot more effort than we could have imagined when the first chords were composed and we're relieved that the biggest work is now behind. All we have to do now is to try to play the hard shit we've been working with during this long period, ha! The forthcoming months will show us, whether we have trained enough or not." More...

Mygrain Finish Recording New Album

Finnish melodic death metal act MYGRAIN has issued the following update:

"Signs Of Existence has finally been recorded! Every chord and beat is on the tape and there's nothing that can save us anymore. We're extremely happy with the result and as we had a tiny pre-pre-listening session for a small amount of people last weekend, they seemed to be content too. The mastering process will take place next Tuesday at Finnvox Studios and after that there's nothing to do but wait for the cd:s to arrive from the factory (and to hope no one fucks up this time).

In a couple of months we'll let you know the Finnish tour dates. There are a couple of them confirmed already but you just have to be patient for a lil' while. There's gonna be new exciting places to conquer, so see you on the road next spring! Before that, we will launch renewed website on this same address, so stay tuned."
