Subterranean Masquerade announced that Green Carnation/Tristania vocalist Kjetil Nordhus of Norway will be the band's new vocalist to join Paul Kuhr (Novembers Doom). News on the band's new album is expected soon.

The announcement reads:

"Subterranean Masquerade are pleased and excited to announce Kjetil Nordhus (Green Carnation, Tristania) as the band's new singer. Kjetil is joining Paul Kuhr of Novembers Doom/These Are They, who have been with the band since the first album."

Mastermind and song writer Tomer Pink commented: "This is a great honor for us and a massive step forward for the band. I've been a fan of Kjetil work since the early Green Carnation albums, this is a dream come true!"

Nordhus added: "I have known about Subterranean Masquerade for years, since Green Carnation's time together with them on The End Records. They deserve a lot of respect for their releases until now, and when the opportunity came along to participate on their next album, it was certainly something that triggered me. I am very happy for this new musical challenge and I am eager to share the music with old and new fans of Subterranean Masquerade.

"I have met Paul a few times on Green Carnation tours and festival, and I have been a fan of November's Doom and his vocal style for years. To be a co-singer together with Paul is also something that makes this very exciting for me."

Kjetil joins a lineup that includes drummer Matan Shmuely (Orphaned Land), Keyboardist Shai Yallin (Solstice Coil), guitarists Tomer Pink & Or Shalev and Bassist Golan Farhi. On the lineup, Pink added: "This is the first time we function like a band and not just a project, everyone brings his own signature and influences and together we've created something I think is very special."
