Finnish metal band Norther has announced that Aleksi Sihvonen will be taking over their vocal duties. An MP3 of Aleksi performing the song "Frozen Angel" can be heard here. The band issued the following statement about recruiting the vocalist:

"After a hard search for a new vocalist we are honored to announce Aleksi Sihvonen as our new lead singer. He is a creative and diverse vocalist with loads of experience. He will surely add new input to the band with his talent and variable singing styles, and most importantly: his personality fits to the band perfectly.

"Besides this we have recruited, our old friend, Daniel Freyberg as live guitarist to complete our team. We also want to thank all of you worldwide who applied for the new vocalist spot!

"We hereby welcome our great new guys, Aleksi and Daniel, to the band and we will present you the fresh NORTHER line-up live soon!"

Aleksi Sihvonen also stated:

"Sometimes life can take you places you would not even imagine going to. So, here I am and I am very grateful and humbly honored to be part of the NORTHER family. I feel I have met the band I have always wanted to be in. Like every musician I want to make the very effort to improve my skills as much as possible and push myself to the limits and in NORTHER I feel that I am able to use my voice as full and diverse as I have always wanted to.

"I am very excited on working on new material, practicing and playing shows everywhere possible!! See you all soon!!"
