Omnium Gatherum Recruits New Bassist Erkki Silvennoinen

Omnium Gatherum, which is currently in the mixing process with the mighty Dan Swanö for an upcoming new album, is proud to announce Erkki Silvennoinen as the band's new bass player. Omnium Gatherum comments:

"We're glad to finally make it official and announce that OG is a real 6-piece troop again - we welcome Erkki Silvennoinen as a new bass player to Omnium Gatherum. Erkki is a die-hard pro dude with a warm nice attitude, just the way we like it, and we know him well from sharing same stages than us since almost ten years ago. He used to play in Amoral as well as in Finnish Idols winner Ari Koivunen's band back in the day. At the moment he is also playing in awesome brutal tech death metal band De Lirium's Order."

Here's what Erkki has to say about his new vocation: "I'm very excited to join Omnium Gatherum. I already know most of the guys from way back when I was playing warm-up gigs for them. I have seen them grow and evolve into the tight unit they are today and hire Jukka as their front-man, who also happens to be one of my best friends. It's an honor to get to play with such talented musicians. The previous bass players have left some big shoes to fill... I hope they fit."

The currently untitled follow-up to Omnium Gatherum's "New World Shadows" is set to be released on February 25th, 2013 in Europe and February 26th, 2013 in North America.
