Shade Empire Splits With Guitarist Janne Niiranen

Shade Empire has checked in with the following announcement about parting ways with guitarist Janne Niiranen:

"As many of you may have noticed one is missing out. A few months after we'd record an Omega Arcane, Janne announced that he has other things in his life where he wants to focus on instead of guitar wanking.

"We have grown up together and played together 14 years so the case was not easy to deal with and still isn't. We lost a member of the band, but we did not lose a friend. Friendship will remain forever! After four great albums, after many great gigs and paths we respect you, Janne Niiranen, and we wish you all the best for the future. Yours: Savolainen, Räsänen, Sirkkiä, Mantere, Harju.

"On the other hand we have also some good news to share with you. We have found a good person and great guitarist for the band. Aapeli Kivimäki from Soulfallen will join the SE roster. We are very excited of this and after first booze sessions Aapeli seems to be like one of us. So let's welcome him warmly on future gigs! Cheers!"

The "Omega Arcane" album is due out May 3rd, 2013 and has the following track listing:

1. Ruins
2. Dawnless Days
3. Until No Life Breeds
4. Ash Statues
5. Disembodiment
