Gloryhammer Vocalist Thomas Winkler Splits With Emerald

Thomas Winkler (Gloryhammer) has split with Swiss metal act Emerald. In a statement on Winkler's Facebook Page, he reported: "To focus on Gloryhammer and my job as a notary public I have decided to leave the Swiss Heavy Metal act Emerald. I will perform all previously confirmed gigs with the band until the end of the year and hope that this band carries on -- with a new singer."

The band is accepting submissions for the open vocalist position via the following announcement:

"Thomas L. Winkler decided to leave Emerald. He will still perform all previously confirmed gigs with us. After that he wants to mainly concentrate on his new job. We wish him good luck with that!

"In the meantime we're looking for a talented and motivated new singer (male or female).

"Do you got a powerful voice and want to take our sound to a new level? Would you like to sing in a well-rehearsed band with a record deal and an international booking agency? Or do you know anyone who would fit the profile?

"PM us on Facebook or email to: info@emerald.ch."

Emerald's latest release was "Unleashed," issued last year via Pure Steel Records. Winkler was with the band since 2010, having sung on "Re-Forged" (2010) and the latest.
