Finnish saatto metal band Saattue has a new drummer. M. Ahlstén decided to leave the group after being a member of Saattue for five years and being responsible for recording drums for both of the band’s albums, Jäähyvästi (2006) and Vuoroveri (2009). The new drummer is S. Köykkä, formerly a member of Finnish funeral doom metal band Colosseum. Saattue gives a big thank you to Mikael and welcomes Sameli in.
Saattue’s second album Vuoroveri was released in November 2009 on Spikefarm Records. The album includes 8 tracks of doomy and multidimensional saatto metal.
Saattue writes its lyrics in Finnish and calls its music saatto metal. Saatto, as well as Saattue, means procession in Finnish.
