Thunderstoners! We’re one step closer to solving the mystery of the THUNDERSTONE line-up!
But first: We want to thank everyone who submitted their auditions to us. We can honestly say that it would have been an honour to work with any of you. Keep up the good work and stay metal!
Second: We do apologise for taking much longer than we anticipated. If you listened to all the submissions carefully—like we did, dozens of times—you’ll know how difficult the choice was.
Yet, a choice has been made. We are proud to announce that we have asked three people to come and jam with us live so that we can make the final decision. We want to find a person who is not only a great drummer but also a filthy drunk bastard—erm, nice person—like the rest of us. The three people are, in alphabetical order: TONI PAANANEN, ATTE PALOKANGAS, and TUOMAS VUORIO.
Congrats to the three and thank you all for your patience. The live auditions will be held at the end of the month and we hope to have a decision some time in the beginning of February. STAY TUNED AND SPREAD THE WORD!
Nino, Pasi, Titus & Jukka
