Finnish melodic metal band, Burning Point, recruited a new singer and a new keyboardist. “2009 when we parted ways with Pasi (Hiltula), we decided we would continue without an “official” player in the band and use a “hired gun” in the gigs. Jarkko (Väisänen) was our first choice and he has been with us for a while now. He is a solid player and really cool guy to be with. We are very happy that he decided to join BP ranks as an official keyboardist”, band states.
Pete also decided to step down from the lead-vocalist position and continue as a guitarist. “Well, it has been a one helluva ride for 15 years to handle both, vocals and guitar, but now we thought it was time to try something totally new. I love playing and singing live, I love to be on the spotlight…but also I want the band to be in constant motion and moving forward”, says Pete. “Nitte is perfect choice as a new frontma…oh woman : ), very powerful voice and an awesome stage performer!”
“These guys are awesome and the music, just great! I love all the Burning Point songs! I’ve been away from the world of heavy metal for a while now, but now with these guys, I am back! I’m very excited and anxious to start recording the new stuff and just waiting to be on stage with Burning Point”, Nitte explains.
Band will start recording the new album within two weeks and the working title is “Polttopiste”. More news coming very soon, stay fired up!
