WINTERSUN has announced Asim Searah as their second guitarist.
Band comments: “We welcome Asim to the band! Asim was born in Pakistan and moved to Finland at the age of 18 to pursue a career in music and has been playing in several bands and projects since then.
“We’ve known him for a long time and we knew he is a great singer, but we didn’t realise how talented and skillful guitar player he is. Asim was actually the first who sent us an audition video, which surprised us very positively. After the video auditions and two rounds of live auditions we realised he was exactly what we were looking for. He is very motivated and passionate with a good heavy metal attitude – a great guitar player and vocalist to improve the live sound of WINTERSUN even further!”
Asim comments: “It’s an honour to be a part of a band that I have looked up to for many years. It’s definitely a dream come true and I’m super excited to share the stage with WINTERSUN!”
You can still buy WINTERSUN‘s “Forest Package” that includes band’s upcoming album The Forest Seasons, as well with remastered first two albums and few other cool perks.
The Forest Seasons is scheduled for release in July 2017 via Nuclear Blast.
