So, another band OMG. Well, just to give you a bit of an insight. At some point a year or two ago
Mr.Vapola the mainman from Winterborn asked me to play keyboards on their 3rd album, which I was happy to do. They found themselves in a situation where their previous keyboard player Jukka Hänninen had left the band. Needless to say, since Kokkola (where they/we hail from) is a small town and we’re all know each other from before.
Some trivia: Pasi (Kauppinen) is playing bass in Winterborn (I also work with him in Sonata,Silent Voices, Mental Care Foundation & Klingenberg Syndrome). Antti Hokkala one of the guitarists in the band as well as Lauri Bexar the drummer both play in Mental Care Foundation. Teemu Koskela the singer now sings in Silent Voices as well. So you can see, it can be a bit confusing but that’s how it is when there’s lots of music coming out and you’re too lazy to get to know new people ;-)
In addition, Winterborn opened for Sonata on our European Tour some years back.
Anyways, here is the first single of the album along with the video. Appeareantly there will be more in April….and no it’s not me playing the piano in the video, Pasi filled in since I was not available at the time….shhh…it’s a secret.
