Finnish/Swedish power metallers THAUROROD entered Rockstar Productions studio in the band’s hometown of Hyvinkää, Finland on November 29 to begin recording their sophomore album for an early 2013 release.
The third in a series of webisodes featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the studio can be seen below.
THAUROROD recently announced the addition of Swedish singer Andi Kravljaca (SILENT CALL, SEVENTH WONDER) to the group’s ranks.
Commented the band: “We made two shows with Andi in Finland warming up for WINTERSUN and everything felt amazing and we had so much fun together! He easily impressed the band and the audiences with his energetic performances on both shows… what a crazy dude on stage!”
THAUROROD parted ways with Italian singer Michele Luppi in July. They attributed the split to the fact that Luppi “[didn't] have enough time for THAUROROD” and the group’s desire to find someone who was “more motivated [and] who share[d] the same passion and hunger to go on with THAUROROD as the rest of the band.”
THAUROROD‘s debut album, “Upon Haunted Battlefields”, came out in Europe on September 24, 2010 via NoiseArt Records and Rock The Nation.
Within the last month, melodic metal warriors THAUROROD have been looking for a new singer. Now the search is over and the band announce new singer, Andi Kravljaca.
Watch a presentation video below:
Here’s what the band says about their new singer: “As you might know it hasn’t been too easy for us with the previous vocalists. Facing a vocalist change is never easy and facing a lot of them is just something really hard for a band. We went through a lot of vocalist candidates and wanted to pick a guy who can really kill on stage and who is reliable and we can count on him to deliver his 110% input now and always. We wanted to find a guy who is not only our new vocalist but also our very last!
We are so relieved to be able to announce our new vocalist finally! Ladies and gentlemen, the new frontman of Thaurorod is Andi Kravljaca! We made two shows with Andi in Finland warming up for WINTERSUN and everything felt amazing and we had so much fun together! He easily impressed the band and the audiences with his energetic performances on both shows… what a crazy dude on stage!”
Thaurorod will release a new album in 2013 – more info soon.
