Catamenia main-man Riku Hopeakoski has announced the following huge line-up changes:

"I'm sad to inform you all about huge and unfortunate line-up changes in the band. Ari Nissilä (vocals/guitar), Toni Kansanoja (bass), Kari Vähäkuopus (clean vocals) and Mikko Nevanlahti (drums) decided to part ways with Catamenia because of their project bands, businesses, lack of inspiration and time, personal issues and etc.

I had a great time with you and hope nothing but the best for you. We'll always be true friends, no question about it! You've been my family for years and you will always be part of it, now and in future! There are no words to describe, but only: Thousands of sincere thanks from the bottom of my heart, guys - it was a damn awesome journey with great unforgettable memories! THANK YOU!!!

But now some happier news. The first new attachment for the band is our ex-bassist Mikko Hepo-Oja. He was our bassist during Winternight Tragedies-era. Also two new members join the band - drummer Tony Qvick (ex-Agonizer) and guitarist Sauli Jauhiainen (Ultimatium). Also the new vocalist will be informed quite soon. So, all in all: We're back in business!"

Dude...

Someone tells me that this will be good to band. No more shitty clean vocals, and also Riku commented on FB that tehy will return to the old stuff. So I have some hopes for this one. Even if they bring those keyboards back... But anyway, they cant go worse than they are now.

...alright

Saddest day EVER. What the hell are you thinking guys! This is the end of Catamenia as we know it. One of the best vocalists I've ever heard... I'm so fucking dissapointed. FUCK FUCK FUCK SHIT CRAP PERIOD.
Lack of inspiration? It's a helluva BULLSHIT. Last 3 albums were genius and you're saying that you have lack of inspiration? LOL.

Goodbye Catamenia. ;(

My thoughts exactly.

The band was going on a shitty direction. Hope this brings back the Eternal Winter's Prophecy vibe again.

Add me to the list. If it means the end of the shitty direction they took on the last two albums and a return to the old stuff, it's among the best news this year. The actual direction lead nowhere, anyway.

Heavy, hopefully they can recover.
bluegreengod - 05.10.2010 at 02:56  
This is really too bad. It will be interesting to see where they go with this. Catamenia has been a badass band all along, but VIII was a really great album and Cavalcade is just fucking awesome. Hopefully they will continue with that same direction, although it's doubtful.
MétalNoir - 05.10.2010 at 05:07  
Nice news, this band sucked so bad lately. Maybe it won't help in any way, but at least there's some hope.
Ellrohir - 05.10.2010 at 09:03  
So almost completely new band...not sure if that is good
Umideath - 05.10.2010 at 11:58  
Goodbye ....

Ronny Thorsen pulled it off with Trail of Tears so perhaps they can make a fist with their next album.
Lovecraft - 05.10.2010 at 15:35  
Sweet!
JD - 05.10.2010 at 17:54  
Another band goes down.
Jon - 05.10.2010 at 18:01  
I think what will happen is they will get a female lead singer and do a Kate Bush cover.
Or perhaps a song with Fatman Scoop repeatedly bawling "FAHMAN THCOOP!!1"
Those are the two options.

You're probably the only persons on earth to think like that. All the others believe it can't go any worse than it was on the last two albums.
