Talking about Shining, it's only been a few days since Niklas Kvarforth announced his departure from one of his other bands Den Saakaldte.

That band has now introduced their new vocalist in the person of Øyvind "Maztema" Hægeland (Spiral Architect, ex-Arcturus, ex-Lunaris).

The band released the following statement: "When Niklas decided to leave Den Saakaldte in order to focus to his main band Shining, we knew that it would be damn difficult to find someone capable and charismatic like Niklas is.

We think we did well in finding that person... We are proud to announce that the new vocalist of Den Saakaldte, is no other than Mr. Øyvind Hægeland, known for his amazing work with Spiral Architect, Arcturus, Scariot, etc.

Øyvind has already started focusing on lyrics and different weird ideas he wants to express with Den Saakaldte's music. Vocals for the new album Kapittel II: Faen I Helvete are scheduled to be recorded, autumn 2011 and we are all damn excited about it."

Thats disappointing, I really enjoyed the vocals on the last album. Ive personally never heard anything by this guy, anybody care to offer a more informed opinion?

This is very good. I always liked this man's voice. Yippee!

Øyvind is a great vocalist. Listen to Spiral Architect (which is a shame if you haven't) and Scariot, really good band. His work with Arcturus was only session live work.

Hm. I'm not sure what to make of this... Obviously you don't replace Kvarforth with another Kvarforth (because there's only one voice like that in metal), but Øyvind? Guess I'll have to wait to hear the album to make an informed decision about whether or not he's the right guy (from one fan's perspective anyway).
