MEMOIRA Parts Ways With Guitarist
Finnish female-fronted metal band MEMOIRA has issued the following update:
"Unfortunately, we have to announce the departure of our guitarist Jani Haanpää. We wish Jani all the best in his future endeavours. Honkajoki [show on November 29] will be his going-away party. And hopefully we see you guys there having a great time and appreciate the last show with Jani on board. After Honkajoki, we are having a creative break during which we make new material and find a new solo guitarist!"
MEMOIRA's self-titled debut album was released in August via Nightmare Records.
The band's sound was previously described by the label as "epic melancholic metal that has progressive and gothic orchestral parts." According to Nightmare, MEMOIRA carries on "in the fashon of bands such as NIGHTWISH, EPICA, KAMELOT, WITHIN TEMPTATION, EVANESCENCE and LACUNA COIL."
MEMOIRA's video for the song "Liberation" can be viewed below.
