Author Hernan Osuna - 13.4.2023

Finnish metal band Warmen has announced their complete line-up for 2023 and introduced their new singer: Petri Lindroos (Ensiferum).

The group also announced a record deal with Reaper Entertainment and an upcoming studio album last year. Back in March 2023, at the time of the re-release of “First Of The Five Elements”, it was announced that Seppo Tarvainen would be replacing Mirka Rantala on drums. Now, Petri Lindroos has also joined the band.

Warmen states: “Due to the recent more aggressive style in songwriting, we were faced with the question of who should be the vocalist for the new album. After much consideration, we contacted Petri, as Janne has known him forever and we thought he would be a perfect fit. We are super excited to announce Petri as the lead singer for our upcoming album. We also think Petri would be perfect for a live show, so stay tuned for more news about the new album!

Petri Lindroos adds: “The Wirman brothers sent me a message asking if I would be interested in singing for their new album, and I said of course I am. It sounds like a very cool thing to do and also very metal.

has been a kind of solo project of Janne “Warman” Wirman for many years, or a musical balance to his main band at that time. When the keyboardist wasn’t touring the world with Children Of Bodom, he was regularly recording albums with his brother Antti Wirman (guitar), Jyri Helko (bass), Mirka Rantanen (drums, Kotipelto, ex-Hevisaurus), and various session singers. After the much too early end of Children Of Bodom and the tragic death of Alexi Laiho, Janne initially fell into a deep black hole and wasn’t sure if he ever wanted to make music again. Finally, his environment helped.
