"Finnish metal band Norther parts ways with long time singer/guitarist Petri Lindroos. Norther was forced to let Petri go to be able to continue. Petri´s full time engagement in Ensiferum increasingly prevented Norther from functioning as an active band.

Petri wishes Norther all the best for the future. Current Norther crew, Kristian, Jukka, Tuomas and Heikki, wants to thank Petri for all these great years together and wishes him the best of luck with Ensiferum.

Norther was founded in 2000 and has so far released five full length albums, 2 EPs, a DVD, four singles and a movie soundtrack for a Finnish film V2. During the years Norther has done extensive touring with bands like Dimmu Borgir, Hypocrisy, Turisas, Finntroll etc. Norther is currently signed to Century Media Records (Europe and USA) and Marquee Avalon (Japan).

Additional information concerning the recruitment of a new singer will be provided soon.

I can understand this since he was busy with Ensiferum, but this sucks.

I am from the US and obviously they have never toured here so I was hoping that one day I would finally see them. I still might but it won't be the same without Petri.

I thought "N" sucked but I didn't really care about new albums anymore. I just wanted to see them live one time with Petri. Guess that's not gonna happen anymore. :(

Ensiferum are better anyway.

Ensiferum are better anyway.

This seems pretty irrelevant.

This seems pretty irrelevant.

I'm just saying, I think he's better off now, probably.

I was pissed that I missed them when I toured with Cryptopsy, hopefully the new singer can do a good job.
