Ex-Nightwish Singer Anette Olzon In New Band With Sonata Arctica Star


(Prog) Former Nightwish vocalist Anette Olzon has teamed up with ex Sonata Arctica man Jani Liimatainen in a new project. The pair haven't yet revealed the name of the project, but they will release an album via Frontiers Music Srl in 2017.

Olzon says: "I am so looking forward to sing on an album with Jani and to finally work with Frontiers. I believe it will be a perfect match and I am really happy that Jani and Frontiers asked me to do this with them."

Olzon sang on Nightwish albums Dark Passion Play and Imaginaerum and left the band in 2012, later claiming she had been fired because she had fallen pregnant.

As well as his work with Sonata Arctica, producer, songwriter and guitarist Liimatainen is a member of Cain's Offering alongside Stratovarius singer Timo Kotipelto. Read more here.
