Ensiferum Announce Lineup Change

(TeamRock Radio) Ensiferum keyboard player Emmi Silvennoinen has left the band and been replaced by Netta Skog. The Finnish folk metal outfit announced the change in a Facebook post, with Silvennoinen saying she is stepping down for family reasons.

Electric accordion player Skog is now onboard as a permanent member after a year as a touring musician. Silvennoinen says: "Many of you have probably noticed that during the last year I have missed lots of gigs and now it's time to put an end to all rumors.

"For family reasons, I have to step aside from Ensiferum. It's been an amazing nine years. I have learned and seen so much all over the world. This decision was not made lightly.

"But every cloud has its silver lining and I couldn't be any happier that my dear friend Netta will take my place in the band." Read more here.
