WINTERSUN | ASIM TALKS PLAYING GUITAR, JOINING THE BAND AND MORE!

 

unnamed-16
Last week, Finnish epic metallers WINTERSUN revealed their new second guitarist Asim Searah. Now the band has launched the first part of a video interview in which Asim talks about playing guitar, joining WINTERSUN and more.

Jari Mäenpää commented:
“We’ve known Asim for a long time and we knew that he is a great singer, but we didn’t realise just what a talented and skillful guitar player he is. Asim was actually the first one who sent us an audition video, which surprised us in a very positive way. After the video auditions and two rounds of live auditions we realised he was exactly what we were looking for. He is very motivated and passionate with a good heavy metal attitude – a great guitar player and vocalist to improve the live sound of WINTERSUN even further!”

Asim commented:
“It’s an honour to be a part of a band that I have looked up to for many years. It’s definitely a dream come true and I’m super excited to share the stage with WINTERSUN!”
