It’s been a rough few months for Finland’s heavy metal act Burning Point; drummer Jussi Ontero, bassist Sami Nyman, and vocalist Nitte Valo all parted ways with the band, leaving them shortmanned, to say the least.
However, their fire is far from being extinguished. With a new album confirmed to be in the works, the band recently announced that their new drummer is Toumas Jaatinen, who also plays in Dark Flood. According to Burning Point’s Facebook page, the drums tracks have all been recorded for the upcoming album, so we can likely expect a release date in the coming months.
On top of these announcements, the band have also finally unveiled their new vocalist: Luca Sturniolo. Hailing from Italy, he has played for various bands on numerous instruments, such as bass and vocals. He has also released one album, entitled The Dawn, under his own solo project.
This new lineup might be exactly what the band needed to revitalize both themselves and their fans. There’s no shortage of diverse skills to work with, so I’m hopeful that the coming album will be more their most kickass record yet.
