Finnish power metallers THAUROROD have announced the addition of Swedish singer Andi Kravljaca (SILENT CALL, SEVENTH WONDER) to the group's ranks.

Commented the band: "As you might know, it hasn't been too easy for us with the previous vocalists.

"Facing a vocalist change is never easy and facing a lot of them is just something really hard for a band.

"We went through a lot of vocalist candidates and wanted to pick a guy who can really kill on stage and who is reliable and we can count on him to deliver his 110% input now and always. We wanted to find a guy who is not only our new vocalist but also our very last!

"We are so relieved to be able to announce our new vocalist finally!

"We made two shows with Andi in Finland warming up for WINTERSUN and everything felt amazing and we had so much fun together! He easily impressed the band and the audiences with his energetic performances on both shows... what a crazy dude on stage!"

THAUROROD parted ways with Italian singer Michele Luppi in July. They attributed the split to the fact that Luppi "[didn't] have enough time for THAUROROD" and the group's desire to find someone who was "more motivated [and] who share[d] the same passion and hunger to go on with THAUROROD as the rest of the band."

THAUROROD's debut album, "Upon Haunted Battlefields", came out in Europe on September 24, 2010 via NoiseArt Records and Rock The Nation.

The group is currently working on the follow-up effort for a 2013 release.
