WINTERSUN – Asim talks about playing guitar, joining the band and more


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.

Check it out here:

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!”
