Finnish melodic death metallers Omnium Gatherum announced that guitarist Joonas “Jope” Koto (Malpractice, ex-To/Die/For, ex-Hateframe) now are a full member of the band.
The band commented on the addition:
“Omnium Gatherum is a twin-guitar squad again and what’s even better is that now we have Jackson guitar tour de force on both sides of the stage! Joonas has been playing already a big bunch of gigs with Omnium Gatherum as session live member as the previous guitarist Harri Pikka left the band over a year ago, and Jope was even filling up Harri in some gigs even before we separated ways.”

“Jope has been Markus Vanhala’s partner in crime in a progressive metal band, Malpractice, for many years by now, so he was the first, the most natural and the only candidate for the job for us and gladly we got him on board!”
Joonas Koto added:
“After two years as a session guitarist, the guys finally asked me to join Omnium Gatherum and I didn’t hesitate one second! From the get-go I have felt like part of a family. The guys are very great as persons and professional as musicians. I’m very happy and proud to be a part of such a great band of brothers.”
