Originally planned as a sideproject – Janne Wirman leaves his step back from music behind and returns full throttle with his band WARMEN, founded back in the year 2000. The former Children-Of-Bodom (COB) keyboardist had largely retired from the music business after the breakup of the band and the passing of his longtime friend and companion, Alexi Laiho, to have more time for family and private life.
But the longing to make music drew him and his brother Antti back to the forests of Finland, where they spent countless days jamming in one of the traditional Finnish cabins.
Some first new songs where easily composed with tremendous joy and the idea to bring the old band of the two brothers back to life was born: WARMEN is back!
Purely out of the desire to make music and without economic pressure, more and more songs were created and with new gathered energy the creative fire began to burn again. As a small foretaste, Reaper Entertainment now releases the last WARMEN album “First Of The Five Elements” for the first time on CD in March 2023. The album was already released digitally in 2014 and produced on CD as part of a crowdfunding campaign for a small number of supporters.
