Warmen, the project featuring Janne Wirman (ex-Children Of Bodom) and his brother Antti Wirman, have signed a new deal with Reaper Entertainment. The band will be reissuing their 2014 album, “First Of The Five Elements,” in March 2023 before releasing a new record later that year.
“After the abrupt ending of Children Of Bodom, I wasn’t sure if I’ll ever make music again. We did a couple of song writing sessions last year with my brother and Jyri and I realized that I still have a lot of desire for music and together we wrote an album of exciting new stuff. We teamed up with Flori and Greg from the Reaper Entertainment, as I had worked with them before with great results, and knew they understood my past with bodom and where we wanted to go next with Warmen.”
Reaper Entertainment’s Flori added:
“After all, it’s an open secret that our company name was a reference or tribute to Children Of Bodom. Greg and I were big fans and attended many of the band’s concerts together. In the process, we developed a great friendship with the band — but especially with Janne. When we saw on Facebook that Janne and Antti were working on new Warmen songs, we just had to offer them our help. It’s a great honor for us that Janne accepted immediately and now we can eagerly wait for the new album.”
