So, this is sort of huge news.
The identity of Batman has been revealed and it’s guitarist Joonas “Jope” Koto. The evidence is right there in front of you — Batman playing the guitar. Photographic evidence, folks.
On top of that, Koto has joined Finnish melodic death metallers Omnium Gatherum.
“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,” said the band in a statement. “[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.”
They band’s from Finland, so pardon the broken English. I can’t believe Batman lives in Finland.
“After two years as a session guitarist, the guys finally asked me to join Omnium Gatherum and I didn’t hesitate one second,” Batman said. “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.”
