The Finnish atmospheric metal band The Man-Eating Tree have recently announced that their drummer Vesa Ranta (ex-Sentenced) has left the band and retired from the music industry. Here’s an extract from the official statement by his band mates:


Unfortunately, we have to inform you that our drummer Vesa Ranta is retiring from his active and long musical career. Vesa was there from the first moments of The Man-Eating Tree, and since that he was an essential part in making TMET as it is today, also as a super talented graphic, and behind many relevant ideas concerning the band. We are eternally thankful for all the moments we shared and experienced, all the laughter and tears. It is not just a band member leaving and going a separate direction, but something way more. All in all, we wish Vesa all the best with his other great pursuits in life and we support him with all our hearts. “

With blood, sweat and tears
Janne, Marco & Antti
