MÅNEGARM Parts Ways With Violin Player

Violin player Janne Liljekvist has left the Swedish "Viking metal" act MÅNEGARM "due to lack of motivation."

Commented the remaining members of the group: "It's of course unfortunate after almost 15 years together, but it's also an unsustainable situation if one out of five can't find the motivation and put the effort into the band that is needed to move forward. However, MÅNEGARM will definitely move on as planned and this will have no impact on our music at all. The work with the new album goes on as planned and we can promise you that it will be a killer! The mighty wolf WILL strike again, this time harder than ever before!"

MÅNEGARM last year inked a deal with Napalm Records. The band's new album is scheduled for release at the end of 2012.

MÅNEGARM's most recent CD, "Nattväsen", was released in November 2009 via Regain Records.

"Vetrarmegin" (English translation: Winter Force), the latest video from MÅNEGARM, was shot in a "Viking village" near the band's hometown, Norrtälje, with an "incredible pre-renaissance atmosphere." The clip was helmed by Sweden's Standard Film Team, which has previously worked with DARK FUNERAL, PLECTOR and ZONARIA.
