MORGANA LEFAY 'Taking A Break'

Bassist Fredrik "Lubbe" Lundberg of the Swedish power metal band MORGANA LEFAY has released the following statement:

"Yes, we're taking a break at the moment. No one has left the band, so that's not the problem. We're still friends, so that's not the problem. We have several offers from record labels, so that's not the problem.

"So what the hell is the problem?! Well, I can't give you any specific reason, except that we felt like it. And if that's the way you feel, that's what you need to do.

"I can't say how long this break will last, but I don't think that this is the end of MORGANA LEFAY.

"During this break from MORGANA LEFAY, we're all keeping busy with other things. I have a project band with Per [Ryberg] (Studio Soundcreation), Tony [Eriksson, guitar] is working on new songs at home. Peter [Grehn, guitar] is working on songs for his new project. Pelle [Åkerlind, drums] is playing with all of his other bands and Charles [Rytkönen, vocals] is doing the INMORIA thing as well as rehearsing for 'Körslaget' [Swedish TV show described as a new 'Clash of the Choirs' program]. So all you Swedes make sure you vote for the Bollnäs choir. The first live TV show is on TV4 on the December 26."

MORGANA LEFAY's video for the song "Delusions" can be viewed below. The track comes off the group's latest album, "Aberrations of the Mind", which came out in March 2007 via Black Mark. The clip was directed by NOCTURNAL RITES' drummer Owe Lingvall of Village Road Films.

According to a press release, "Aberrations of the Mind" contains "a new level of aggression while still maintaining the traditional MORGANA LEFAY sound." The album also features the debut of the band's new skinbasher, Pelle Åkerlind (BLOODBOUND, LEDNOTE).
