Swedish "Viking metallers" THYRFING have issued the following update:

"After a decade in the band, both Thomas Väänänen [vocals] and Henrik Svegsjö [guitar] have decided to leave THYRFING. They have informed us that they lack the motivation needed for another album. We have split ways on good terms, and would like to thank them for all these great years. With this being said, we hereby welcome Jens Rydén to the band as new vocalist. Jens is best known as founding member and ex-vocalist of NAGLFAR and recently also for his one-man army PROFUNDI. We all feel very enthusiastic about bringing new blood into the band and it will be very interesting to write and compile the next THYRFING album together. For the time being we will go on with one guitar player, and time will tell what happens to the second guitar position…"

THYRFING's fifth album, "Farsotstider" (in English: "Times of Plague"), was released in November 2005 via Regain Records. The follow-up to 2002's "Vansinnesvisor" (Hammerheart Records) was recorded at EMI Studio in Stockholm with producer Henrik Edenhed (LAMBRETTA, THE SOUNDS).
