Vocalist Kvohst of Norway's DØDHEIMSGARD (DHG) has issued the following statement:"After a pretty tough month and some deep contemplation, I have decided to call it a day and check out of the DØDHEIMSGARD asylum. The reasons for my departure are personal and I'd like them to stay that way. My work in DHG and on 'Supervillain Outcast' has been a labour of love but, unfortunately, love, as Bukowski once said, can often be like trying to carry a full garbage can on your back over a rushing river of piss. I can only thank the rest of the band, especially Vicotnik, and the fans, for their total support and dedication and for some of the best years of my life. As a fan of the band since I was young, I will continue to support DHG and I hope that you will do the same." "Supervillain Outcast" was released last April via Moonfog/The End Records. The CD was the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed 1999 release "666 International", a sonically-charged rollercoaster ride of avant-garde chaos and intense black metal drive and atmosphere. The album, which ended up on many critics' Top 10 lists, helped inject the black metal music scene with something unique and groundbreaking the year of its release.
