Guitarist Tchort has announced his departure from the Norwegian black metal band CARPATHIAN FOREST. He says in a statement, "It's been more than 10 years with perversion and provocation and I have seen, heard and done shit I didn't even know existed and the past decade has been like a rollercoaster from hell! And since I got too addicted to this shit, I can also announce that I am starting a brand new band and I can't wait to see unexplored depths of hell with the new stuff. I am confident that I will find a killer lineup and be back to fuck you up! My deepest respect and grattitude goes to Nattefrost for letting me into his personal hell and keeping me there for a decade!"

CARPATHIAN FOREST performed at this year's Inferno festival, which was held April 8-11, 2009 in Oslo. Fan-filmed video footage of the cocnert can be viewed below.

The band is busy writing the follow-up album to "Fuck You All!!!!" and is currently negotiating with various record labels.

"Fuck You All!!!!" entered the Norwegian album chart at position No. 25. The band has since ended its collaboration with France's Season of Mist Records.
