CLAWFINGER Guitarist Quits The Music Business

Longtime CLAWFINGER guitarist Erlend Ottem has left the band in order to pursue a career as a software specialist. "It has been a tough decision for me, but I have decided to settle down and focus on other directions such as family life and my profession," he said in a statement. "I will never forget the precious experience made as a bandmember of CLAWFINGER and wish the guys only the best for the forthcoming decade".

CLAWFINGER's Bård Torstensen will handle all guitar duties for the band going forward. The Swedish rap-metal group's latest album, "Zeros & Heros", came out at the end of May.
