In related news, Crestana recently posted a message to MOONSPELL's official forum explaining his departure from the group.
Crestana's statement reads as follows:
"For me, it is a bit sad, writing you this message, after many years of sharing experiences, and most of all, music, with all of you.
"Following these five years of working with MOONSPELL, we have been through a lot of experiences, tours, concerts, recordings and other stuff. Our shared work has reached an end.
"I wouldn't like to point out any specific reason. It was a MOONSPELL decision, and not only mine.
"Life gets to a point that a person needs to grow as a human being and also of course as a professional, in my case, as a musician. We took different ways, musically speaking....
"I would like to thank you guys for the supportive messages, and for the respect you had for me through all these years.
"For the future, I have no plans yet... Moving on with my career, trying to do my best.
"Thanks again for your support and care, wish you guys the best. If you guys ever need anything, my mail is [email protected]"
