Season of Mist Records reported that guitarist/vocalist Trondr Nefas of the Norwegian black metal band Urgehal has died suddenly at the age of 35. No news as to the cause of death was released as of yet. In a post on the label's Facebook page, it was stated: "We are deeply sorry to announce that URGEHAL guitarist/vocalist Trondr Nefas just passed away. More news and official statement to follow soon. RIP."
Nefas also played with Beastcraft (as Alastor Nefas), Bloodsworn, Endezzm, In Lingua Mortua, Vulture Lord, Angst Skvadron (As T.B.) and Kvist. Ironically, the last release from Urgehal was the 7" "Death Is Complete" released in January 2011 through Folter Records.
Nefas also provided a guest solo for Italian black metal band So Much For Nothing's track "My Previous," which was released on My Kingdom Music earlier this year. Owner and general manager of My Kingdom Music, Francesco Palumbo, has these comments on the passing of Nefas:
"It's a sad day for many Black souls because Trondr Nefas's death. A few one knows him as a great man, a lot of you knows him for his great talent and music in URGEHAL, BEASTCRAFT and other great acts and some of you have listened to his great musical talent because he played a great guitar solo in the song 'My Precious' available in the SO MUCH FOR NOTHING album "Livsgnist" released by my label. That's the personal reason I want to show with this my being close to his family, girlfriend, his fellow musicians in Urgehal, Angst Skvadron and Beastcraft and of course to Erik and Jarle from 'my' SO MUCH FOR NOTHING! Rest in peace!!!"
More news on the death is expected shortly. More...
So Much For Nothing, the band formed in 2007 by Sarkom front man Erik Unsgaard, has previewed a second track from the forthcoming album “Livsgnist," which is set for release on the 16th of January via My Kingdom Music in both CD and LP version.
The track, titled “Suffer in Silence,” sees several guest artists joining the band’s two-man line up, with Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth providing additional lyrics and vocals, Pantheon I’s Live Julianne Kostøl on the cello, Trollfest’s Martin Storm-Olsen on acoustic guitar, and Ingvild Sareeta Kaare, formerly of Ram-Zet on violin. “Suffer in Silence” can be heard on the band’s MySpace page or Facebook profile.
Aside from Unsgaard himself on guitars and vocals, the nucleus of the band includes Urgehal drummer Uruz who joined the band in 2009 when, having written eight songs, Unsgaard realised that he was ready to take the first steps to expand the band from what was initially a solo project. Drawing inspiration from the general decadence that has seeped into society over the years, So Much For Nothing's sound is a mix of brooding black metal and dark melodies, which together perfectly creates the decadent atmosphere that Unsgaard seeks to express through his music.
