"Dirge Eternal is sad to announce that we are parting our ways with our singer Jani. There has been a lot going on in the band lately and everyone agrees that taking this band to the next level is not possible with the current line-up.

"Dirge Eternal thanks Jani for all the great times together and wishes luck in all the future endeavors. You will find the way, just stay at it!"
