Enochian Crescent Parts Ways With Vocalist

Finnish black metal act Enochian Crescent has checked in with the following announcement about parting way's with vocalist Wrath:

"'All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.' - Anatole France

"After all the twists and turns, ups and downs that we have lived through as years rolled by I never thought that there would be a day when Wrath and I put our musical partnership to a shelf. The decision was a moment of both great sadness and great relief. However, this was something that had to be done at this stage to ensure the continued productive musical careers of both parties. I can assure you all that both Wrath with Black Dawn and I with the remaining members of Enochian Crescent shall outpour new music with newfound vigour and intensity.

"When we founded Enochian Crescent in 1995, Wrath and I made a pact that should either quit the band we would put the name to rest also. As a man of my words I shall honour this agreement. The remaining members (Bolton - drums, Tunturituuli - bass, Vilhelm - guitar, and Viktor - guitar, vocals) shall continue the musical legacy of Enochian Crescent and you will be hearing songs from the old albums in the live-set. We are recruiting a new lead vocalist, whose name shall be announced in the future, to complete the band and to finish up the new full-length album. The already booked festival gigs shall be played under the name Enochian Crescent alongside with other contractual responsibilities.

"The remaining band members want to wish Wrath all the best in the future and I personally want to thank my long standing Omega Comrade and friend for all these years. He is a man with unique vocal talent and personality to match in this world of mediocrity.

"The new album is already recorded music wise and we shall bellow in the rest of the vocals in late August or early September, so you can expect a late 2012 or early 2013 release through Spinefarm Records. The new material pushes the borders of Enochian Crescent's musical realm further in every direction and to be honest I just cannot get enough of the new songs.

"Even though these news might shock and upset some, worry not; it was all for the best. And you may (if you will) enjoy both the voice of Wrath and the music of Enochian Crescent in near future. In LVX et NOX."
