Reign of Erebus Frontman Steps Down

British Black metallers Reign of Erebus have posted the following:

After 8 years of fronting England's Reign of Erebus, founder member Cthonian has stepped down. The remaining members - Crucem, Xael and Ewchymlaen - support and understand his choice entirely. His decision comes during the final stages of preparing new material to record, in the interest of seeking a new label since the band left Blackend/PHD last September. Ewchymlaen (guitars) will perform the vocals for this forthcoming demo. Cthonian may yet carry on with music, possibly with a new project, but he believes he has done all he could for Reign of Erebus and his decision allows the band to find a vocalist more appropriate to the new material.

Crucem: "this hasn't come as much of a surprise to us, far too many musical differences were becoming more and more apparent, especially considering the new material that we are due to record, and we were soon to approach him about his future with the band. I respect his choice, there's no ill feeling whatsoever and we relish the thought of bringing in a new vocalist. However, we will not be looking for a direct carbon copy replacement. We think it is time to expand creatively with the vocals, something more diverse, but certainly very harsh, dark and twisted."
