Swedish metal band Carnal Forge has announced the departure of guitarist Jari Kuusisto in addition to recently replaced vocalist Jens C. Mortensen. According to the group, "We are sorry not to have the guys on board anymore, and we wish them all the best for the future. We want to thank them for all their work and efforts in the band and all the crazy times we've shared through the years."

Kuusisto has issued the following statement:

"It's with great sadness I must inform you all that I have decided to leave CF. I just feel that my time in CF has come to an end, and I really haven't anything more to offer to the band. It’s been great working with the band over these 10 years and I wish the guys the best of luck in the future (Because they deserve it). For those of you that wonder. I will continue with my music carrier but with my other band This Human Design. So hopefully I will see you all again in a near future. Thank you all for the endless support. See you soon."

Meanwhile, Mortensen also released a statement:

"It is with sadness in my heart I tell you that my time as the voice of CF is over. Long story short; I found myself in a situtation where I had to choose 'tween being the singer of CF and my job/personal life and I chose the latter. I hope you'll all understand that this wasn't an easy desicion for me. I'd like to thank all the people that supported our efforts during my 3+ years in CF and give a big shout-out to all the bands/crews/bartenders that put up with our shit, Cheers! Also, BIG thanks and a heartfelt goodspeed to the girls in CF who are now embarking on a new adventure... You'll get nothing but phat respect and love from me since I'll always consider you my brothers in arms."

The two members has subsequently been replaced by guitarist Dino Medanhodzic (Soulbreach) and singer Peter Tuthill (ex-Construcdead). The band elaborates:

"We have been rehearsing for the last month and the transition has gone real smooth, and we are ready to hit the stage again. The first show with the new line up will be in Sala, Sweden on the 23rd of February at Rockland."

An audition recording featuring vocals from Tuthill can be heard here (MP3).
