Tristania Parts Ways With Guitar Player

Gothic metal band Tristania have parted ways with their guitar player Svein Terje Solvang.

Tristania's male vocalist Østen Bergøy issued an update on the band's MySpace page stating "Putting a last hand on the preparations for WGT (Wave Gotik Treffen festival) and the upcoming tour in Latin America, we learned that Svein Terje had decided to jump the ship. The timing could not be worse, because it was way too late to replace him for the upcoming shows. I am not sure concerning the reasons – I hope for his own sake that they are valid. I love Svein Terje like a brother, but I must admit that this feels like being stabbed in the back. However, we will do the tour with Anders as the only guitarist. Not an ideal situation, but we will make it work."

Tristania went through another line-up change last year, replacing their previous female vocalist Vibeke Stene with Italian singer Mariangela Demurtas.
