Hoarfrost Issues Band Activity Update

Canadian metallers Hoarfrost have checked in with the following update about upcoming activity after parting ways with their guitarist:

"Hails to the Frost Legion! These past six weeks have been a flurry of preparations and adaptations. Hoarfrost began in a dimly-lit basement a little over two and a half years ago, and after some early line-up changes, transformed into the quintet which have played 19 shows over the past 18 months together. It's been a journey so far.

"Brett was an integral part to that formula, and brought in much of (or most of) the original frameworks for our songs 'Rise ov Thor', 'Under the Bloody Banner', 'Tenebrous Entombment', 'In the Year ov Their Lord 1453' and others. His technical wizardry helped us record our EP The Cold Plains and his computer know-how has helped us with this MySpace page, many show posters and the album lay-out. In short, he's been as great of a band member as we ever could have asked for.

"As someone once said (and not to overuse a cliché), that all good things must come to an end, and thus with Brett departing, Hoarfrost's most recent era comes to a close. The last trio of shows have been an absolute tribute to what our vision has been for this band, with great performances, spectacular crowd interaction and some awesome bands to share the stage with. To everyone who has helped our experiences these past shows be so great: thank you.

"We as a band can only look forward to the future, and not languish in the past, however. It has been a great time with Brett, but we parted ways because of a divergence of vision for the band. We wish him luck and success with his project Kuldakaust (and are looking forward to the eventual Hoarfrost/Kuldakaust gig) but ultimately our responsibilities lie with Hoarfrost. It's time to worry about 'us'.

"And so the Great Guitarist Search officially begins. We are still asking interested parties to contact us regarding our open guitarist position. Below is everything you need to know. Thanks again to everyone who've lent a helping hand along the way. We'll see you at a gig soon, eh!"
