Ravenhelm Decides To Call It Quits

Torr "Munnin" Bunnell of one man black metal act Ravenhelm, which was featured in an earlier edition of our "Unearthing the Metal Underground" column, has issued the following update about the project coming to an end:

"As of late, I have been in a part of my life were I find that I no longer need Ravenhelm. The ideologies behind the music, I will always cherish as a part of who I am. However, I do not want to have this project stagnate and be hampered by mistakes I have done in the past that may or may not smeared its name. I don't want to be one of those projects/bands that just does the same thing year in and year out. Further more, I am bringing an end to Ravenhelm. Musically I just no longer feel it, I ran its course and nothing more can really be said or done.

"The latest album now out, 'Runemal' will be the last publicly released album from me, under the Ravenhelm name. You can order the last album through Ziekte Records. Ravenhelm was my gateway project into full time recording. Before this project, I went into long hiatuses without bands or lacking the ability to put music together. I made my fair share of bad choices with Ravenhelm, which I shall not continue again with my future projects. There might be a good dose of Ravenhelm influences in my future musical endeavors, but beyond that the project known as 'Ravenhelm' will be put to an end.

"I also feel that I am wasting my time doing this form of music at this moment, as I seem to not have pushed myself fully as a musician. There are great black metal hordes out there, and as Malefic of Xasthur put it, Black Metal has plenty of bands, the genre will be fine by loosing one. There was not much of an interest in my project and I am wasting my time trying to promote it. If any future recordings happen under the 'Ravenhelm' name, I will NOT release it to the public. I will privately release it to a handful of allies that were either a part of the project, friends, and supporters of it.

"Everyone else, can go fuck off. Thanks for nothing. There will be no peaceful goodbye. Fuck you, thanks for allowing the underground to die and bring bands to their end. Go kill yourselves you fake ass poseurs."

typical 'bubbling banale à la loser'. the trivial round since the whole black metal thing became 'the only true art'. heard that so many times so it makes me sick. using his own croaking: 'go kill yourself you fake a$$ poseur!' if you're not needed by the crowd it doesn't mean 'allowing the underground to die'. get a life and a day job, you untalented prick! impotent creativity is not the end of the world, for everyone else around you especially.
"I will privately release it to a handful of allies that were either a part of the project, friends, and supporters of it." hope your relatives will find your new stuff amusing enough to cheer you up a bit. pathetic sore loser.
"Everyone else, can go f*** off." if you weren't craving for attention you'd die without our mention.
NOTE TO A MODERATOR: quote: 'Personal attacks and/or excessive profanity will not be tolerated and such comments will be removed.' moderate "Munnin" first then...
