Blackened death metal outfit Wolvhammer has lost the band's frontman Ryan Mckern. Wolvhammer is currently on tour, traveling down to play at SXSW in Austin, Texas, tonight at the Free Day Party. The vocalist/guitarist was replaced by vocalist Adam Clemans of Iron Thrones and guitarist Jeff Wilson formerly of Nachtmystium.

Ryan Mckern claims the reasons behind the change: “I moved to New Orleans this year as I have been going back and forth from Minneapolis to Louisiana to work with my project The Guilt Of…with Mike IX Williams [EyeHateGod and Arson Anthem vocalist]. Wolvhammer was a great way to be creative while I had to temporarily leave New Orleans in 2009. During my time in the band I wrote two EP’s and an album and did five tours, while commuting to NOLA for The Guilt Of…which got a writeup in Decibel Magazine. When I discussed wanting to do both Wolvhammer and new projects in new Orleans, the band decided to fire me. They are performing all new material and the two songs from “Black Marketeers” that I didn’t write. My picture is still being used in some press for their tour. But I wish them the best but would like to also say I expect new sounds and not what I did for them on previous albums. Fans of Wolvhammer can be on the lookout for some solo black metal songs I have coming out soon.”

Ryan states he is staying busy with many projects that he’s a part of in his new hometown. He insists that he will still miss being in Wolvhammer. “I’m proud of the sound I created in the Wolvhammer albums and will continue to forge the sickening brood of blackened sludge punk to the masses. I will miss playing for the Wolvhammer fans and fucking shit up in your cities and drinking with yall.”
