Charon Announces Plans To Disband, Statement Posted Online

The following statement has been posted online by Finnish goth metal act Charon, in which it announces the band's plan to disband.

"This shouldn't be a really big surprise for anyone. We are forced to admit that we have no longer anything new to give to the genre in which Charon has operated. Doing things forced or not straight from the heart has never been a band practice for us. And a 100% satisfactory outcome would no longer be possible," the band explains in a statement.

"After the last studio album we should have gotten a grip in time and not to delay the decisions we faced in the end of 2009. In the summer 2010, 'a new beginning' with a new guitarist worked brilliantly and we even wrote a full album of songs. But we did not have enough heart and passion to light up the final fire and to finish the record. Years of hanging loose from the noose had eaten up most of our energy and creativity.

"Playing in the band has been a solid part of our lives for nearly two decades. Charon had been a measure for everything that we've done in our lives. There are lots of good memories and tours behind and above all, great fans. Everything has its moments but nothing lasts forever. Our moment ends now."

That's too bad. I had great expectations on Charon's future...that has gone by the wayside...hopefully in a few years, they can emerge and surprise us fans. Thanks for the great music Charon!
