Dodheimsgard Comments On Departure Of Vocalist Kvohst

Norwegian act Dodheimsgard recently parted ways with vocalist Kvohst, and the band has now issued the following statement about upcoming activity:

"Dear all, even though Kvosht's departure seems sudden and abrupt I can assure you that it is not. This decision was in fact a welcome one by all parties involved and has no consequence towards the ambition that the band has set out for the forthcoming years. Hence, the job of bringing forth a new band going under the dhg banner was set in motion a long time ago. I never wanted to make a big fuss about the changes within the band this time around, since no new release has been offered and nothing really significant has happened since Kvosht last stepped out of the band in 2007. Quite frankly, I did not see it as that big of a deal.

"In this context, I guess Kvosht's statements seem a bit confusing in relation to whats really going on in the Asylum these days...I can only guess that he wanted to address those among you who are his fans, and let you know what he is doing next. Unfortunately, this has also caused some confusion among promoters, ticket buyers for upcoming shows, and Dødheimsgard followers in general.

"I therefore find it appropriate to make you all aware that the path of Dødheimsgard has suffered no setbacks nor come to a halt. Upcoming shows and the work going into the next album will continue as planned. It's all been a long process in which to see what is manageable inside the confines of a small group of people that are pushing in the same direction. In order to get to where you want to be, you sometimes need to try certain things before you reach the perfect balance on the scale. It's a natural progression and evolution of any collective outlet that does not work at a 100 percent of its capacity. It can be due to different priorities, logistics, creative differences etc. But whatever it is, you take what you have and slowly tune, turn and twist it into a clear minded exotic beast that will offer expressive music in various forms for years to come.

"Sometimes that means departing with someone that has brought a lot to the band in the past. So, even though it has amounted to much extra work, it was all necessary in relation to bringing the band out of auto-pilot mode and to reconnect with the passion, the hunger, and the ambition to create music with no inhibitions. More news is coming soon."
