Guitarist Kjell Arne Hubred Departs Crest Of Darkness

Norwegian black metallers Crest of Darkness announced a change in lineup that sees the departure of Kjell Arne Hubred after a seven year stint with the band. His replacement will be Djevelkult guitarist Jan Fredrik Solheim. Founder and frontman Ingar Amlien commented on the departure:

"It’s sad to be saying goodbye to Kjell Arne after all this time, but he has a young family and with Crest of Darkness intending to work harder than ever, it was too difficult for him to devote the amount of time to the band that would be needed, and that’s something we understand. We’ve been very lucky in finding Jan Fredrik to replace him. He’s young, talented, highly motivated and has plenty of ambition. We’ve rehearsed with him several times and it was obvious that he knew Crest of Darkness' music long before he joined us.

"With the release of our new album imminent, he has brought a renewed sense of enthusiasm and purpose to the band, and as far as I’m concerned we’re sounding better and stronger than ever."

The band's latest release was the 2007 LP "Give Us the Power to Do Your Evil."
