Carach Angren Drummer “Namtar” Exits The Band

Carach Angren drummer Ivo “Namtar” Wijers announces his exit from the group, sharing the below statement explaining his frustrations with the music industry that led him to this decision:

“I’m leaving Carach Angren, I’ve decided this some months ago.

In this statement I’ll be giving my opinion on things, it’s fine to disagree. Though I hope after you’re done reading you’ll understand why I’m moving on.

In my opinion the band has become some sort of employee of the metal music business throughout the years.

You don’t navigate anymore, but you’re being steered around. At first, that doesn’t sound that bad, It’s business. But it has evolved to a lot of bumping and eventually crash situations.

I think it’s a result of to many companies, individuals etc. having their own mixed connections, deals, contracts, mixed interests and so on.

The next result is that to many and often same mistakes are made, things forgotten and so problems occur. Especially in the live section, everything regarding shows/tours. The list is long.

Solutions can be found, I agree on that. But at some point you’re just done with it right? It gets repetitive. It’s not even your job.

Especially when your band prepare things very well. I always wonder what it is each time, not caring, not enough capacity or the lack of common sense?

I can talk hours about this but I’ll stick to the point where I was done with it. Right before the start of our European headline tour last year, we were suddenly informed that we couldn’t bring our stage production due to logistic issues.

That’s not good and we’ve tried to find solutions. But it never came to a solution eventually because, there you have it, deals were already made. You can not switch, budgets are set and the tour is starting within a few days. And there you are, stuck. And yes this is Carach Angren, we manage everything. But it’s not right.

It’s also a bit of a personal thing as I’ve made the machinery, the moving keyboard and the drumkits etc. myself.... More...
