Zyklon - Split Up


Message posted on the band's official myspace page today:

After taking an offical break over two years ago, it has now become the reality that Zyklon is no longer a functional band, and thus the decision is made to formaly split up the band, instead of just letting it decend into nothingness.
As a final release from the band, Candlelight Records will later this year put out a boxset, entitled "The Storm Manifesto", including all three full-length albums with various bonus material. Zyklon played its final show in Tokyo, Japan on the 28th of September 2007.

All members of Zyklon are still active on various fronts. Samoth is currently in the studio working on the debut album for his new project, The Wretched End. Destructhor is still touring with Morbid Angel, and is still planning to complete a new Myrkskog album with Secthdamon. Trym is mainly working in his tattoo shop, but is scheduled to appear in a new music project soon.

Although slightly sad news, the line "and is still planning to complete a new Myrkskog album" makes it all better.

This is terrible news

I was hoping we'd get a new album from them at some stage soon.

Never care much for them. But the new album is good news, maybe I miss them more with a good last work.

I did too on a Brutal Assault. but honestly, im not surprised by this, in the typical sense of "split up", they already were before. bands can reform, when the time is right. so no big deal at all. btw that storm manifesto info is nice, i think ill go for it. maybe theyll put the boxset on vynils too, it might end up really cool. chaos deathcult ftw!

Oh yeah, true. So in this case they are already dead to me.

Aw fuck... just a few days ago I was iistening to Aeon again and looking at their m-a page, with the copy-paste of their hiatus message... that new Candlelight release sounds perfect for me though, with the sweet cover of Pull the Plug and more

Meh. i liked a couple songs, but for the most part they kinda represented what i dislike most about modern DM and miss most about the shit i listened to back in '91...

they'll all land on their feet, so bully for them.

I've never been that big on Zyklon, so as long as Destructhor and Secthdamon are focusing on Morbid Angel/Myrkskog, then I'm happy.
