Official statement from the band:

Late October, Lisa announced to her fellow bandmembers she'd decided to leave Draconian starting as soon as possible. It had been on the table for some time.

It's with sadness we state this message. Lisa has, since her appearance on the Draconian demo Dark Oceans We Cry, continued to astonish and melt thousands of people's hearts over the years with her emotional vocal. The addition of Lisa is what helped us to get our long awaited record contract. We are very aware what she has meant to our band and the legacy she's left us with.

We are further sorry about all fans that never got the chance to see this line-up of Draconian; a line-up that made Draconian what it is today. This bad news will however not mean the end for us. The band is determined to enter a new era of productivity and artistic expression.

Lisa's appearance with Draconian at the 9th edition of Metal Female Voices in Belgium became her last show with the band. It's a worthy end of an almost 10 year calling and a beginning of something new for Draconian.

Our profoundest appreciation and gratitude to our friend Lisa Johansson for these years working together. We wish her and her family the best possible for the future.

There were indeed two pages of near suicidal Lisa fan remarks here. Strange.
Ah well, who cares anyway?

Either the MS mods purged it for lulz (or for the sake of sanity) or some h4x0r has exploited a security vulnerability.

If it's the latter, at least he's putting it to good use.

That's a real sad thing! I've always adored her voice combined with the growls.

Why all the comments were deleted here??!

I dunno, and I'm quite upset. I made a good "they should sign Tarja" joke.

Everyone else mostly expressed suicidal sentiments.

I have to say, I'm confused why they were deleted as well, as no reason has come forth.
Troy Killjoy - 22.11.2011 at 01:00  
I'm assuming Draco fanboys haxxed up the thread.
