Swedish thrashers Carnal Forge have issued the following update:

"Jari Kuusisto (rythm guitar) & Jens C Mortensen (vocals) have both left the band. We are sorry not to have the guys on board anymore, and we wish them all the best for the future. We want to thank them for all their work and efforts in the band and all the crazy times we've shared through the years... Cheers!!!
The good news is that we have found two new members to replace Jari and Jens. Dino Medanhodzic on lead guitar (Soulbreach) and Peter Tuthill on vocals (ex Construcdead, and also in Godsic). We have been rehearsing for the last month and the transition has gone real smooth, and we are ready to hit the stage again. The first show with the new line up will be in Sala, Sweden on the 23:rd of February at Rockland. In March and April we will team up with brittish thrashers Onslaught for a European tour of 22 shows."

Jari's statement:
"It's with great sadness I must inform you all that I have decided to leave CF. I just feel that my time in CF has come to an end, and I really haven't anything more to offer to the band. It's been great working with the band over these 10 years and I wish the guys the best of luck in the future (Because they deserve it). For those of you that wonder. I will continue with my music carrier but with my other band This Human Design. So hopefully I will see you all again in a near future. Thank you all for the endless support. See you soon. // Cheers Jari"

Jens' statement:
"It is with sadness in my heart I tell you that my time as the voice of CF is over. Long story short; I found myself in a situtation where I had to choose 'tween being the singer of CF and my job/personal life and I chose the latter. I hope you'll all understand that this wasn't an easy desicion for me. I'd like to thank all the people that supported our efforts during my 3+ years in CF and give a big shout-out to all the bands/crews/bartenders that put up with our shit, Cheers! Also, BIG thanks and a heartfelt goodspeed to the girls in CF who are now embarking on a new adventure... You'll get nothing but phat respect and love from me since I'll always consider you my brothers in arms. Stay Me(n)tal! / Tack Fan! /jCm"

Peter's statement:
"Having been a huge fan of the band's music through all the years since the debut album, I can't even begin to tell you how thrilled I am to be a part of this! I can't wait to get out on the road and tear some throat! I'm promising you a new energetic Carnal Forge with a force that will blow you away!"

Dino's statement:
"It felt great to be given this opportunity to play with such amazing musicians. I met them for the first time when I did a guest appearance on the "Aren´t you dead yet" album, and I started listening to their music right after that. When Lars called me about three years later and asked if I wanted to join the band I was thrilled! No doubt I was going to join the best metal band of Sweden!"
