As posted on the band's website, vocalist Pål "Athera" Mathisen was rushed into Akershus Universitetssykehus Hospital in Lørenskog, Norway on the morning of March 9th suffering from acute stomach pains and heavy bleeding. Initial tests revealed that he had suffered a heart attack caused by a damaged blood vessel. Athera is currently in the intensive care unit under close observation, while further tests are carried out. He is expected to remain hospitalised for the foreseeable future.

At this moment future plans including touring commitments remain unchanged, until a full diagnosis of his condition has been confirmed. Everyone involved with the band wishes Athera a fast and speedy recovery.

The band's manager also added some of the Norwegian gigs in the near future will probably have to be cancelled.

(thanks Sigyn)
