Koldbrann - Part Ways With Two Members, Replacements Announced

Original news, posted on 12.05.2009

Norwegian metallers Koldbrann have issued the following statement:

"Koldbrann has chosen to end the collaboration with it's drummer through 7 years, Tom V. "Fordervelse" Nilsen, due to internal disagreements. Tom V. "Fordervelse" Nilsen has played drums on all of Koldbrann's releases and concerts to this date, and had a significant impact on the development of the band.

Shortly after this occured, Geir Antonsen stated that he wants to step down from his position as 2nd guitarist of the band, as he no longer feels that he has the necessary capasity to continue with active touring. Geir Antonsen has given his all for Koldbrann since 2004, both on stage and recordings.

The remaining Koldbrann are grateful for all the work the two of you have put into the band through the years, and we wish you the very best for the future!

These changes pose some challenges for Koldbrann, however, the creative forces in the band are still intact, and there are no plans to retire whatsoever. We are currently working hard on finding suitable replacements, and we've already found some very promising candidates. We will return with an update as soon as the last pieces of the puzzle are in place!

Kvass, Mannevond and Stian Johnskareng."

A statement from Tom V. "Fordervelse" Nilsen can be found on his MySpace site.

Wow, I didn't know that the guy from Hjarnidaudi had a relationship with this band. It's a small world.
