Norwegian black metal act Ragnarok have announced an amicable parting of the ways with their frontman Hans Fyrste.
Fyrste, who has been with the band since 2005 and performed vocals on two of their seven full-length albums is cutting back on his musical activities due to other personal and job-related commitments.
His last live appearance with the band was at this year’s Blastfest festival in February.
“The decision to leave Ragnarok has been an extremely hard one to make. Jontho and Brigge brought me in to the horde in 2005, and this still stands as my biggest achievement as a musician. Personal circumstances have made it so that I will not be able to dedicate myself to Ragnarok, as much as it requires. It is with a heavy heart that we have come to an agreement, and I am pulling out of the band.”
