Norwegian metallers Madder Mortem have issued the following update on their official website:

"We've been aware that Odd was thinking about leaving the band since winter 2010, and have been looking for a possible replacement.

After much consideration regarding who could fill his shoes, fit in with the rest of us socially and be a creative, fifth input to the band, we only came up with one name. Luckily for us, he has now entered our ranks full-time. Patrick Scantlebury is our new permanent guitarist. He has already made one live appearance with us in our hometown at the Norf-festival.

Some might know him as one of the founders of Frantic Bleep. He was our guitar-tech and merchandiser on the Opeth tour in 2003, and he also filled in for Odd on a couple of gigs in 2005. We all went to school with him at Tynset, and BP and Pat has played together in various constellations. We're already busy writing more new material with Patrick, and it feels like we've got a true chemistry.

We welcome him to the Madder family and hope you'll do the same.

Again it's a fresh start for us."

Sounds like it will be a good transition, and I'm already curious what he'll bring to the MM sound, as it's their occasional addition of new members that seems to push them more and more into their own territories

Oh... I liked Odd, but changes are unavoidable. I hope they won't lose that Retro sound
