Violinist Janne Liljekvist has left Swedish viking metallers Månegarm on permanent basis due to lack of motivation. The band commented on his departure via their Facebook page: "It's of course unfortunate after almost 15 years together, but it's also an unsustainable situation if 1 out of 5 can't find the motivation and put the effort into the band that is needed to move forward."

"However, Månegarm will definitely move on as planned and this will have no impact on our music at all. The work with the new album goes on as planned and we can promise you that it will be a killer! The mighty wolf will strike again, this time harder than ever before!"

They should bring Zagan from "Black Messiah" his style suits Manegarm perfectly!

Well, at least it wasn't a more prominent member that has left Manegarm, no disrespect to Janne at all. Hopefully the new album will be awesome!

Janne not a prominent member?! Have you ever seen 'em live??

Will not effect the music at all huh?

Damn, this is a real shame... First the bassist, then the violinist, now I have doubts that "the mighty wolf will strike again"...

Depends on who did the songwriting... but he was really good.

Wonder if they'll replace him or just do the violin playback?
