Crest Of Darkness - Part Ways With Guitarist, Replacement Announced

Norwegian black metallers Crest Of Darkness have announced a change in lineup that sees the departure of Kjell Arne Hubred after seven years with the band, and the arrival of guitarist Jan Fredrik Solheim (Djevelkult) to replace him.

"It's sad to be saying goodbye to Kjell Arne after all this time," said founder and front man Ingar Amlien, "but he has a young family and with Crest Of Darkness intending to work harder than ever, it was too difficult for him to devote the amount of time to the band that would be needed, and that's something we understand. We've been very lucky in finding Jan Fredrik to replace him. He's young, talented, highly motivated and has plenty of ambition. We've rehearsed with him several times and it was obvious that he knew Crest Of Darkness music long before he joined us. With the release of our new album imminent, he has brought a renewed sense of enthusiasm and purpose to the band, and as far as I'm concerned we're sounding better and stronger than ever."

The band is set to release their sixth album titled In The Presence Of Death on My Kingdom Music soon.
