Illnath - Call It A Day

Another band has decided to disband this year, this time it is Illnath from Denmark. The band's mastermind Peter "Pete" Falk announced that he is no longer interested in melodic extreme metal and the other band members felt it wouldn't make sense to continue the band without the founding member. As a consequence of that, the recent 4 Shades Of Me will be the group's last album and Illnath is now calling it a day.

Pete stated: "I have experienced many things since 1997 when Illnath played our first tunes. As the only founding member since then I have always had a strong belief in the band. Nothing has been able to overshadow the will and energy to work forward and fight for things. I am 37 years old now and I have gained a more nuanced view of things. In the recent years, my personal musical preferences moved in a somewhat different direction than melodic extreme metal, and I feel that now is the time for a change. I regret nothing in my time with Illnath and I have had many great experiences with the band, but my heart does not live and breathe for this band anymore.

Given that neither Dennis, Kenneth or Marika feel that it is the right thing to continue Illnath without my participation, we have decided to call it a day. Instead of focusing on the sad aspect of Illnath stopping, I encourage our fans to focus on the good things Illnath, after all, has brought to the world through the nearly 20 years as an active band.

I will still be working on my solo project Leadfreak and Marika will be working in her black metal band Machiavellian. We all hope to see you guys around through other musical aspects, and last but not least we would like to thank you all for the years of support and dedication towards the band, you have been our rock through it all. We sincerely thank you."

Probably for the best. The first two Illnath albums are absolutely outstanding, I thought the third one was good while different. Their last effort however, is probably the worst album of 2013.

'Cast Into Fields Of Evil Pleasure' is a really damn good melodic black metal album.

Narrenschiff was a good vocalist, didn't like the female vocalist and their last album sucks!

Definitely for the best. Cast Into Fields of Evil Pleasure and Second Skin of Harlequin are essential Melodic Death/Black albums. Third Act was pretty bad, but their latest is an absolute joke. Easily my pick for "Worst Album of the Year"

Maybe a little too late. One simply can't compensate Narrenschiff but Marika was at least a step up again and it would have been interesting how she develops. So I read this with mixed feelings.

Agree with al of you guys. Cast into the fields... was actually the first bm album i listened to in my life.

Probably the best news for today. I will always remember how awesome are their first 2 albums. Good luck to them in other projects

About fucking time. All of you know it, first two albums are superb, the others are crap.
