||Norwegian metallers Helheim have issued the following update:
"We are truly sorry to say that Thorbjørn has left Helheim. He has been a central piece in Helheim since he joined in 1999. Many fantastic riffs and great ideas has come from his weird mind. Now he will focus on his other musical project, Sinking Sea, with Lindheim [ex-Helheim keyboardist] and others. We wish you good luck, and hope you will succeed with Sinking Sea!"
