Belgian black metal act Enthroned has announced the departure of bass player Phorgath (real name Jeremie Bezier), who joined the band a decade ago. Enthroned has issued the following:

After ten years Phorgath has decided to leave Enthroned. The band will continue with a new member and look forward to the forthcoming concerts of their upcoming tours and recording their eleventh album, due to be recorded later this year.

Phorgath says: "I would like to say a big 'thank you' to Enthroned for doing my part on these four albums and for giving me the opportunity to produce three of them. I will miss being with and travelling the world with the guys. I have only good memories, but it's time for me and Enthroned to focus on our new projects. Hail Enthroned and The Blackened Horde."

We're sad to see Phorgath go, but we totally respect his decision and send him all our support for the future. The past ten years have been beyond intense, we've gone through a lot together, as brothers, as musicians and as partners in crime. There is no animosity or tension between us.

All our best wishes go to Phorgath; may all your future projects go according to your plans! The four of us will now continue with a new bass player, who is none other than long-time friend Norgaath, known for his duties within Nightbringer / Coldborn /Grimfaug. We're looking forward to finishing the composition and starting the recording of the new album with Norgaath and go on the road together.
