Monday, June 11, 2018 8:29 AM PT

Norwegian musician King ov Hell (aka King) has exited black metal band Abbath after three years with the group. His camp has issued the following statement:

King will no longer be part of Abbath due to conflicting views on lyrical concepts of the upcoming album. The lyrics are inspired by Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Gustav Jung. King finds that Jung's connection to Christian mysticism is incompatible with the image of the band.

"I wish members of the actual band, label, and crew all the best for the upcoming shows and album. The music itself is nothing short of brilliant. However, I must maintain artistic integrity and respectfully step aside." - King
