Dimmu Borgir parts ways with two members

Monday, August 31, 2009 8:23 AM PT

Norwegian black metal band Dimmu Borgir has officially confirmed the departures of both Vortex (bass) and Mustis (keyboards). The group has issued the following:

"We regret to inform you that we have parted ways with both Vortex and Mustis. However, we do want to make it perfectly clear that the creative force in the band is highly intact, perhaps even more so than ever. With that being said, we're currently working on our next album and are excited to start a new chapter in the legacy that is Dimmu Borgir."

Not really a problem. A half of Norway population can play metal perfectly.

without training that is

Fact: Half of Norway was already in this band and that didn't help much.

The keyboardist can be replaced and not be a big deal, Vortex not doing his vocal parts will change the way the overall music will sound. I'm saddened by this but oh well, that's what happens in bands. Band is awesome either way

Since when is Dimmu Borgir considered a legacy?

8/31/2009 11:07:43 AM
Oh no, not Mustis!

^^Hey Lance. I got laid last night. How about you? Didn't think so.

8/31/2009 11:18:29 AM
This is something I wasn't expecting to see.

8/31/2009 11:31:10 AM

8/31/2009 11:38:24 AM

the creative force is still intact especially if "Vortex" and "Mustis" pick their own names. This band should depart as a whole.

8/31/2009 12:05:29 PM
I was hoping it would be the vocalist and a guitarist so there wouldve a good chance of a break up.

I like em, but who ever came up with rolling 666 in a c-low game for part of there video should be kicked outta the band.

8/31/2009 1:40:18 PM

8/31/2009 4:55:40 PM
nobody cares shit fcking band

8/31/2009 5:10:07 PM
I don't get how whenever a band loses members, they always say this stupid shit how they are going to be better than ever.

Emmure Borgir

Impendind doom is stoked LOL

8/31/2009 6:45:15 PM
Mustis should start a fully instrumental synth-based project of his own now, or maybe even do full motion picture scores. That's what he really should do.

8/31/2009 6:45:55 PM
Also, the band will be lacking in general without Vortex's clean vocals. They were the most epic thing the band had going for them. I was over them a couple of albums ago anyways :(

8/31/2009 9:30:23 PM
next news they post about this band should be them breaking up!

9/1/2009 4:17:19 AM
Impending Doom is stoked!

9/2/2009 1:41:41 AM
everyone that says "impending doom is stoked" wishes they were cool enough to say "meshuggah did it." but you're all too busy sucking each other's dcks for being "witty." please die

9/2/2009 2:55:48 AM
Can't stand this band
