Posted by AP on 23/04/14

Norwegian pagan/black metal crew Ragnarok have parted ways with frontman Hans Fyrste, who had been with the band since 2005 and contributed vocals to "Collectors of the King" (2010) and "Malediction" (2012). Fyrste is cutting back on his musical activities due to personal and job-related commitments, which had been affecting his ability to tour with Ragnarok at the end of last year.

Fyrste explains his decision with the following statement:

The decision to leave RAGNAROK, has been an extremely hard one to make. Jontho and Brigge brought me in to the horde in 2005, and this still stands as my biggest achievement as a musician. Personal circumstances have made it so that I will not be able to dedicate myself to RAGNAROK, as much as it requires. It is with a heavy heart  that we have come  to an agreement, and I am pulling out of the band.

All words fall short compared to how grateful I am for have taken part in this journey.Over the years, we have experienced so many great achievements, and I would never have been without any of them. Being able to tour around the world, from Siberia to Rio de Janeiro, with supporting, passionate, and faithful friends and fans in every city, has been a humbling experience. Every step of the way has also brought with it impressions, educating me to be a stronger person. Also learning so many new things, evolving to be the vocalist and human being I am today.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has made this journey possible. Without all my great friends and fans out there, nothing of this could have ever happened. Thank you! And finally, of course, thank you, Jontho, DezeptiCunt, and Bolverk. Thank you for all the great times on and off the stage. Thank you for everything we have gone through together. Thank you for the brotherhood and support!  I leave RAGNAROK as a humble man, and wish my brothers all the best in the future.
