Sad to hear this, the band had some quality material, especially the debut. I guess when you loose a key member like that it makes it much more difficult to continue on.

That's too bad, I really enjoyed Loss. I should probably get around to listening to Curse.

Sad to hear it. I really love the Loss album, reminds of Drudkh at times, and the atmosphere is just magical. Heofungtid is probably my fave.

Very sad to hear this news. They were one of the best black metal acts from the UK in recent years.

Shit, really? Here I was thinking it was about time for another album from them, which is an even bigger shame because, as good as Loss was, I think Curse was a pretty big improvement on the debut and was really looking forward to what they'd do next. Hopefully the members go on to do some interesting stuff.

A damn shame to be sure. I'll be playing Loss tonight in their honor.

Those who crush the roots of blood suck an excellent tune.

Very sad news!! I am a huge fan of the debut album. That album cover, beautiful intro and awesome songs like Leódum on Lande and the majestic That Which Is Now Forgotten - 597 are among the best in the genre. With the loss of the original keyboardist and singer the sophomore album was more guitar oriented, it was great but it was not the same.

Anyway I had some hope to see them playing and with a third álbum. Its a great loss.

It definitely sucks, but I respect their decision. Not many bands have the integrity to call it a day when a key member leaves. If he really is such an integral part of their sound and style I wouldn't want them to go on without him anyway.

For me this happened when Brunwulf and Æðelwalh left the band but yes, I think that their decision has been quite respectable.

Crappy news, but not really that surprising since they've been pretty quiet for awhile now. Oh well, at least we still have Winterfylleth putting out quality albums in a similar style.

Man that sucks, but the three or four releases they had kicked ass, I mean like really beautiful tracks from those guys.

It seems that they had already written a lot of material for an upcoming album. I would like to see this stuff released.

I guess it was for Lord's subtle joke! ;)

I'm really disappointed too.. this kind of black metal isn't my thing, so i was really surprised when i enjoyed so much Loss, it sounds truly ..ancient. i can't find a better word to describe it :(

Ah, and here I almost roadtripped to see their only Stateside appearance in St. Paul-Minneapolis at a festival the fellow from Panopticon was putting together. Missed opportunity, there.

Loss is a journey, I love the hints of Cascadian black metal as well as a symphonic, archaic British vibe throughout.
Glad I have a copy of that modern gem.
