Emperor Magus Caligula To Leave Dark Funeral

After a 15 year run, Emperor Magus Caligula, the singer for Dark Funeral has decided to leave the band. He had this to say about his decision to leave.

“I would like to inform all of our fans that on Saturday, August 21, at the Summer Breeze festival in Germany, I will be doing my last show with the band. Naturally I have mixed feelings about this decision, but it is final! They say that every person will have about 15 minutes of fame during their life. Well, I have had a hell-of-a-ride for 15 years now together with Lord Ahriman and Dark Funeral. As some people love to spread weird rumors about others, let me make this clear once and for all. I have not committed suicide, I have not taken an overdose, nor are there any personal issues between me and Dark Funeral.

However, my life has taken a new turn lately, and I am also getting married this year, thus my priorities in life lie somewhere else.I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our fans for their amazing support during all the 15 years I’ve been with the band. And I would also like to thank my brothers in Dark Funeral for all these years together. Lord Ahriman and I have managed to raise Dark Funeral from the deepest abyss, when we have confronted problems before. And there is no doubt in my mind, that Dark Funeral, without me, will raise once more, stronger than ever…
Thus I have spoken, thus shalt it be…… — Horns up, Masse Broberg A.K.A Emperor Magus Caligula”

Added guitarist Lord Ahriman: “Ave everyone! Caligula and I have shared some 15 kick ass years together and I would naturally like to thank my brother for the amazing work he has done for Dark Funeral over all these years. It’s been a pleasure indeed working together. You will be missed deeply! But as with everything else, I understand when people change course and get new priorities in life. And I fully respect that. Life moves on after all, and so will Dark Funeral.

In the meantime, and while we’re searching for a new vocalist, the most logical thing for us to do, is obviously enter writing mood. And that’s exactly what we’ll be doing. From now on and until we have found and installed a new killer vocalist, we begin to work on a new full-length. However, you can rest assured that as soon as we have found a new vocalist, we’ll set full force, and continue to tour the world in usual Dark Funeral manner.

The band is now in search of a new singer. Interested parties should check out the information on how to apply at the band’s official website.
