AGALLOCH – Part Ways, On Hiatus

  • Print

Unfortunate news came recently from USA based neofolk/atmospheric black metallers Agalloch, as they announced a founding and fundamental member of the band John Haughm has decided to part ways with the rest of the band. What the future holds for the separate parties remains undetermined and Haughm explained that he isn't sure if this is a permanent end of the band or not. He later commented on the whole thing on the band’s official Facebook profile by stating: "After being inundated by a barrage of responses, I feel that I should clarify some things. I take full responsibility for the decision to part ways with the other guys. It was difficult, well thought-out, and something that had been culminating over the past couple of years. I simply could not continue any further with the band as it was. I had to make a change as my motivation and inspiration had started to completely deteriorate. Whether this is the permanent end of Agalloch altogether or a possible fresh start, I don't know. I probably won't know for a while. The band has simply been reduced back to its founding, visionary member for the first time in 20 years. Beyond that, the future is unknown." Link
