BALFOR - Drastic Line-Up Change

Ukranian black metallers Balfor have announced a drastic line-up change that sees virtually the whole band depart. The only remaining member remains the founder Thorgeir, who founded the band back in 1997. Commenting on the reason for such a drastic change, Thorgeir said: "We parted ways for a variety of reasons and we hadn't actually worked together for a very long time. This decision was not an easy one, but it was a necessary one that took into account the needs and interests of all the band members, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the guys for all this time we worked together, it was a great experience! But sometimes a change is necessary if you want to move forward."
The new line-up which consists of Thorgeir on vocals and guitar, Warider on guitars and backing vocals, Athamas on bass and vocals and Khaoth on drums, has already started to work on their sophomore album, which will succeed in 2010 released album Barbaric Blood, out on Pulverised Records. Thorgeir is very positive about the bands development: "We have been rehearsing together since the beginning of the year, and I am now very sure that the new line up works just as well, if not better, than the previous incarnation of Balfor, because new blood has brought a fresh perspective to the band’s music and a lot of enthusiasm.  Warider, the new guitarist, is quite young, but hugely promising, whilst Khaoth has honed his considerable drumming skills with Dark Metallers Khors.  Athamas brings with him not only the experience he has gained with bands like Deferum Sacrum and Raventale, but he is also a great vocalist, which is able to give an additional perspective to the Balfor sound."
