Masse Broberg (aka Emperor Magus Caligula), vocalist for Swedish black metal band Dark Funeral, has announced his departure from the group:
"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 Dark Funeral. Naturally I have 'mixed feelings' about this decision, but it is final! They say that every person will have about 15min 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... My life has taken a new turn lately, and I am also getting married this year (NOT to some crazy bitch in the U.S though, hahaha), whereof 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 of 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."
Consequently, Dark Funeral is in search of a replacement. Here's the official word:
"Naturally, our demands on a new vocalist will be VERY high, but we are fully confident that there are some amazing vocalists out there that would fit us like a hand in glove. So if you do believe that you have what it takes to blow us away with your vocal skills, and to replace Caligula, don’t hesitate to send us some audio/DVD files of your vocal performance! Send to: firstname.lastname@example.org"
