CIRRHA NIVA Parts Ways With Singer

Dutch progressive rock/metal band CIRRHA NIVA has parted ways with vocalist Arnold Kloek.

Commented Kloek in a statement: "Yes, almost 10 years I have been the singer of CIRRHA NIVA. Years I will never forget. But times change and so do I.

"In the last year of being busy with writing songs it slowly became clear to me: I was not really happy with the way and the direction the other guys wanted to go with the melody lines and style of singing. In other words we have grown apart in musical ways. Therefore I have decided to leave CIRRHA NIVA.

"It was not an easy decision but I need to be honest to everyone and myself. Not being happy affected my creativity more and more. It started to leave a mark on the band and that's not a good thing.

I would like to thank Carlo, Daniel, Rob and Tommy for all the good times we had and wish them good luck in the future. And I would like to thank everyone that supported us all those years. I also thank the crew members for all there effort time and energy. You guys and girls rule!!!

"So I close this door behind me to open other doors with new roads to follow.

"You will soon hear from me again."

CIRRHA NIVA's last CD, "Liaison de la Morte", was released in 2001.
