Erie, Pennsylvania-based black metal band JORMUNGAND has apparently split up following the departure of Imperial Lord Balaam (vocals),Fury (guitar) and Ihnnos.
Commented Fury in a posting on the band's MySpace page (since deleted): "As it has always been said, all good things must come to an end. Fed up with the lack of commitment and dedication from the other two members, Imperial Lord Balaam, Fury, and Ihnnos have decided to call it quits, disband, and seek other musical interests in hopes of finding musicians who love being musicians. There were some very personal issues that took place and I, Fury, am personally insulted that I've put my heart into this all for nothing, and have heard all sorts of shit-talking from every single source except from the mouth of the assholes talking. Another fuckin Erie band down the tubes. It takes a special kind of person to be a musician, and a special ground of people to create a solid lineup and apparently the five of us weren't destined to achieve any type of success."
Prior to the band's split, JORMUNGAND was scheduled to perform at The Hellfire Manifest, set to take place August 25-26 in Huntsville, AL.
