Vocalist Chity Somapala (ex-AVALON, FARO) has officially left FIREWIND due to "personal reasons."

Somapala originally joined FIREWIND in early 2004 as the replacement for Stephen Fredrick. Chity appeared on the band's third disc, "Forged by Fire", which was produced by band leader/guitarist Gus G. and mixed by Fredrik Nordström at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden. Guest musicians on the album included former MEGADETH guitarist Marty Friedman and ex-TESTAMENT/DEATH axeman James Murphy.

Gus G. recently joined ARCH ENEMY as the group's touring guitarist after Christoper Amott bowed out of that band in order to "fully concentrate on his studies at home in Sweden," according to ARCH ENEMY axeman Michael Amott.
