After 24 years of continuous involvement in Tiamat, Johan Edlund has decided to depart from the band. In doing so, he is permitting the remaining band members to keep going under the Tiamat moniker, if they want to.
I have decided to leave TIAMAT. My health etc.. Doesn't work any longer. I say leave because I don't claim anything TIAMAT. If the other guys wanna continue, fine.. Go ahead. Get a great goodlooking vocalist, sign to Century Media & just do it. But I'm out & not even interested apart from wishing all the best for the band. All contracts & such will be handed out to Anders, Lars & Roger, if they're into it. I want nothing from this, I was spoiled too much of being an adult. Give someone a better chance. I will do the four festivals we have booked for the summer. Face it, there are other bands, plus even TIAMAT might get better! Love my brothers & thank YOU for your support! KISSES!
