In an official statement posted on their MySpace, black metal band Negură Bunget has announced that vocalist Hupogrammos and guitarist Sol Faur have left the band. The statement, released by co-founder (alongside Hupogrammos) Negru, does not go into details explaining why they left, though it has been reported that it was a disagreement regarding the band's future artistic endeavours.
The band, who released the successful Om in 2006, plan to continue with a new line-up, which can be viewed below. Hupogrammos and Sol Faur are expected to announce their new project in the coming weeks, but have in the meantime issued a statement of their own, "We would like to thank everybody who supported and believed in Negura Bunget and invite you to follow our further musical activities.".
The new official Negura Bunget line-up is:
Corb - guitars/vocals
Spin - guitars
Gădineţ - bass
Inia Dinia - keyboards
