Twilight Force singer departs

2017-10-03 by Nazzadan | 24 Comments
In spectacular fashion, Twilight Force announced on their Facebook page that vocalist Christian Erikkson, better known by his stage name Chrileon, has left the band. Why you may ask? Well, try to decipher it below.

Dear friends, followers and apprentices.

We now bring you tidings of great importance. So please, stay a while, and listen.
Our singer Chrileon is no longer a part of Twilight Force.

The Twilight Kingdoms have been ravaged by turbulent times. Twilight Force has in recent times travelled far and wide, searching answers to ancient conondrums and mystical prophecies.

We have done battle numerous times during these journeys; and always fought back to back, ever resilient, and ever prosperous.

Everything to bring back order, peace and magic to the Twilight Kingdoms.

It has now become apparent to us, that somewhere along this perilous journey, Chrileon fell victim to the Forcelord's dark soul magic.

And alas, his mind was easily enticed by these deceitful whispers of darkness, until the day eventually came, when Chrileon's spirit was completely obscured by blackness and avarice.

He secretly spawned minions of beguiling charm to aid him in his battle, and now, in the eleventh hour, Chrileon forsook his vow to stand by our side in the battles to come.
Hence, Chrileon has inevitably forfeited his birthright to the Emerald Throne, and is unfit to rule the Kingdoms as a beacon of twilight.

We know this might seem like grave news to some of our brave Knights. But fear not!
The future endeavours of Twilight Force will NOT be affected in any way,
shape or form by the departure and fall of Chrileon.

His compositional contributions to Twilight Force has always been nonexistent.

So the sights, sounds, and sparkling musical landscapes of Twilight Force will forever remain utterly and completely unaffected.

We will now begin the exciting adventure of searching the kingdoms for a worthy and mighty successor to Chrileon, to carry onwards the Crystal of Emerald Fire!

Also, the forthcoming journey together with Dragonforce will commence as planned with a temporary, albeit gloriously mighty and renowned replacement! It will be none other than our good friend Tommy Johansson (Sabaton, ReinXeed).

Just to make it clear, he is not the new singer of Twilight Force; the stars fortunately aligned perfectly so that the touring schedule of Sabaton did not collide with our adventures together with Dragonforce.

We will respond to inquires in the comments to the best of our abilities.

As much as I love the commitment to theme here, I do really want to know what happened to Chrileon, sounds like a dick move on the bands part.

I'm currently riding the fence between "this is a total dick move" and "this is absolutely brilliant"

This is kinda hilarious. Though I can't tell if the singer was a dick or the band are dicks for throwing him under the bus here.

Either way, too many dicks in one place never leads to something good in the Kingdom of Twilight Force (or real life). Forcelord knew that and beguiled Chrileon with his "magic".

"His compositional contributions to Twilight Force has always been nonexistent."

Gotta love this line in between a text that reads like a fairy tale.

At the very least, they have the vocalist from Sabaton for the remainder of the tour, and he's a much more distinct vocalist. Maybe they can hang on to him for an album or two

Yeah I know nothing about this Sabaton dude, he apparently only joined like a year ago and I haven't heard any material that would have been released since then. As cheesy and corny as this whole situation is, Chrileon was a pretty good PM vocalist so it blows.

I don't think Sabaton's singer will be able to reach the high notes...

Their last album was very meh.

It's not their main vocalist, it's apparently their guitarist that will be doing vox for Twilight Force

Another update, Christian's response to being fired:

He was fired out of nowhere via text and is pretty shook up over it.
