Guitarist Destructhor Exits Morbid Angel


Morbid Angel‘s lineup continues to spiral out of control with word that guitarist Thor Anders Myrhen (aka Destructhor) has now exited the group. He announced:

“I would like to announce that I, Destructhor, as well am out of Morbid Angel. Due to issues of them wanting to work with someone more local. Actually pretty good news to me, since I personally decided to leave Morbid Angel after the last tour we did in Europe in November/December 2014. It is definitely time for me to move on with the Norwegian extreme act Myrkskog. This is where I truly belong and exciting things are happening! A new record is being released next year with coming tours, festivals and so on. So it’s time to step it up and prepare for war with my Norwegian/Swedish brothers in Myrkskog. As for Morbid Angel, I wish them all the best with everything! It’s been a lot of great experiences! No hard feelings at all and may the future bring us all to another dimension!”

Drummer Tim Yeung has also exited the band, citing financial differences. Further adding to the confusion is word that the group are again working with vocalist/bassist Steve Tucker, while apparently also keeping vocalist/bassist David Vincent in the fold as well. Tucker addressed whether or not he and Vincent would both be playing in the band, offering: “Will there be both myself and David in Morbid Angel? Hahahahhahhahahaha. Sorry, man, I play death metal, so, NO.”
