Swedish “Viking metal” act MÅNEGARM is currently recording its new album for an April/May 2013 release via Napalm Records.
Commented the band: “[So far] all is done and recorded except vocals on six tracks. Due to some unforeseen voice problems, the mixing of the album is postponed one month until the last weekend in January. We already got on test mix of a track and it sounds killer! So you can expect some heavy shit.”
Violin player Janne Liljekvist has left MÅNEGARM in June “due to lack of motivation.”
MÅNEGARM‘s most recent CD, “Nattväsen”, was released in November 2009 via Regain Records.
Finland’s ENSIFERUM are the latest act confirmed for the 2013 edition of the Rockstad: Falun Festival, which is scheduled for August 15th – 17th at Lugnet Falun in Falun, Sweden.
Bands confirmed so far include: AXXIS, BLOODBOUND, ELVENKING, ENSIFERUM, FIMBULTYR, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR, MÅNEGARM, NEVERLORE, POWERWOLF, RAUBTIER, REVOKED, SABATON, WRONG CHANNEL and ZIA.

Violin player Janne Liljekvist has left the Swedish “Viking metal” act MÅNEGARM “due to lack of motivation.”
Commented the remaining members of the group: “It’s of course unfortunate after almost 15 years together, but it’s also an unsustainable situation if one out of five can’t find the motivation and put the effort into the band that is needed to move forward. However, MÅNEGARM will definitely move on as planned and this will have no impact on our music at all. The work with the new album goes on as planned and we can promise you that it will be a killer! The mighty wolf WILL strike again, this time harder than ever before!”
MÅNEGARM last year inked a deal with Napalm Records. The band’s new album is scheduled for release at the end of 2012.
