Finnish epic metallers CRIMFALL have issued the following announcement on their Facebook Page:
The day none of us wanted to come has arrived. In order to keep the flame of Crimfall alive, and to finish our 3rd album, it has become evident we need to find the creative spirit we once had. As the only way out from the current situation we have decided, all together, that the best solution for the band, and for each one of us individually, is that Crimfall continues on without Helena.
How did we end up in a situation like this? We don’t know the answer. But as it seems that Crimfall is constantly fighting against the current state of music industry, we simply cannot win this battle if we also keep fighting against each other unable to agree and communicate on essential things.
All in all, it is a sad, sad day for us. But we believe we will rise up from the ashes, stronger than ever!
Crimfall starts to look for a new singer (male or female) as we speak. If you are (or if you know) the person we are looking for, just simply send email to email@example.com. More information will be following in the coming weeks.

Thanks Helena for past 6 years (Burning Winds, never forget). It has been a hell of a rollercoaster ride, which has given all of us many many wonderful moments. Kippis!

By many or none
Yet past only weeps
Passing of one”

“It has been an interesting journey. We have made magic together, but playing or singing in a band must be done whole-heartedly for the music to reach it’s full potential, and with a heavy heart I must admit that it’s not possible for us to do together anymore. I wish you guys all the best in the future, and when it comes to Crimfall, for me the most important thing is, that the music will stay alive. Thank you, lads. You’ll always have a place in my heart.
I also want to thank our dear, dear fans and all the wonderful people we’ve had the honor to work with. Without you guys this journey wouldn’t have been possible!
Keep on rocking, and see you at gigs!
