A little late but still a sad day in metal music. On April 9, 2014, the founder and creator of the famous Swedish band TIAMAT Johan Edlund said of his decision to leave the group and posted on his Facebook page the following message :
Quote (Johan Edlund)
I decided to leave the Tiamat. My health and other … Continue way. I say “leave” because it is about me and not about the band. If the rest of the guys decide to go further, well … Full speed ahead. Find a good prominent vocalist, sign a contract with Century Media and forth. But I do not play it anymore, and I do not care, I just wish all the best for the other participants. All papers will be submitted to Anders Lars Roger and in case of need. I do not need this, adult life and so I messed up . Let them try their luck on the other. I will participate in the four planned for the summer festivals. Humble, there are other groups, and in all Tiamat still be ahead! I love you, brothers, and thank you for your support! Kisses!
