Marduk not too long ago parted methods with bassist Joel Lindholm after Lindholm blatantly threw a Nazi salute throughout a set at Incineration Fest. On the time, Marduk solely commented that “following a wide range of insupportable stage antics by a really drunk Joel at Incineration Fest final week, he has vacated his place within the band. Our outdated buddy and bass participant Devo has agreed to step in on a brief foundation, so that is unlikely to have an effect on any of upcoming exhibits.”
Now Marduk has supplied a barely longer clarification, saying that Lindholm was drunk and had made “a number of makes an attempt” through the years to get away with ingesting underneath the radar. Marduk mentioned they have been unaware of what Lindholm was doing on stage, and that bassist Simon Wizén can even be stepping in alongside Devo to fill the hole of their lineup.
Marduk additionally mentions a “striptease” on stage, which I believe is when Lindholm took off his shirt in the course of the present? That, or there’s an entire totally different video from that evening that we’re not conscious of.
“Slight change of plans: Simon Wizén (Valkyrja) is dealing with bass for us at Thronefest this coming weekend. Devo will doubtless play the remaining competition exhibits, aside from Brutal Assault.
“The current developments have sparked blended opinions, which is honest sufficient. Nonetheless, it bears mentioning that Joel‘s escapades in London have been the end result of a string of questionable behaviour.
“Regardless of repeated guarantees to respect the alcohol ban he acquired shortly after becoming a member of the band, Joel made a number of makes an attempt to avoid this by ingesting covertly. Famously, Incineration Fest being the newest instance.
“We have been unaware of his varied provocations between songs – in addition to the concluding striptease – till that video surfaced the morning of Steelfest. Watching the primary ten minutes was fairly sufficient for everybody concerned to conclude that Joel‘s time with Marduk had come to an finish.
