We are proud to announce that we have finally found a new guitar player! His name is Richard Wikstrand, and some of you might know him from his time with Crome Division. He played with us at Livestock at Alvdal a couple of weeks ago, and has been working with us for a while before that.

Good News - Patrick joins Madder Mortem

We've been aware that Odd was thinking about leaving the band since winter 2010, and have been looking for a possible replacement.

After much consideration regarding who could fill his shoes, fit in with the rest of us socially and be a creative, fifth input to the band, we only came up with one name. Luckily for us, he has now entered our ranks full-time. Patrick Scantlebury is our new permanent guitarist. He has already made one live appearance with us in our hometown at the NORF-festival.

Some might know him as one of the founders of Frantic Bleep. He was our guitar-tech and merchandiser on the Opeth tour in 2003, and he also filled in for Odd on a couple of gigs in 2005. We all went to school with him at Tynset, and BP and Pat has played together in various constellations. We're already busy writing more new material with Patrick, and it feels like we've got a true chemistry.

We welcome him to the Madder family and hope you'll do the same.

Again it's a fresh start for us.

Bad News - Odd leaves Madder Mortem

Odd has, after much pondering, left Madder Mortem, and it was a very tough decision. We sincerely thank him for all the music, magic, great times, blood, sweat and tears we've shared since he joined the band in 2003.

It's always hard to see people go, but times do change for all of us. Neither Desiderata or especially Eight Ways would've sounded the same without his characteristic style of playing and musical sensibility. We wish him all the best and will still remain close friends.

Agnete, BP, Mads & Tormod.
