Eine Ära geht zu Ende, denn wie GLORYHAMMER verkündeten, haben sie sich von Frontmann Thomas “Angus McFife” Winkler überraschent getrennt.

Die Power/True Metaller GLORYHAMMER rund um ALESTORM Boss Chris Bowes haben auf Facebook folgendes Statement zur Trennung von ihrem Sänger gepostet:

“We regret to announce that Thomas Winkler is no longer a member of Gloryhammer.
All upcoming shows (including the UK Tour with Alestorm) will continue as planned, with a new vocalist.
For the Eternal Glory of Dundee.”


Kurz drauf ergänzte man:
“To our fans,

We have been reading all your comments and appreciate there’s a lot of confusion, speculation, and sadness around our last message and we wanted to try and explain why we were so brief.
Obviously we are all sad that it’s come to this, and it’s not the outcome anyone really wanted, but we felt we had no option. We currently don’t want to elaborate any further, out of respect to Tom.
All we can promise you is that we will be back, and we will do our very best to bring you a new vocalist that lives up to your expectations so we can continue to bring you Gloryhammer shows and albums, better than ever.
We want to really thank you for your understanding and kind messages of support, it’s a very sad and difficult time for us all.

Auch Thomas selbst meldete sich bereits zu Wort:
“Dear friends and fans of Gloryhammer,

This morning I received an e-mail from the band, informing me that they want to part ways with me. As a reason they mentioned disagreements on business and organizational matters.

I am at loss of words. The only thing I can say is that I regard this as a bad decision for every party involved – the band as well as myself, and especially the fans. It’s hard to believe that our concert at Bloodstock Festival last Sunday suddenly turns out to be our last show together.

After getting used t this new situation, I promise you that I will use the split as a chance to embark on a quest to new muscial shores in the future, still to be sttled in the rock and metal realm.

In the meantime, I will keep you updated and hope you sta in touch. I appreciate the great support you gave me over the last ten years. Without you, this wouldnt have been the same.

Tom / Angus McFife”
