Official statement from Arcturus :
A lot of rumours have been going around after our gig in Melbourne. Simen opened the concert with the words "Welcome to the last Arcturus-show ever". This is a decision we made some time ago. We all have a lot of things going on in our carreers and our lives, and therefore can not find the time to continue working with this band.
We are humble and grateful to all the people that have supported and loved us over the years.
Steinar Sverd Johnsen
Knut Magne Valle
Started as an atmospheric black metal side-project of Sverd and Hellhammer, who were also playing in a death metal band called Mortem (Nor). Later on, they evolved into an avantgarde band.
Øyvind Hægeland left the band on January 5, 2005, due to work commitments.
Simen Hestnæs officially joined Arcturus as a full time member on January 15, 2005
