“Joris has left HEIDEVOLK. His last show was the Paganfest gig in New York. We want to thank him for everything he has done during the more than ten years that he was a member of the band. We cherish the experiences of the last decade and we wish him all the best for any future music adventure.
His personal message to everyone:
“After ten great years with Heidevolk, new horizons are beckoning me and I feel it is time for a change. I want to thank all involved in Heidevolk for the good times we had, and I want to wish them all the best in their future endeavours. To all the people I met and had the honour of performing for: it has been a pleasure and I am deeply thankful for all the memories. Wæs þu hæl!”
HEIDEVOLK will soon start the search for a suitable replacement for the low vocal parts of the characteristic dual clean vocals. No live shows will be affected. Stand-in vocalist Mickael will take care of the vocal parts for the live shows to come until a new vocalist has been found.”

I am thankful I got to see them perform the last time with him in New York City.
Remember this? Peter Steele in Playgirl, 1995.
This should happen more often.
It’s really not cool that it doesn’t.
It’s pretty common for female B-listers, and these days it’s not even particularly scandalous. Which I’m actually net good with. Because at some point I realized that my longstanding problem with the ubiquity of sexualized women is less about the sexualization per se, and muuuch more about the fact that it’s women ~exclusively, for men, and that that is ubiquitous.
I mean, we could probably stand to ratchet down the constant sexualizing of everyone, but I’m just saying: it’d be nice if it was in fact “everyone.”
I guess I imagine/hope that if men were subject to it too, it’d be less gross overall. :/
wow that comment <3
