Breakups & Shakeups


The end come after nearly three decades.

Dark Fortress

German melodic black metal practitioners Dark Fortress have officially called it quits after almost three decades as a band. Fortunately, things ended amicably; Dark Fortress announced at the end of 2022 that they would complete one final tour in May 2023 before hanging their boots up.

They posted a message on their Facebook page thanking fans for their years of support.

"???? R.I.P. Dark Fortress 1994-2023 ????

"Hard to believe it’s done. We are humbled about the overwhelming response to our final tour! Nearly all shows were absolutely packed with the most loyal, most passionate and most far-traveled fans imaginable. Seeing all of you go crazy every night, some of you at multiple shows (you know who you are!) has been a mind-blowing experience and a humongous final present to us, and we thank you from the bottom of our rotten souls for reminding us of the legacy we’re leaving behind after three decades of refusing to quit.

"We also bow to our dear friends from The Spirit and Asphagor, our excellent crew, our world-class sessionists and ex-members, the bus drivers, and the local staff at the venues who often went above and beyond to take care of us.

"We couldn’t have wished for a better way to end this massive chapter in our lives, and we’ll never forget the last two weeks thanks to all of you.

"Forever Yours,

"Asvargr, Morean, V Santura and Phenex"

The members of Dark Fortress are all involved with other musical projects, so it won't be the last time we hear from them.
