The black metal band, Slechtvalk has announced that their drummer, Grimbold, or his real name Jan-Paul Lucas, is to depart the band. The band stated that his departure did not come as a surprise, due to lack of motivation. There seems to be no ill will towards him and the band even thanked Grimbold for the last 15 years of his contributions for the band. The band is currently looking for a replacement for Grimbold. The band plans to record a new album and perform a couple of tours by next year.
