Ambush part ways with guitarist Adam Hagelin and have finished recording new album ‘Infidel’
And then there were four! Ambush guitarist and band co-founder Adam Hagelin has left the group after a run of almost seven years. The group released two full-length albums — Firestorm (2014) and Desecrator (2015) — with Hagelin. The remaining Ambush band members are lead vocalist Oskar Jacobsson, guitarist Olof Engqvist, bassist Ludwig Sjöholm and drummer Linus Fritzson.
The following message was posted on Ambush‘s Facebook page earlier today: (with slight edits):
“Almost 7 years ago Ambush was started by 5 friends with a mutual love for beer, mischief and, of course, Heavy Metal. Today 5 turns into 4 as our beloved brother Adam has decided to leave the band. Even though Adam will not be with us on stage anymore the memories of all good times, bad times and all the stupid shit we’ve done together will remain forever.
Statement from Adam: “Dear Killers.
Time has now come for me to leave the band. This journey has truly been amazing and I will remember every single moment for the rest of my life. Thanks to every single one of you who has come to our shows, bought our merch and everyone that’s listening to our music.
The new album Infidel is recorded and I am confident it will rock your socks off, you’re welcome!
Ambush will never die!
Nothing will ever replace Adam‘s personality since he truly is one of a kind. We wish our brother Adam all the best in the future!
