Hypocrisy part ways with longtime drummer Reidar Horghagen

Horgh has exited Hypocrisy after 18 years in the band.

Swedish death metal veterans Hypocrisy have announced the departure of drummer Reidar "Horgh" Horghagen, who joined the group in 2004.

The band issued the following statement earlier today (April 5):

"There's a thing you must know. Horgh is no longer part of Hypocrisy. We hope you respect and accept this decision.

"It's not easy for us. We've played together for 18 crazy years filled with music, tours and friendship. So many countries, so many songs, and so many gigs with Horgh on stage with us. It's the end of a long interesting chapter, and the beginning of a new one.

"We are grateful to Horgh, this great musician and great man, for all we have achieved together. Also, we'd like to pass the message from him:

"'I want to take this opportunity to thank the fans for the great support over the years, and I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to meet so many of you as we toured around the world. Thanks to the band and crew for the time we spent together. I wish you all the best for the future.'"

This certainly is shocking, but not as shocking as Cody Rhodes leaving AEW for WWE. As a hardcore AEW fan, I can't help but to feel personally betrayed by Cody. Are there any other pro wrestling fans here that feel the same way?

AEW is like watching a high school musical as opposed to seeing the full on broadway production that is WWE.

Wrestling is for 12 year olds who look up to super heroes Jesus Christ grow up and get laid

Reidar Horghagen could be a decent wrestling name. Sadly with no experience he will have to slum it out in AEW instead of the big leagues of WWE
