Sigurd “Satyr” Wongraven från det norska blackmetalbandet Satyricon har diagnostiserats med hjärntumör.
Sångaren avslöjade nyligen sin sjukdom via sitt Instagramkonto, där han skrev följande meddelande: “I got extremely sick eight days ago and was rushed to hospital. Scans have shown that there is a blind passenger in my head. Most likely it is benign. I can live with it as long as it does not grow bigger. Removing it is extremely complicated and should only be done if it grows into a size where it is a matter of life and death.
We all get our set of cards and this happened to be one of mine. There are so many people who have to deal with much worse things that I do, so I do not feel sorry for myself. I have a great family, lots of friends, Satyricon, Wongraven and many people who support my endeavors all over the world. I will spend the next two weeks trying to get my strengt back, then try to starting writing on the new Satyricon again and pick up where I left on all my wine projects.”
Vi får hoppas att tumören verkligen är godartad och att Satyr snart kommer på fötter igen, även om två veckor kanske låter lite väl optimistiskt.
