From http://www.moonfrost.net/mayhem/mayhem.htm : It is OFFICIAL, Maniac has parted ways with Mayhem. Effective immediately, Attila Csihar is once again the frontman for Mayhem. Here is the official statement direct from the band: Maniac is out of the band and back in comes Attila Csihar. He will from now on take Maniacs role as a front figure with immediate effect. All though the rumors have been flourishing over the past months, nothing was decided until now. The reason for this change lies in a more private matters, but it also deals with Maniacs inability to tour. "Maniac was, and will always be a part of our legacy, and it has been an honor to work with him for the last 10 years. Respect! This could turn out rather cool.
