Forgotten Woods’ Member Olav Berland Passed Away


Today we are saddened to announce the heartbreaking news that Black Metal legend, Joyless, and Forgotten Woods member, Olav Berland passed away on July 11, 2022, at the age of 59.

May the amazing artist rest in heaven; we send our deepest sympathies to his loved ones, family, friends, and fans.

The tragic death news of Olav has not been confirmed by official sources at this time, but some social media shared it; an account, Pedro Ribeiro, wrote in a statement posted on Twitter, “We recently learned that OLAV BERLAND, who was a musician with Forgotten Woods and Joyless, passed away on July 11. Magnificent creator of musical atmospheres, desolate and dark.”

Beloved Berland was a guitar, bass, and drums player on famous bands such as Joyless and Forgotten Woods for years and starred there as a great musician.

Forgotten Woods was a band from Norway that has had a huge influence on the Black Metal scene, more particularly, the Depressive Black Metal scene. Forgotten Woods (FW) was established in Etne, Norway.

The band kicked off its work in 1991 with initial members including Rune Vedaa, Jarle Swahn, and Olav Berland. The band would later introduce Neige, Nylon, Thomas Torkelsen, Roger Staveland, Reinhardt Toresen, as well as Rune Jamne.

Olav Berland Passed Away, But Still Alive in Hearts

Celebrities’ death news always breaks many hearts, but fans kindly remember memories, and their idols are alive in their hearts even after death. Although there is no report about how Olav Berland passed away at this time, some unconfirmed sources spread some rumors.

Some claim he lost his life due to a recent illness.

Our team does not confirm any rumors about the news, though you can be sure that we are attempting our best to find related information about the tragedy and provide the latest updates as soon as possible; but, do not forget that family privacy should be respected.

Forgotten Woods‘ first release is named after the band’s name, “Forgotten Woods” and is undoubtedly rawer than anything else they have published. The stand is great, but they almost go unheard at times because of the oppressive vocals and drums. Overall, not too bad for a demo, though they certainly improve their work through the years.

A fan tweeted in reaction to the passing news, “RIP Olav Sigurd Berland. The mastermind behind Forgotten Woods. Curse Of Mankind was one of the first bm albums I got obsessed with and it still stands up today. Being in communication with these guys (digitally) has been a highlight of recent years.”
