“There are so many people who have to deal with much worse things than I do.”
Norwegian black metal band Satyricon’s frontman, Sigurd Wongraven, has revealed via Instagram that he has been diagnosed with a brain tumour.
The news comes after he was rushed to hospital after getting “extremely sick”, and it was then that doctors discovered a tumour in his head that is “likely benign”.
“I can live with it as long as it does not grow bigger,” he said on his personal Instagram account.
“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.

Wongraven’s outlook is optimistic and it seems although it won’t have any affect on the progress of the band at this stage.
“There are so many people who have to deal with much worse things than I do, so I do not feel sorry for myself. I have a great family, lots of friends, Satyricon, Wongraven Wines and many people who support my endeavours all over the world.
“I will spend the next two weeks trying to get my strength back, then try to starting writing on the new Satyricon again and pick up where I left on all my wine projects.”
