Andrea Meyer Haugen, who made guest appearances on Cradle of Filth's 1994 debut, The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh, and Satyricon's Nemesis Divina, and also known for releasing music under the names Andrea Nebel, Nebelhexë and Hagalaz' Runedance has died. She was one of four women killed in a bow and arrow attack in Kongsberg, Norway on October 13th.
Meyer was the ex-wife of Emperor guitarist Tomas "Samoth" Haugen. They have one daughter, Alva.
Cradle Of Filth frontman / founder Dani Filth has shared the following message via social media:
"R.I.P. Andrea Meyer.
Andrea guested on our debut album, The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh, and also modelled and danced for us on stage as well as presiding over ritual back in our formative years.
She will be sadly missed and our deep felt love and sympathies go out to her kith and kin."
Espen Andersen Bråthen, 37, has been charged with the murders of four women and one man in the attack that occurred in Kongsberg on October 13th. Sky News issued a statement saying, "Police say they believe the suspect targeted people at random in the attack – at a Co-op supermarket and other locations in Kongsberg – before he was arrested on the street."
Bråthen, a Muslim convert, has been detained in a medical facility pending psychiatric evaluation. Police inspector Per Thomas Omholt described him as "'not very social" and told the media that "all the indications are that he chose his victims at random" and acted alone.
