Memoriam Splits With Drummer Andy Whale

British death metal supergroup Memoriam, which is comprised of members of Bolt Thrower, Benediction and Cerebral Fix, has announced that they will part company with drummer Andy Whale after two shows in Germany at the end of this month. A statement from the band reads as follows:

“Those who know Andy will know he is a fiercely proud family man and father. He wants to be with the first love of his life, which is his partner and children, more and we cannot see a better and more admirable reason for a band departure. We are sure that Andy will continue playing in the future but we think he may well follow his more punk routes than death metal. This is not an acrimonious departure and we are sure that in the future he will jump behind the kit again with Memoriam on stage for a bit of a bash!

“So, on the 28th and 29th of September in Germany (Erfurt and Oberhausen), Andy will be doing his last live shows with Memoriam. So those that can, please come along and enjoy the events, join our party, have fun and give Andy a right good send-off. All other shows will still go ahead, but for now, let’s all wish Andy well in whatever endeavour he chooses to move on with.

“We have achieved so much in such a short time together as a band and our love for you will never diminish. Our love and respect, always.”

British progressive/alternative hybrid Oceans have revealed their new single “Skin”. The song is taken from their upcoming EP Far From Composure which will be released on March 13th.

The band commented “The song ‘Skin’ is a reflection of living day to day life with an atopic skin condition, and the self-confidence issues it can cause. ‘Skin’ talks of looking into the future and looking past the harder times and in an ideal world, would help to raise awareness for atopic conditions as they are very overlooked by doctors, yet from experience they cause a lifetime of discomfort.”

“Hey everyone, Joe here with some news for you all. Within the Ruins and Tim have decided to part ways due to some recent and ongoing health issues. This is a tough one for all of us, and as saddened as we are to no longer have Tim with us, a new chapter begins.

April 19th – Brooklyn, NY at Kingsland

– Tim
Hello my friends, it is with an extremely heavy heart that I announce my departure from Within The Ruins. I want to be very clear that this split is mutual and I have nothing but love for my brothers and vise versa. I am at a point in my life that won’t allow me to tour anymore, and touring is a huge part of this band. It breaks my heart, but it is what it is. Over the last ten years I have had the absolute privilege/pleasure to tour the world and record 5 amazing releases with the most driven and talented musicians on the fucking planet.

These guys are more than just friends and bandmates, they are my brothers. Through ups and downs, lineup changes, a van flip that nearly killed us, and countless beers/good times we are bonded forever. These experiences, memories, and friends I’ve made along the way are things that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I ask that you all continue to support my guys just as you always have while I was in the band.

Thank you to our manager Scott Lee and Entertainment One / Goodfight for always having our backs and keeping our best interest in mind. Thank you to my friends, family, and my woman for supporting me while I lived out my dream. And of course I would like to thank our fans for their undying support and love. You guys kept me pushing forward the whole time.

I want to be clear that I am not done making music, so keep an eye out for projects from me in the future. I am excited for what lies ahead and am ready for this new chapter in my life.

Let’s get fucking crazy one more time!

– Steve Tinnon
I am very excited to announce that I am now singing for Within The Ruins! These guys have been great friends to me and my previous band for nearly a decade, and after two years of no longer touring or being in a band I’ve been given a second chance to do what I love again. I want to thank Tim for giving me his blessing on this moving forward. I’ve got big shoes to fill and I won’t let you down! I’m extremely honored to be part of a group of such talented musicians, and I can’t wait to start this next chapter of the band’s career. See you all soon!

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard Debut New Song “Eagduru” From Upcoming New Split

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard debut a new track from their forthcoming split with Irish doom band Slomatics.

The band commented about the split that: “Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard have been big fans of Slomatics for years. We have kind of obdurate tastes when it comes to heavy music so we like bands that fly their own flag and in our opinion Slomatics do just that. After chatting to Dave (Majury) it was pretty clear that both bands had a lot in common and when somebody brought up the idea of a collaboration it was a no brainer. We spent a lot of time discussing the content of this record and didn’t want to do just another split record. Although Split records are great for underground bands like us, we just wanted to make it ‘special’. Kind of an early 70s prog ethic to it. We all enjoyed the whole process and I’m not alone in thinking we’d like to do more collaborations in the future with more collaboration between the 2 bands. That’s if we can find the time.”
