God Dethroned Is Calling it Quits

I've seen this band mentioned quite a bit over the years but have never listened to much. But I'm sure there are people that have enjoyed their brand of death metal so here is the farewell quote from founder Henri Sattler.

"2011 is GOD DETHRONED's final year in existence.

"We could have spent another year in a tour bus because the amount of offers was endless, but I just don't feel like touring anymore.

"People told me to take a break for a year or maybe two, but as I'm an 'all-or-nothing-at-all' type of person, I decided to call it quits.

"Not immediately, but in December of this year we will definitely play our last show. That's gonna be at the Eindhoven Metal Meeting in Holland.

"I'm very proud of what we achieved with the band, but the time has come for new challenges.

"I would like to thank all of our fans for their support for all these years."

So there you have it. They released an album last November and this tour is not only in support of but apparently now a farewell tour. Going over the Wikipedia article on them I can say I'd be pretty tired of having to revamp and revive the band over and over again to and then endure the months of touring. Good luck to the guys on their future endeavors.
