Eye Of Solitude has opted against finding a replacement and will remain a quintet.

In other Eye Of Solitude news, the band is currently in the pre-production stage for a brand new EP to be released later this year. This new EP will be a special project, darker than anything they've done before. The release will serve as gift to their fans and an appetizer for the next full-length, set to see the light of the day in 2015.
