Massacre Records has issued the following announcement about German act Macbeth parting ways with its vocalist:
"Well, not a good way to end the year 2010, but on New Year's Eve Macbeth announced that they are parting ways with their vocalist Olli. The band stated that it was difficult within the last two years to work together and that it was even not possible in the end.
"Since this had negative effects on them working on the new album, they decided to part ways. Don't be afraid the decision won't change the music and style of Macbeth, because Olli didn't compose or wrote the songs, according to the band. The band is now searching for a new vocalist.
