German death metal band Orphalis has posted the following message online about going on hiatus:
"There are kinda sad news on the Orphalis camp: We sadly have to tell you that Orphalis needs to take a little break at the moment - the reason is that Kai, our drummer has some personal and familiar problems, so he doesn't have the time for rehearsing/shows/studio and all that stuff.
"That doesn't mean that he will leave the band or breaks up completely, he just needs a break - we will also keep rehearsing with some midi drums to work on our material for the 2nd album which will be released on Amputated Vein Records.
"So we have to cancel all of this year's shows and we have to postpone the studio dates until next year - sorry for everyone who wanted to catch us live this year on the Show with Misery Index in Cologne, the Metal Frenzy Open Air, or on Berlin Deathfest We promise to keep you updated and we'll come back with the most heaviest stuff you can imagine!"
