Pennsylvania metallers, SeVer, issue the following update on their MySpace page:
"SeVeR would like to officially announce the departure of singer Matt Watson from the lineup. These decisions are always the most difficult to make in the life of a band, but sometimes necessary to ensure what is best for the band and its future. We still think of Matt as a good friend and wish him well in future projects." More...

SEVER, the new project from former NOTHINGFACE members Tom Maxwell (guitar), Tommy Sickles (drums), and Jerry Montano (bass), plus former SKRAPE frontman Billy Keeton, have been continuing to work on new material as of late and will soon be making their live debut. Here's what Maxwell recently had to say on the matter:
"...We've been doing nothing but writing and recording songs. Now that we've reached up toward 30 songs, we're going to be turning up the heat from now on. Jerry has one more tour to do with Danzig and will be back in time for rehearsals and our first show in March. Which btw is on March 21st at Fletchers in Baltimore w/ DFD."
The group, who were previously known as COLDWHITECHRIST, are not likely to continue using the name SEVER however and are thought to be deciding upon a new moniker for themselves.
According to an article on toledoblade.com, Toledo bands Sole Remedy, Sever, Sledge, and New Found Element will be paying a final tribute to their hero at Howard's Club H in Bowling Green tomorrow (Jan. 8). The show will raise money for the families of those who were shot at the Alrosa Villa nightclub in Columbus the same night Abbott was fatally shot Dec. 8 while performing with Damageplan.
The cover charge for the 9 p.m. show is $4, but anyone wearing any Pantera or Damageplan clothing or logos will be admitted for $3. Howard's donated the club for the night and other than paying a sound man, all the proceeds will go the Dimebag Darrell Memorial Fund for the families of the employees of the Columbus club where Abbott was murdered last month.
