Northern New Jersey based Will Killmore, drummer Charlie Corletta has decided to leave the band citing personal and creative differences. The following personal Statment was issued by Charlie on the bands Facebook:
"I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone including the boys in WKM for a lifetime of memories and experiences that I will cherish forever. It has been a unbelievable journey being a part of a band that in my opinion is one of the best new metal bands out there today. I say that with confidence because I see and dealt with just how much passion, time and sacrifice has gone into this band."
"At this time I wish I could say I'm kidding but the truth is I will no longer be continuing my musical career with Will Killmore. I'm still perusing music professionally and plan on remaining active with other music projects."
"I will carry out my musical obligations to the band and our fans by performing three more shows this summer. Details for those shows will be made available on www.willkillmore.com shortly. This will be a nice way to close a chapter of my life on a positive note."
"Again, thank you James, Joe, Brian, and Steve for making a dream come true! You have proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that with enough balls, imagination, and ambition five strangers could create an unstoppable force. I wish you all the best of luck and look forward to the remaining three gigs," said Corletta. More...

New York City metal band Severed has recently completed their self-titled new album, which will be released on May 9th. The band will be also hosting a CD release show on this day.
The band discusses the new album, “As any band who lives to make their music known, we've put blood, sweat and tears into our new CD. We feel the music directly mirrors us as a group. The album is a raw representation of Severed's influences and personalities, and as such we've decided on self-titling it. There's no hiding behind fluff or concept. Take it or leave it, what you hear is who we are.”
“Our new lineup is the most solid it's ever been. It enabled strong technical performances, a diversity of ideas and a deep, heavy sound to be the foundation upon which our album could be built. We're especially excited about the production quality, thanks to John Machado of Five Towns College. A lot of independent bands waste a great deal of time and money on projects with weak production. That's a trap we took efforts to avoid. Working with John was invaluable to getting the sound we wanted. The same can be said for the artwork, a creation of Eliran Kantor, who has done work for many bands including Testament, Gwar, and Sigh. Like all of his art, our CD cover image was masterfully executed and exciting to see in print. We are also extremely excited about the guest appearances on the disc by Ray Mazzola of Full Blown Chaos, and Jorge Rosado of Merauder. Their support means a great deal to us, and their performances add a very dynamic feel to the songs they appear in.” More...
