Silent Scythe Disbands

The following message has been posted by Tommi (Guitars) on Silent Scythe's official website:

SILENT SCYTHE IS NO MORE! Silent Scythe has been disbanded due to commitment-issues. Unfortunately this means that "Born Into Bondage" won't see the light of day. I wish to thank the fans who actually believed in this crazy circus, contrary to some bandmembers. It feels strange to write this when we were just voted best new band of 2004 in brazilian metalmagazines. But, hey, I've certainly learned not to put this much trust in someone elses hands again. Before I forget: We would like to thank the people who came to our last gig may 20th, YOU GUYS KICKED ASS!!! So this is Tommi, Fredrik, Oge, Peter & Johan signing off!

I travel within
Let the longest journey begin
Dissect what I feel
Till there´s nothing more to conceal

Stare into the cold abyss
It stares back into you
The shackels of denying bliss
Repress the haunting truth

Dreams come true but only for a few
You are free to do as they tell you
You are free to be: Born Into Bondage

Cheers! C'ya under the table
