Avulsed Disbanding After Lineup Changes

Update: the band has now stated this was all a bad joke. Read the update at this location.

The brutal 23 year ride is finally coming to an end: Spanish death metal outfit Avulsed is calling it quits. The band had this to say in an online announcement:

"It is with great sadness that we must announce the end of the Avulsed career after so many years. We know this caught you all by surprise, but some things happened during the last weeks inside the band and we couldn’t overcome with it.

"The main reason started with Erik Raya, a great drummer and a better person, but he didn’t really fit in the band’s dynamic, so we decided to fire him from Avulsed. Two of the members (Juancar & Cabra) weren’t happy with this solution and tired of having two drummer changes during the last three years, they finally decided to throw the towel and leaving for once and all.

"Tana, whose sentimental union to Cabra was always too strong, decided to leave as well, so this left Dave Rotten completely alone. For a moment, he wanted to keep Avulsed as a one-man band, but this would be too much work, so he will concentrate on his other musical projects from now on.

"We want to thank all our countless fans around the world for being so loyal during all this time and you were the main reason for us to keep it going on through all these years. Avulsed was born as an untrendy death metal band and died as an untrendy death metal band. We did lots of friends during our way, so to you all… KEEP IT BRUTAL!!"

Been meaning to write a Sunday Old School about these guys for a while now since we haven't covered a band from Spain before. Shame to hear they're breaking up.
