I obviously wish them all the best, keep it that way and much more, I'll miss you guys..

Sincerely thank u all

"Dear friends, it's with a heavy heart that I announce my decision to leave Benighted.
During these 6 years, I spent incredible moments, completely crazy, that I will never forget.
But I realize now that I don't have enough energy to keep going with this insane rhythm between my job, no personal time and the decision of the band not to slow it down. I wish them all the best of course and I will miss you, guys.
I want to thank all the amazing people I met on the road during this adventure, it's a very long list but I think of the fans first, you are crazy !!!
Thank you all, sincerely! See you soon !"
