Hate Eternal drummer Derek Roddy has announced his departure from the band. Roddy has issued the following statement:

"Real life situations have forced me to resign as a member of Hate Eternal. I can on longer afford the expenses of touring. I have put much thought into this for the last several years and kept coming to this conclusion. I must be able to afford the quaility of life that I enjoy, and thus far... touring in extreme bands has not allowed me to do anything other than go into a financial hole. Every tour has put me in finanancial burden. Now, I'm not complaining (because I never expected to "make it" playing metal) But, I cannot continue to pay to do it either!!! Too expensive. Besides, I value the scene and would rather give my music away than be insulted at the end of the year with a $600.00 royalty check. This, in no way, means I won't be recording and releasing extreme music. In fact, you will hear more from me (as I now have the freedom to do what I want when I want). I wish Hate Eternal the best of luck."

That's a shame, Derek Roddy is amazing. Hate Eternal will live on, and Derek Roddy will do something that will blow us all away...its still a shame though, Hate Eternal will never be the same.

Thats crazy, ohh well he was awsome, lets just see if Joey Jordison can fill the spot like the band says he will. Dont know how they ever managed to get him to be the new drummer, but we shall see.
