After months of speculation, UK metal band Stampin' Ground (Century Media Records, Thorp Records) has confirmed their imminent demise. The band has issued the following statement:

"We slogged our hearts out for 11 years; harder than any band we've ever met, and we loved every minute of it. It's been the greatest ride and were proud to have been part of it, but all good things come to an end and so has SG. This has nothing to do with musical differences, personal stuff or any other lame ass excuse you've heard a million times, truth is we just feel the time is right to hang it up. We never set out to win the world title, we just wanted to go the distance for 15 rounds and get some good punches in."

Prior to disbanding, the group will embark upon one final UK tour. Here's the info:

10/15 Manchester @ Damnation Festival
10/26 Newcastle @ Trillians
10/27 Sheffield @ Corporation
10/28 Merthyr, Wales @ Merthyr Studio Bar
10/29 London @ Islington Carling Academy

check out "a new darknes upon us" from 2003, then ask why you're so lame for not ever having heard of them, probably just because they aren't sweedish or have as tans as nice american bands.

I cant believe that these people aint heard of them.... they were one of the first UK bands that merged hardcore an metal back when nu metal was the trend way before the whole metalcore scene exploded, they were in the UK scene which at the time had soo much diversity with bands like Earthtone9 and Vacant Stare (unfortunatley these bands are also dead). They were f***in amazin and their aint a band that could touch these guys!!! Its quite sad how some people hadnt heard of them because at one time they WERE the forefront of GOOD BRITISH METAL!!!
