After seven years together, and just a few weeks after the release of a new album, Canadian metal band A Perfect Murder has called it quits. The group has issued the following statement:

"A Perfect Murder is officially breaking up. There are a lot of things that could be discussed about but we don't wanna go that way. We'd like to think about all the good things music has bring to us over the last 7 years. We've met a lot of people, made a lot friends, traveled to places that we thought we would never go.

"1 Demo, 2 Ep's and 4 LPs later we are very proud to say that we, A Perfect Murder, has achieved something truly remarkable. We'd like to thanks the Quebec hardcore/Metal scene for all the support since we've started. This, also goes out to everybody that have supported us and helped us out over the last couple of years. Thank you so much.

"To all the great and not-so-great bands that we have played with. Thank you. Thanks to Mike Gaytan from Premonitions of war. You've done so much for us. Thanks to Mike, Manual and the SF Crew for saving our asses on tour more than once. We'll never forget. Thanks for Bouchard's parent for being a member of this band since the beginning, this would have never happen without your help. Never ending love. There are thousands of other people that we would like to thanks but the list would be too big.

"We also wanna thanks Victory Records for having believed in us since we signed with them. Cuz hate them or not, They are the reason why all of you out there know A Perfect Murder. That was a hell of ride. We are very proud of everything we've done. Even the mistakes. We have learn so much. So thanks to everybody once again and keep metal alive. You'll hear from some of us pretty soon."

Richard-- how is this different than any other time in metal history? bands struggle, bands breakup, members die, bands reform....this is part of the cycle. i think the crisis in todays metal scene is the deterioration of the music itself. what sh** a lot of it is.

now playing: artillery - deeds of darkness

Some is good, but there are a lot of posers out there just in it for money. That's not helpin either. I'd get down on my knees and bawl if all my fav bands broke up all of a sudden. Alcohol and drugs are prolly a big factor too...Booze is good, but if used exesivly, then it can cause some major sh**.

the reason they are breaking up is because they were ripped off by the record companies

quite a shame though, their last album was pretty good.....

I hope that they form a new band and that this time it will work out with the record company. I guess the only thing we can do now is accept it.

Currently listening to : Devildriver : the whole last kind words album...it kicks serious ass.

Their last album is OK, but it's hard to bring the southern metal sound out of canada. even if the singer was from tennessee. probably why they broke up: they have been tinkering with the sound since inception, and they never fully found that sound they were seeking
