Guitarist Toby Knapp Abandons Onward Reunion Plans

Former ONWARD guitarist Toby Knapp has released the following statement via his MySpace page:

"I have decided out of respect to the members of the original ONWARD lineup not to resurrect this beast. I feel some new recruits' hearts are not in the right place, and perhaps ONWARD are just not brutal enough for 2008. Of course we all know this is bullshit, and it's a shame we will never know what could have been. ONWARD were not gay power-metalists, ONWARD were progressive heavy metal with no boundaries."

ONWARD officially split up in June 2003 following a parting-of-the-ways with their label, Century Media Records.

Knapp is currently working on a solo project with former INTO ETERNITY vocalist Dean Sternberg.

This explains a lot of my failed attempts at locating recent material (let alone a band site). I remember seeing Knapp throw out a guitar video years ago on the CM site and he showed talent beyond words on that 'beast.' It's a shame, a bloody shame.
