Lord Belial Calls It Quits

Black metal band Lord Belial has issued the following statement on their website:

"LORD BELIAL 1992 - 2009

"Lord Belial has quit all their activities. All future gigs are canceled. We would like to thank all fans, bands we have played with, labels, organizers and everyone involved in the band for the past 17 years!

"The main reason for this is the hearing problem (tinnitus) that has grown into a quite big problem for Micke the last years… The other members in the band were not forced to put an end to the band but instead they mutually agreed that finding another drummer was not a solution for the future.

"Anyhow, if Micke’s hearing will be at least a little bit recovered after a break from music and especially live appearances for some time, we really hope that we can continue where we ended.

"We will not comment or discuss this in emails etc."

Dammit, I just discovered those guys in '04...Their most recent records are brilliant, I still need to crawl my way through their older stuff...Noone can fault their long run at least.

Now Playing: Lord Belial - "Gateway to Oblivion" *sniff, whimper*

I've only heard a couple songs from these guys and I loved both of them. I've been meaning to check them out in depth a bit more, but the stores around here don't carry much black or death metal, unless they're bands that are signed to Century Media or Nuclear Blast.

You guys will truly be missed. Enter the Moonlight Gate is one of my favorite Black Metal Albums. This just sucks, hopefully you guys can reform one day.

what a great way to return by bashing the retarded prick known as he... he... he..., why can't you spell go back to school, and hit the books, more likely on spelling, good point there Jake, how old are you little bast*rd, maybe 11, (talking about he... he... he...) if you don't have anything nice to say shut up, if you hate metal...

GET...
OFF...
THE...
F*CKING...
SITE...

we are against you, your outnumbered, anyway war of hate was a great song, and to the Black Metaller's out there, if you want some good Black Metal, try Acheron, another good band, i own 2 of their albums, Anti-God, Anti-Christ, best song on this album F*ck The Ways of Christ, and Those Who Have Risen, best song on this album is Out of Body, pick these albums up, you won't be disappointed, they are a black metal/death metal hybrid band, and the members are part of The Church of Satan, Vincent Crowley the main one is a reverend of The Church of Satan, they are true Satanists
