One Man Army and the Undead Quartet Guitarist Quits
One Man Army and the Undead Quartet guitarist, Mikael Lagerblad, has left the band. The band comments:
"On the first of April 2009 our longtime friend and bandmember Mikael Lagerblad decided to quit the band. His thoughts has been towards this decision for a while now even though we haven´t seen it coming. But being in this band is of course all about free will. If you don´t feel comfortable in being in a band that plays extreme music and loving every minute of it, then you shouldn´t be in the band.
"Mikael has written a lot of good songs for this band but one should know that his contribution only has covered around 35-40% of the total Army catalouge. That means that we without doubt will be able to continue writing new great Army stuff for the future, despite this setback.
I mean, for example, 95% of the first album "21st century killing machine" was written without him so this situation isn´t something new and scary that will bring us down. It´s of course a sad thing but not the end of the world.
"Mikael has been a big part of this band and he will surely be missed and we wish him the best ofluck with his other projects. C-ya Mike!, keep on shredding the beast and the harlot.
"For the next couple of months We have brought a session guitarist into the band that will help us out during some of the already booked shows that we have. So if you are worried that we will start canceling shows you should stop worrying. One man army doesn´t quit. Setbacks like this always makes this killing machine stronger and stronger. We will play as much as possible for the Grim Tales touring cycle so c´mon, keep those bookings coming.
Our session guitar player is a guy named Rune Foss who also plays with both Marek and Mattias in their other band Reclusion. He is a great guitarplayer and a great guy on the personal level so doing a couple of shows with him throughout Europe will be a blessing. Mattias will handle all the solos at the moment. He is originally a lead guitarist and this task will come very natural for him. We definitely have an interesting time in front of us.
"But of course, in time we will need a new fulltime member so this is the chance for YOU to proove that you belong in this great band. Write an email and apply for the job will ya!! email@example.com is where you need to send your application and one thing should be mentioned:
We only pay attention to swedish applications. This for obvious reasons. It´s kinda hard to rehearse with people
that lives a million miles away from you. Lead or rhythm. Contact us anyway if you belive you are great in what you do.
"ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE!!!
"See you on the road"
"After three albums and almost five years in the band I have decided to quit. It has been a great time and I´m proud of the music that we have created.
"Even though One Man Army has been a big part of my life, I feel I´m ready to move on. During the last couple of months my motivation and inspiration has not been at the high level it used to be.
"It might sound like a cliché but there´s no bad blood between us and I´m comfortable with my
"I want to thank the fans, the bands we have toured with, the companies and all the people that
are involved in the band.
"Last but not least I want to thank Johan, Robert, Marek and Mattias for the great time and I wish all you guys the best in the future!"
