That kinda sucks. If anything else, at least Seven gets to show more of his drumming abilities. This is kinda of suprising because they just released a new CD a couple months back.

I agree. There was only one song by them I liked, and that whole attempt they did in the last album to go for that whole Russian Communist 1940's look didn't help matters.

Kali, metal is not a kingdom, it's just music. These guys didn't suck that hard.

Is it really that big of a deal, you would think reaching commercial success would warrant an annoucement of disbanding. This is just press they don't deserve. www.welovemetal.com

It's because these guys are being led around by their collars! The Russian motif, that hair do on the gay looking guys head in the picture, the Hot Topic garb, it's all controlled by some suit in a penthouse office in New York that thinks he knows what the kids want! They know nothing! It's all B.S.! It's time to relieve them of their duties. Play what you feel!

The dude on the left looks like he just got kicked in the a$$. The dude next to him appears to be the one that kicked him.
