Nail Within Part Ways with Vocalist

Israeli thrashers Nail Within have officially parted ways with vocalist Yishai Swearts (ex-Betrayer), just mere weeks after the group issued their self-titled debut album.

"I left Nail Within two weeks ago, one day after our release date show of the debut album," stated Swearts in an email statement. "We started the band around two years ago and during that two years I made a massive promotional campaign worldwide which led to recording our debut in Germany by Harris Johns with the help of metal legends as Mille Petrozza, Tomas Lindberg and Robert Gonella and Zeev Tananboim.

Continued the vocalist: "I led the band to record deal with French Listenable Records which released the debut album a month ago. Being in metal bands for 12 years and being a part of the scene for 14 years I learned and got tons of knowledge regarding promotion and how things really work in this buisness."

"When a young band release its debut album it make sense that a differences will appear on several aspects within the band members, the situation led to the point when i couldn't bring my knowledge and experience any longer as a straight result of differences and attitude's differences within the band about how things should be managed."

"Since the recording of our debut album last summer the bass player left the band to concecrate on his other bands and the drummer was a session member from Salem, so before I left we were only three members from the original line-up and now there are two. Because of those differences I felt I have to stick to my truth and reputation and do what I feel is right for me as a musician and person.

"A new band by the name of Moonskin formed last week, the style is darker and more emotional, I will continue the already started path, the debut album will be out in 2004, more details will follow. I want to use this opportunity to thank all those who supported me in Nail Within in one way or another, Zeev Tananboim, Mille Petrozza and Tomas Lindberg which made a dream come true, Roberto Gonella, Harris Johns, Laurent at Listenable Records, The End Records and all the friends, magazines editors, labels, distributors and people who liked the album and supported: you will be remembrered and respected forever!"

Despite setbacks Nail Within are forging on. The group have nearly a full line-up ready, with drummer Ido Levy the most recent addition. Levy was a former member of Camal Jamal, Betrayer and Human Sector. Nail Within hope to have a new vocalist shortly and wish Swearts "the best of luck in all his future projects."
