Front man Filip Robertsson of Horns of Anguish has issued the following announcement about the band calling it a day:

"Hello everyone.

"I am very sorry to say that Horns Of Anguish broke up yesterday. There are plenty of reasons behind this, the main being that we want the band to head in different directions. Not musically, but business-wise. It's become more and more of a one-man-show with only one of us taking care of business, promotion, t-shirt sales, bookings and stuff in general. I always intended to take this band as far as possible and the last couple of years I've spent all my spare-time and money trying to accomplish this. However, I lost a lot of spirit now that it seems I'm the only one who wanted this.

"It has come to the point where we've both lost our enthusiasm completely. It's even gone so far that we can't stand the thought of having to do more gigs, since it wouldn't be honest. And one thing is for sure, HoA has always been about being honest and true to ourselves and our listeners. All booked and planned shows will be cancelled and we will not do any more recordings. As I said, I'm very sorry and deeply disappointed, but this is what has to happen. There are no hard feelings between us band members, we just want different things.

"I will continue responding to interview requests, questions and mail in general, just write me here or at contact [a] hornsofanguish [dot] com. Sorry to everyone who is disappointed with this, Kampas and to the bands that we were supposed to play with during this fall/winter. And a HUGE thanks to everyone who ever supported us, helped us or just enjoyed our music. Special thanks to Kampas for releasing 'Barriers' and to Markus and Andy who made the recording possible.

"So, how about the future you may ask? Well, I will take a short break from music but I can assure you that you will find me working on a new project soon! I am also willing to do stand-ins both live and in the studio for anyone that finds it suiting. Morgan will probably keep playing with his side-project 'With Soldier'."

This is really lame. I was hoping to get to see these guys evolve into something awesome. And plus they were originally called "Grandma's Vomit," which is the most metal thing ever.
