Acheron Calls It Quits And Announces Farewell Shows

Blackened death metallers Acheron have checked in with the following announcement about deciding to call it day:

"After 22 years of existence, black/death/thrash metal band Acheron are calling it quits! The band has released 5 original full length cds, 3 mini-cds, 1 cover-tribute cd and a number of other underground releases. Acheron will end on a familiar note by doing one last run of 'Rites of the Black Mass' shows until January 1st, 2010. After that Acheron will be done for good! (No more shows or albums.)

"So keep an eye out for select shows that they will be appearing at this year, because it will be the last time you get to see them live! The line-up for the final shows will be Vincent Crowley (Vocals/Bass), Art Taylor (Guitar), Eric Stewart (Guitar) and Scott Pletcher (Drums)."

You can also hear Acheron's music via the band's official MySpace page.

I hear you post 1.

I thought 2010 looked pretty bright, but there has been a lot of bad things so far.

Wow! Great run guys! You have made a big impact on the blackened death metal scene. I hope to catch ya'll on this tour before I have to add you to the list of bands I wished I'd seen.

I'm definitely saddened to hear this, I got into Acheron via the ROTBM album and have loved their stuff ever since. Come to think of it (and agreeing with the other posts on here) 2010 really has been a sh**ty year!

I remember blasting it in the common room when empty and just going nuts. Good times.

CD wise this band was not that good. But they killed it live the times I've seen them and they will be missec.
