Haste The Day Announces Plans To Disband In 2011

American metalcore act Haste The Day has announced its decision to disband. The group has posted the following statement:

"This is a very difficult announcement to make, but Haste The Day will be doing its final tour February – March 2011. It has been an incredible 10 years and we want to thank all of our amazing fans who have stuck with us through all of our changes and growth as a band. If it weren’t for all of you, this band would have been nothing.

"There are many reasons why HTD is ending, however we mainly feel as though we have created the best music we can and believe it is now time for us to move on to the next stage of our lives. I remember when this band started a decade ago, we wanted to be like the Solid State/Tooth and Nail Records bands we grew up idolizing.

"We wanted to use our passion for heavy music and the love that God put in us to be a light in the underground scene; letting people know they are loved, important, forgiven no matter what, and capable of using their gifts to serve their fellow man. I never imagined that we would be able to put out five full length albums, tour the world, and develop so many meaningful relationships with the people who came to our shows. Without your support, this wouldn’t have been possible.

"The 12 Days of Christmas will be in cities that we will not hit on our final tour so please come out to say goodbye this December. For our final tour, which will also be amazing, we are bringing our friends in My Children My Bride, The Chariot, and A Plea for Purging along for our Farewell Tour all across the US and Canada.

"We will be playing a great selection of songs from all of our records, including all of the fan favorites, rarely played songs, and a few songs that you guys keep begging us to play live. I have no doubt that this will be the best tour we’ve ever done and we cannot wait to see all of you and give you a hug goodbye.

"We love you all, thank you for everything you’ve been to us, and we can’t wait to see you for the last time in 2011! We encourage you to keep your inner flame burning and show it off to the rest of the world!

"Much Love to you all,
Mike & Haste the Day"

now it will be the rise of (the ridiculously termed) the so-called "djent"-core, bands influenced by meshuggah's polyrhythmic and metallic-sounding style, but mix it with deathcore mostly or sometimes metalcore. i know it sounds rather horrible, like within the ruins, veil of maya, born of osiris (somewhat), etc., and those alrdy "making it", but using ALOT of clean vox like textures, tesseract, periphery, and so on, but there are some rlly good heavy ones that are do some amazing grooves, like after the burial and, my personal fav, vildhjarta (the "h" is silent). i rlly think the latter will change the way we think of metal. i can't wait for their debut next yr.

I was never a huge fan of Haste The Day but I did see them live and they put on a pretty good show.

metalrox: veil is just to flat for me. i love music, metal generally, that's has a thick sound. and the vox are rather a tad bit annoying. and born of osiris are just all over the fvckin' place and just aren't rlly that talented imo.

Thrashattheheart:
If a genre of music you love so much can only get more fans by other genre's dying that's pretty sad. Although I don't think any of the -core's are dying, but it sounds like that's what you're implying. I know having a wide range of taste is not in your brain but I personally like both heavy metal and Metalcore and don't want either of them to die off.
