Infernaeon Members Fire Each Other; Lineup Up In The Air
Yesterday, several metal news site reported that Infernaeon had parted ways with vocalist Brian Werner. In a situation similar to the Gorgoroth debacle where two sides of the band insisted the other had been fired, other sources are now claiming that Werner is carrying on the band's name and the bassist and keyboardist have actually been fired.
The following statement from an Infernaeon Facebook profile was quoted by several sites yesterday:
"After much forethought, Infernaeon has decided to part ways with our singer Brian Werner. He was planning on leaving the band after our appearance at the Babylon Rising Festival in Puerto Rico, and it was decided afterwards that it would be beneficial if he carried out those plans. Infernaeon is in no way breaking up, and we thank our fans for their continued support."
Another Facebook profile bearing the same name, and apparently run by Brian Werner himself, has now been updated with the following string of messages:
"Infernaeon fires bassist and keyboardist for unprofessionalism after the show in puerto rico.
"In response to this page being hacked that is definitely NOT the case, certain member that were recently fired are just starting unneeded drama instead of having some integrity. Fact is i do find it funny how a group of people who werent even on every album or where never on ANY record contract feel they have a right to a name that was well established before they ever joined the band!
"Contrary to a bullshit press release that went out yesterday i in fact will not be quitting the band by any means. That press release was sent to blabbermouth by terminated members who have 0 legal standing to use the name Infernaeon of ANY kind. Fact is i am the sole owner of ALL intellectual property rights, artwork, merch, lyrics, music and I am the only member to appear on every release."
Additional details on the status of Infernaeon and who actually remains in the band will be announced as they are made available.
