Torture Killer Splits With Vocalist Juri Sallinen

Finnish death metal act Torture Killer has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band's vocalist:

"Our cooperation with our vocalist Juri has ended. We thank him for the past years, all the shows we've played together and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Like any band member would know, there's more to being in a band than just performing on stage. With these other things, we have had constant difficulties meeting each other eye-to-eye and these issues we have not been able to be resolved.

"This has once again put us in a situation where we need to evaluate our line-up and where we stand with the band. This decision is very unpleasant, but regardless of that, necessary and the right one. Because of this we are now looking for a new death metal vocalist. We hope you live in Western- or Southern part of Finland, and/or you are capable of coming to Turku whenever needed. Contact us via: serialtorturekiller(at)gmail.com

"We've been under these circumstances before and even if these situations have always been annoying & unpleasant, we've always managed to come back stronger and stand straight again. And so it shall be, again!"

Their first album was For Maggots to Devour, which was even more awesome than Swarm in my personal opinion. They've changed vocalists between each album so far.
