Symphorce Calls It Quits After Twelve Years

German power metal band Symphorce has disbanded after seven studio albums (last of which was "Unrestricted" in 2010). The band made the following announcement on the split:

"Bad news for all fans of German metallers Symphorce. In the following statement the band announces their breakup:

"Thank you & lights out!

"7 albums, 12 years and thousands of enthusiastic fans don't make that decision easy, but after long thoughts and lots of talks we decided together to call it a day and dissolve Symphorce. The heads are dead, the timetables of our main bands packed with dates,...... so we feel a lack of inspiration and no possibility to record more albums, play more shows with the passion and commitment needed therefore. Symphorce always stand for an absolute independent type of metal, but with our latest (and last) album "Unrestricted" we had to recognize, that we have said everything we wanted musically. It was an unbelievable, intense and fantastic time! We thank you all for your long lasting loyalty and the enthusiasm you have shown to us. We will never forget all this for sure.

Of course, we will still remain with and in our other bands and will see us for sure somewhere somewhen on this planet. And therefore, ... lights off ...spotlights on!

"Thanks for 12 fantastic years, thanks for the fulfillment of a dream! It was AMAZING!"

Members of Symphorce can be heard with other projects: singer Andy B. Franck is currently busy with Brainstorm, guitarist Markus Pohl is with Mystic Prophecy and drummer Steffen Theurer is with Watch Me Bleed.
