Martiria Splits With Lead Singer Rick Anderson

Italian metal band Martiria announced that they officially split with long time vocalist Rick Anderson. The former vocalist for Warlord (where he was once known as Damien King III) was let go as the band is seeking a new direction.

The announcement made on the band's Facebook page reads as follows:

"After ten years, four albums recorded and an unforgettable live experience, Andy, Marco, Umberto and Derek want to thank sincerely Rick Anderson for the contribution he gave in developing the Martiria Project. His presence has been fundamental for the success of the band, and his friendship is invaluable for us, since he is both a great man and a brother for us.

"At this stage, though, the band has the need to proceed in a new direction, looking for those new motivations that just the live exhibitions can give. Hence, the decision of (temporarily) splitting our ways; a very suffered decision indeed but, standing the physical distance between us, it wouldn't have been possible to take a different one.

"So, while we welcome Freddy and Alex that join the band, sure that they will be able to keep on with the same passion we have had for all those years, we hug our singer wishing him the best for his future and hoping that our paths will cross again very soon.

"God bless you, Rick. It's a see-you-soon, not a farewell."
