Dawn Of Ashes Splits With Guitarist Volkar Kael And Bassist Othuum

Vocalist Kristof Bathory from Dawn of Ashes has issued the statement regarding guitarist Volkar and bassist Othuum leaving the band:

"I will officially be taking over Dawn of Ashes as my solo band. Bahemoth & Rayne will still be in the band with a whole new live line up. I appreciate the hard work that Volkar & Othuum did for this band but it's time that DOA to go back to it's roots with a new feeling that I will be provoking. Stay Tuned! Cheers to Volkar & Othuum again!"

Othuum Volkar Kael also issued the following statement:

"Fans, Friends, Vile,

"Our time with Dawn Of Ashes has been quite a ride. Writing and performing for you has been such a reward.

However it is time that we moved on to other ventures. It is with no ill blood that we depart from DOA, we simply no longer feel we share the same vision or views as the other half of what was Dawn Of Ashes.

"We will be continuing to make music for you, and hope that many of you, including our 'Vile' will follow. We take this time now to announce our new project 'ALAL.' ALAL is the combined vision and sound of Volkar Kael and Othuum. The word 'ALAL' is Sumerian for 'Destroyer' which is most fitting for what we will be bringing your way.

"Thank you for all of your support, and we hope to see many of you spreading the word for things to come!"

DOA was dropped by management, label, and booking because their singer was a major pain in the ass. That's why VK and OThuum left, they were sick of his sh**. I heard Volkar wrote most of the music anyhow and pulled them together for most of the time they were doing well. Oh well, Bathory's loss. He trys way too hard anyways. what a joke.
