Strident Temporarily Splitting With Guitarist George Van Der Riet

South African power metal act Strident has issued the following announcement about temporarily parting ways with the band's guitarist:

"Announcement time: Our rhythm guitarist and resident sex god, George van der Riet, will be leaving us for a couple of months, to go hone his skills of shredding and sexing in a Tibetan monastery.

"Do not fear, for he will return - in the meantime, a suitably handsome candidate will attempt to fill his handsome boots. We wish him luck, perseverance and stamina on his journey - Hail!"

The band's amazingly epic "Power Metal From Space" video is still available here, or you can listen to the track "Pro Patria Mori" in the SoundCloud player below.
