Monument Of Misanthropy Looking For New Members

European brutal death metal stronghold Monument Of Misanthropy announce they are looking for new guitarists and a new bass player. European musicians with their own material are being preferred, but it is NOT mandatory. Get in touch with the band via this email: monumentofmisanthropy@yahoo.de or their official bandpage on FB: Monument Of Misanthropy Official Band Site

Explains the inventor of the Monument Of Misanthropy brand-imprint, band founder and frontman George "Misanthrope" Wilfinger:

"Neither will I be using any empty bullshit phrases like "due to artistic differences", "because of unsurmountable personal differences", nor will I be washing Monument Of Misanthropy's dirty laundry in public. Fact is that after the last very successful years, three awesome European tours and two acclaimed releases, for me it feels like I should carry on with a new team of guitarists and bass player. Artists who still have the fire inside to go beyond their limits and with an iron will to produce a brutal new death metal album for Monument Of Misanthropy with me and one of the best drummers out there in the brutal death metal world. People willing to play festivals, to go on tours, even if the fee won't buy them a Porsche. Musicians who live for the cause. Just sincere, motivated musicians willing to go the extra mile, that's all I'm asking for. Musicians from Europe and with their own material are preferred, but it's NO must."

Monument Of Misanthropy have been recording and touring with drum-gods Romain Goulon (ex-Necrophagist, ex-Benighted), Simon Schilling (ex-Belphegor) and David Diepold (ex-Benighted, Cognizance).

To give you an impression what is awaiting you being one of their new members, the band include their recent touring history below: More...
