Anybody who has ever been a musician knows that eventually there comes a time where your band implodes. For whatever reason. Be it creative differences, tension between members, writers block….or your guitarist sleeps with your longtime girlfriend.
Well, that last one is apparently the reason that Toronto’s Witchrot has decided to go on “extended hiatus”. Check out what is possibly THE MOST METAL BREAKUP ANNOUNCEMENT EVER below!
Just in case Facebook decides it doesn’t want to cooperate, here is the transcript from the post:
“Due to the unfortunate reality of our guitarist fucking my girlfriend of almost 7 years WITCHROT will be taking an extended hiatus. I however will continue the band in another space and time, being ripe with hate the music is slowly flowing and without a doubt will become the most devastating, torturous music I have ever created. Thanks for the support, stay heavy – Peter
“Also our drummer died…”
For real? For real. I mean while this isn’t something that isn’t heard of when it comes to people being in bands (looking at you, Fleetwood Mac), this does take it to a whole new level of honesty.
No word on whether or not the drummer is actually dead as I really couldn’t find ANYTHING else about this band that didn’t concern this post. However, if you want to listen to their particular brand of doom metal, check out their EP right here!
