Dutch death metal act Supreme Pain has issued the following statement on their MySpace blog:
''Our drummer Toep Duin decided to quit Supreme Pain because of personal issues he need to arrange. And because of that he could not combine that with playing in Supreme Pain.
It is sad, but we understand his decision and wish him all the best for the future. We had a kick ass time together and also shredded some sick gigs. The last gig with Toep behind the kit was at Turock, Essen, Germany. 2 vids of this gig are on Supreme Pain myspace and youtube channel, so check them out! Toep take care and we see eachother somewere around.
The new drummachine for the Supreme Pain brutality wil be Paul Beltman. He is former Sinister drummer and also he played the drums for Fondlecorpse, Infinited Hate and Weapons To Hunt. Also he was playing a couple of years in Judgement Day. So a very experienced and very skilled drummer. Paul is a very cool guy and it's great he is now behind the kit in Supreme Pain.

US metallers Genghis Tron have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:
Things have been pretty quiet for Genghis Tron recently, which has led some folks to ask us if we're breaking up. Well, we definitely aren't breaking up, but we have decided to take some time away from the band.
It will be a while before we release another record, and probably even longer before we play shows. However, this was the best thing we could do to make sure that Genghis Tron keeps writing some real toe-tappers. Whenever we come back, it will probably be pretty weird and really good.

US metallers Pathology have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:
"We regret to say that we are forced to miss the last two weeks of the Immolation/Vader US tour. At the show in Los Angeles our guitarist Tim Tiszczenko decided he no longer wants to be a part of Pathology. Tim has been with me for almost 5 years, so having him quit like this is a big disappointment and shock. He basically cannot handle life on the road so he has to leave the band mid-tour despite us requesting him to complete the dates through year's end.
In addition, many of you know we have been touring in support of Legacy of the Ancients with different fill-in singers waiting for Matti Way to clear some personal issues and join us on the road but it is becoming more and more evident that he just can't commit to the live activity we have planned.

"After spending an intensive summer camp on Finnish countryside and putting a final touch to the demo, we started recording the drums for our next album. We gathered together yesterday and set up the drums and all the recording devices. Today was mostly spent just perfecting the sounds. Just like with our last album we got some back-up from Mr. Kai Hahto (Swallow The Sun & Wintersun), who is known to be able to conjure godly sounds by tuning the drums. The legendary duet of Mikko Karmila and TeeCee Kinnunen are taking care of the engineering again. Tonight ended with a complete take of the first song, so the recording session has now officially started!"
