Australian metallists Deströyer 666 have fresh news bursting straight up from the core lineup sector. Guitarist Ian "Shrapnel" Gray is leaving the band after 16 years of service.

Here's their statement: "The end of an era - Shrapnel has for personal reasons decided that the past weekend's Southern Cross Fest will be his last show with Destroyer. The man has been with the band since 1996 and has been pivotal to the band's career over the past 16 years. It was without doubt a fitting end to what has been one hell of a ride. A fine musician, a great mate, a brother, and an integral member of this pack, he will be greatly missed. Destroyer will continue..."
