12:43 - Zaphod Well, any other country than my own would be an amazing opportunity if I ever decide to start a band, I was just giving it as an example because that's where Jari's from.
12:39 - Redn1ght Zap, Finland isn't that great apparently for touring bands.. (They seem to avoid it like a plague tormented country...)
12:31 - Zaphod Yeah, the comments on that guy's long post are also pretty entertaining.
12:30 - MelancholiaC Just curious, if he indeed turns his fanbase into a charity service, how is that any more ethically honest than "those greedy bloodsucking record companies"? (and I doubt Nuclear Blast can really be called one...)
12:26 - MelancholiaC I see that in the fb comments one guy in particular has called him out on it in a long response. Most people just want to throw their money at him through paypal...
12:20 - Zaphod The fact that I saw him live in my own country (Belgium) says enough. If I ever get a chance to tour Europe and play in Finland with my non-existent band I'll already have achieved more than I could ever hope for.
Spanish symphonic metal act Diabulus In Musica has announced the departure of bassist Álex Sanz, drummer Xabier Jareño and guitarist Adrián M. Vallejo from the band. The departure has been known for some time, and the members cite musical direction as the cause.
Vocalist Zuberoa Aznárez commented: "We are very sad to announce the departure of Adrián, Álex and Xabi from Diabulus In Musica. The only reason is that they don't feel so excited about this music style anymore, so we cannot do anything but respect and understand this decision. Their last show with DIM will be at the release party of Itzalen Sua on November 30th.
Anyway, this is not the end! We knew this decision since a few months now, so we have been working with new awesome musicians to continue playing shows and making new music, thenů Be ready for more powerful symphonic & modern metal in the future! We will introduce the new members on January 10th, when we will play another show to present the project Itzalen Sua in Azpeitia."
For those who don't know what Itzalen Sua is about: DIM has written the soundtrack for an illustrated book about Basque mythology under a modern and original perspective. The photographer Xanti Rodriguez has turned some famous people from the Basque Country into some of the most important Gods and Godesses from our ancient Basque legends.
