Vocalist Simone Pluijmers has quit Scottish brutal death metallers Cerebral Bore and has been temporarily replaced by Shawn Whitaker. According to the band, she left less than 24 hours before their US tour.

The band commented: "Som walked out on us less than 24 hours before the U.S. tour, and we were forced to either cancel or go ahead with it as an instrumental, if need be. We didn't want to let our U.S. fans down, so we went ahead with our buddy Shawn Whitaker on vocals for the tour. Show us your support and make Shawn feel at home; he saved us from a disaster."

Wow, that sucks

Yes, it does. She had such an awesome voice. Wonder why she just up and left?

They had to play Damnation Festival 2011 without her too because she apparently had to do something else last minute...

Well, I'm glad we are resorting to sexism after Metal Storm reported [sic] one side of the story.

The other side is that she quit the band because one of the members, Paul, was being manipulative and she didn't not feel safe being on tour with him. You can go to Metal Sucks or various other sites that published this story earlier today to get both sides. But, if this is a situation where someone was being abused, I think the sexist comments are a little inappropriate.

"Own Hapiness" = Doesn't agree with the band, definately not a good reason to walk out 24 hour before your US tour starts.. Also, "Treating me bad" pretty vague term, chances are she's the one blowing this out of preportion.

Band is over either way, most people that care about them only do because they had a girl singer. Now that she's gone, they'll probably fade into obscurity, which is a shame because the music is really good. Some of the most memorable brutal death metal for sure.

Well this sucks, she was pretty good and quite brutal. I don't think the band will fade into obscurity either, sure having a female vocalist was a bit of a novelty but their music is still really good. Would be kinda kool if Shawn Whitaker was asked to stay, then they would most definitely not fade into obscurity. Man as sad as that is I'd still like to see them play with Shawn Whitaker.

Sounds to me like they might have been dating and she didn't feel comfortable touring with an ex from a seemingly bad relationship. If she truly did feel threatened by him then I say good for her for caring more about her own comfort and safety than staying in a bad situation out of fear or greed.

Personally the vocalist does not matter to me in brutal death, its the instrumental work that is most important. If it was the type of music with very varied and very distinguishable vocals then it would matter. I'm sure Shawn Whitaker will do a fine job, perhaps he could join the band too. He would bring a load of great ideas to the music aside from vocals because as we know he is a skilled guitarist.

Paul McGuire already has a girlfriend and child.

Fair enough.

And totally agree that Shawn would def bring some great ideas to the table for Cerebral Bore if they were to ask him to join and he accepted...

Well fuck... Hopefully all goes well for Som and the rest of the band. I'm glad they were able to find a replacement on such short notice, but it sounds like Som probably had a good reason to leave.
