Time for a Monday Feel Bad... long time MS favorites, Mar De Grises announced via Facebook that they have come to an end. They had a bit to say on the matter, which is good, as I'm pretty speechless right now.

Dear friends and fans,

It is with deep emotion that we must announce that Mar de Grises has come to an ending.

Several reasons have led us to make this decision. Our spirits have changed and we collectively chose to end this beautiful cycle. Our musical paths have parted. You will know about our new projects soon.

Being part of this project during all these years has been amazing and magical, and sharing our feelings through music with great friends for so long has filled us with joy and satisfaction.

Mar de Grises allowed us to reach places we never thought we would; to share stage with people we admire and, above all, with good friends; to contribute to the musical history of Chile, and to reach the hearts of fans all over the world.

We feel more than rewarded with all your love and feedback.

We would like to give our sincere thanks to all our technical staff, friends and families, past members of the band, labels, promoters, media, agencies, and to all those who believed and were sincerely involved in all our undertakings.

Above all, we wish to thank all our fans who have given us unconditional support during these 13 years.

To give this story the end it deserves, we are working on the details of a final show which will be announced soon.

Now the Jewel of the Andes, as we were once called, will rest in our hearts and will continue to live in you and your memories.

Farewell.


Farewell indeed... only three albums, but three wonderful ones at that. Thanks for the great tunes, and thanks for taking the time to interact with your fans at Metalstorm.

A damn shame this great band and swell guys are calling it quits.
Mr. Doctor - 23.07.2013 at 00:08  
This is probably going to be the worst news of the year for me. They were a very special band... Urgh, I'm just speechless.
Erik M. - 23.07.2013 at 00:09  
What a shame... especially since I'm only familiar with their work for a few months now.

Never liked the band, but they certainly garnered some serious respect from people.
Mephistopholes1 - 23.07.2013 at 00:39  
13 years and 3 magnificent studio albums + one outstanding EP. They sure as hell put all they had onto each album every time. It's a shame they are ending it, really...

Awful news ... i connected with their music on such a deep level and always held a great amount of respect to the band members because they seemed like good humble people from their interviews
Lit. - 23.07.2013 at 01:23  
Least they're ending on a high note.

They quite are very good doom band...one of very rare South America band I own stuff. Fare well
LeKiwi - 23.07.2013 at 03:03  
While I'm probably not nearly as disappointed as some of you guys, these guys are one of the few doom metal bands I enjoy. Sad to see such a loss :S

Son of a bitch. Monday "feel bad" indeed.

Farewell, folks.

Quite shame indeed. They have provided some great music and left an unforgetable legacy behind.
Nefarious - 23.07.2013 at 09:58  
Damn....well that's just gone and ruined my year
-DC-002- - 23.07.2013 at 10:01  
Second worst news this year only to Jeff Hanneman dying.
Windrider - 23.07.2013 at 11:37  
This really makes me sad... great music guys!

One Doom Band less
now only 3464 need to follow that example
.starrk - 23.07.2013 at 14:43  
One of my favorite bands, it's a shame to see them go.
Dark†SymphonY - 23.07.2013 at 17:37  
I just listened to this band recently and from what I recall, it was excellent. Definitely going to give the rest of their discography a listen.

According to MA that would leave 7,575 - 3,464 = 4,311 doom bands to annoy you ;p

dumbest, most brain dead comment ever

Even I wouldn't think of saying such a thing when a Euro power metal band splits up a brutal death metal band. And that really is telling

well, the other 4311 aren"t known to be active anyways
anyways, not even i would take my comments that are meant as a joke too seriously, but thank you for awarding me with that record

Oh man, I'm really underwhelmed right now, they were my favorite Doom metal band and one of my all-time favorite bands ever. Their first album is by far, one of the greatest doom metal albums that have ever been made. I can't understand why they are splitting-up right now when they are at the top of their career, but thinking about it, maybe it's better that way, because they left us three masterpieces, three albums that are unique and very special in their own way.
Farewell, may the legacy of the Jewel Of the Andes will live forever!

I'm glad I got to see them live a few years ago, I really like their work
