Awww I am bummed the fuck out to tell you guys that Canadian super technical death metal band Martyr has lost their drummer Pat Hamelin and is now unsure about the band’s future… The band has released the following official statement:
“After 14 years of great musical adventures, drummer Pat Hamelin has decided to leave the band MARTYR due to personal reasons. We all wish him well. The remaining members of MARTYR are unsure about the future of the band, as there has been a lot of undergoing tensions through the last years that was not taken care of, thus resulting in a frustrating negative vibe that would stagnate creativity and motivation. MARTYR is on hold for now. More news to come later. Thanks for your support over all these years!!”
Fucking lame. Martyr was one of my favorite tech death bands. They were on another level and I have no idea why they never reached the level of success as say Necrophagist. Whatever, do yourself a favor and go get their whole discography.
