Yhdysvaltalainen thrash metallia soittava Imagika on päättänyt lopettaa. Lue lisää nähdäksesi yhtyeen kitaristin Steve Ricen virallinen viesti lopettamiseen liittyen.
”All things must come to an end and for IMAGIKA the time is now. After 17 years, seven worldwide releases, two vocalists, five guitarists, three bassists, two drummers, countless performances and tour dates, I’ve decided to put the band to rest. The reasons are many, but the truth is that it’s time for something new and to move forward without being bound to the past. I’m not mourning the end because I’m grateful the band lasted as long as it did. I look forward to building upon the music and legacy of a band I spearheaded for close to two decades with my new project.
”I would personally like to thank all the fans, press, labels, booking agents, promoters, venues, studios, engineers, artist, instrument manufactures and everyone else that had a helping hand in IMAGIKA’s career. It could not have happened without you! I will personally still handle and oversea everything IMAGIKA post mortem for the foreseeable future.”
He added, ”Moving forward, drummer Wayne Devecchi, former ELDRITCH guitarist Roberto Proietti and I have formed a new metal/ thrash project that will take our collective musical ideas to the next level. Fans of our past bands music will not be disappointed as we’ve put together some great catchy material that is melodic, complex and heavy. A five-song instrumental demo has already been recorded and we are presently seeking a pro vocalist and bassists to complete the project.
