In May 2010, Thomas Gurrath made news when he was ordered to quit his day job as a teacher. Officials stated that his performances were "a form of mental instability that made him unsafe to be around children" and he was informed he would have to choose between teaching and his music. Gurrath chose the latter.
Guitarist Daniel Sandvoss had to leave the band after attacking Thomas live on stage at the Queens of Metal Festival 2006. Thomas, totally drunk, had played with a toy chainsaw on Daniel's guitar.
