Mortal Sin - Disbanding

Australian thrash metal veterans Mortal Sin have announced that they will be breaking up for the fourth time in their history, following their most recent reformation in 2004. A statement from guitarist Ryan Huthnance reads as follows: "It's time the rumours were laid to rest. Yes, Mortal Sin is finished. Due to changing personal circumstances, as well as priorities, Luke and Nathan have both decided that their time with the band is at an end. This decision was not made lightly, and was not a result of the actions and words made by other parties who would lead you to believe it was."

Mortal Sin - Part Ways With Guitarist, In Writing Process

Australian metallers Mortal Sin have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:

"Sorry I have not been on here in a while, it's been a busy couple of months since we got back from our South American tour, which was very satisfying but incredibly hard. Many thanks to all the metalheads who came to our shows, you made us feel very welcome and supported our music way more than we could have ever imagined. Thank you. To all the organisers, promoters and townfolk, we really appreciate all the work you put into making the tour a success for Mortal Sin. We certainly hope we can make our way back to your beautiful countries again sometime soon!

2010 arrived and Mortal Sin decided it was about fucking time we got our arses into gear and started writing some songs for a new album. We are notoriously slow writers, but many of you who may have heard the new song "Deny" that we have been road testing at our shows, will agree that we could be onto something special here. Like many thrash bands we feel strongly about our thrash roots and want to create an album of pure thrash. If we could combine Kreator's Hordes Of Chaos, Testament's Formation Of The Damnation and Overkill's newie Ironbound into a huge melting pot, that would be the kind of album we wanna make!

Unfortunately though our great friend and Maestro guitarist Mick Sultana has decided to call it a day, citing personal reasons for his decision to leave the band. We love you like a brother Mick and we've had some awesome shows with you, we wish you the best for whatever you choose to do. Your songs will be in the heads of our fans for a long long time to come. Fucking legend!

On the home front, my brother had a successful kidney transplant the day we left Australia for our South American tour. He is feeling great and less than three months after the operation is back at work. Fucking legend!

Not so good news is today I found out my nephew took his own life yesterday. Tragic, very tragic loss of a 22yr olds life! RIP Keiran! Hopefully all the pain is now left behind.

"After such a big year last year Mortal Sin have decided to begin writing a new album. We'll be looking at releasing something later this year. Don't ask me when, don't ask me how many songs, don't ask me if we have a title yet. The answer to all those questions will come with time!
