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."
Australian thrash metallers Mortal Sin have announced that Nekrofeist's Dave Tinelt will be the band's new vocalist following the departure of Mat Maurer, who left the band in February.
The band posted the following on their Facebook page: "Well here it is guys, we would like to welcome to the Sinners camp our new frontman and all round top guy Dave Tinelt, Dave comes to us from another great Aussie band Nekrofeist, we are very excited for him to join the family, our first show with Dave will be this Saturday at Venom in Sydney, more shows to follow in the next few weeks. More news coming..."
Vocalist Mat Maurer has quit Australian metallers Mortal Sin.
He commented: "I have decided to leave the band for personal reasons and irreconcilable differences. Last year was an incredibly difficult year for me personally and I have decided to put my family first. Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years. Over and out."
"Blood Of My Enemies", the new video from Australian thrashers Mortal Sin can now be seen below. The song comes off the band's new album Psychology Of Death, which was released in Europe on November 18th via NoiseArt Records. More album details were previously reported here.
NoiseArt Records is very proud to announce the signing of Australian thrash metal institution Mortal Sin. Their brand new thrash hammer Psychology Of Death will be released on November 18th 2011 via NoiseArt Records including their legendary debut album Mayhemic Destruction as a bonus disc in the limited digipak version. This very record put Mortal Sin on the thrash metal map back in 1986 letting them become a rising star in the scene and throughout their career the band toured and played with acts such as Metallica, Anthrax, Faith No More, Testament, Overkill, Judas Priest and many more…
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!
Australian thrash metallers Mortal Sin have posted the following update:
"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! We look forward to making it one of the best albums we can possibly make and we look forward to getting back out on the road as soon as we can."
Veteran Australian thrashers Mortal Sin have posted a live video online at YouTube. The video is of the band playing at Wacken, Germany in 2006. The video goes for nine minutes and can be seen at this location.
Legendary Australian metal band MORTAL SIN will release a DVD of their first show back on the road (March 5, 2004 at the Annandale Hotel in Sydney). The release date is not confirmed, but the disc is expected to be ready by the time the band go on tour in June. The DVD will contain the group's complete set from the March 5 gig, an interview with the band about its history and some rare footage of the recording of their classic 1987 debut, "Mayhemic Destruction", and shows from 1987 through to 1997. "The production is awesome and the band are excited about the way the new songs are shaping up," commented singer Mat Maurer.
