German power metallers Metalium are planning to split and stop all activities in 2011.

The band issued the following statement: "All musicians are meanwhile involved in many other activities (private as well as music-wise) and after nearly 13 years with 9 cd's and 2 dvds, the chapters will come to an end in 2011. The band members share a deep friendship underneath and want to say thanks to our longtime label Massacre Records, and all fans and supporters around the world who kept the flame burning since the band's beginning in 1998.

The 5-piece group will play some farewell shows which will be multitrack-recorded for a final Live-CD which comes together with 4-5 new studio songs we will record end 2010. This final output with the live cd and new studio songs will be completed with some rare photos and further footage and released over Massacre records in 2011.
The first part of the farewell tour will take place in Spain at following dates, Henning, Matthias, Tolo, Michael and Lars are looking forward to have a killer Metal-party with you one last time!"


First farewell dates include:

Oct. 21 - Spain, St. Maria, Mallorca - Factoria
Oct. 22 - Spain, Murcia - Sala Gamma
Oct. 23 - Spain, Burgos - Miranda, Burgos - La Fabrica
Oct. 24 - Spain, Donosti - Studio 21

Yeah, I read like ten minutes ago. To be honest... I'm actually a bit happy. Metalium were nothing special, just typical power cheesiness.

What is it with these people splitting up at a time when we need them most?

That's not what I would call a loss.

When I glanced over the news headings I thought this one said "Metallica to call it quits", and had a minor heart attack. Phew.

Not that it would be a big loss either but it would be much more unexpected. lol

Never really listened to Metallium, have a couple of friends who like them and have given me an album or two to listen to(which I still havnt yet lol). Regardless, still sad news. So much bad news in the metal world lately... whats going on!

They have some good albums.... it is always nice when a band breaks up gracefully.
