Metalium - To Call It Quits In 2011


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.

That's not what I would call a loss.

They shake your hand and they smile and they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends we'll stick with you till the end
But everybody's only looking out for themselves
And you say who can you trust I'll tell you nobody
