||Last week the news got out that Norman Skinner, vocalist of US metallers Imagika, has left the band. Skinner posted the following message:
"After 6 Years, 4 Albums, festivals, tours & countless shows today I announce that I am officially leaving Imagika. This decision was not made lightly and has been a constant thought throughout this last year. I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea as I have no animosity towards any of the members of Imagika. They are and will continue to be my very good friends. My decision to leave is purely one of musical direction differences and an overall career choice. I feel that I have contributed and done all I can within the band but my heart is no longer in it.
I have finished all commitments and obligations to the group in regards to our last release and think I would be doing the band and the Imagika fans an injustice by half-heartedly continuing the writing process for a new album. I will be making the Imagika show on October 16th, with Armored Saint my farewell performance with the group. I am sure it will be a very bittersweet event for me as my chapter with [Imagika closes and a new one opens.
I was a fan before joining Imagika and I will be a fan once again. It is now time for a new vocalist to rise up and carry the Imagika torch. To my fans, thank you for the years of support and stay tuned... I will continue to sing and am excited to see what opportunities await me next on my musical journey."
The band is of course looking for a replacement. More info is available here.
