For those of us Metalstormers who love the truly awesome, amazing, crushing wall of sound which is Minsk, it is time for a Saturday Feel Bad. The band is now on indefinite hiatus. Woe is us. From their facebook page:


Dysfunction, Sad News, Indefinite Hiatus...
by Minsk on Saturday, April 9, 2011 at 9:56am

We regret to have to say that for the immediate and indefinite future, Minsk will be on a continued hiatus. In the recent months, it's been increasingly difficult to answer the question "what is up with Minsk?" Truthfully, I don't think anyone has a definitive answer. It doesn't feel like we've done everything that we intended to do or exhausted the creative space that Minsk occupied. But times and people change.

We had been slowly working toward a new album, which we all spent a week recording this past December. And we introduced two new individuals into the family with the additions of Jeff Hyde and Aaron Austin, two long time friends and generous collaborators. But the way forward seems insurmountable at this point. Nothing about this band has ever been clear cut, or easy, or predictable. And we're unable to see the future once again. There desire to create and explore new approaches still exists at the same time we have to let go of what has been.

We would certainly like to extend the greatest thanks to all the friends and allies we've made over the years, all the fans and kindred spirits that have urged us on during the best and worst of times, and to our friends and family without whose continued love and support none of this would have been possible. Once again we find ourselves soul searching and reflecting. And more certainly needs to be said at some point.

In the coming days and weeks, we will continue to use this space to remember what Minsk has been and has accomplished these past eight years and to highlight the whole host of Minsk-related projects currently in motion. Thanks again for all the love and support.



But before you ponder seppuku at this news, the band is named after a city which has shown historical resilience too invasions and razings. So who knows, maybe they, too, like their namesake, will return and rebuild. Or at least finish that album they mentioned working on and go out with a (sonic) boom.

are you trying to correct my grammar? seriously? it's a slight play on Faith No More. and you of all people shouldn't point at anyone's spelling or grammar. Hell, you have no less than two (accepting horribly awkward phrasing as correct) in the seven words you typed above.

He meant the dash, not the grammar. All news here are posted as "band - news title".

Are you like 13 years old? @Bad English just asked a simple question, and you went ape on him like he violated your mom.
Oh and this IS a comments section, people tend to, you know, comment stuff here.

Hi. this thread is about Minsk going on hiatus. not punctuation. i've added the fucking dash to the title so future discussion can actually be on topic. future off topic posts will simply be deleted.

From facebook -

On a positive note, Minsk is currently writing new material which we are very excited about. We also plan to put the finishing touches on our fourth full-length in the coming months. Thank you all for listening.
