It was predictable for some after what happened with Necrophobic's frontman Tobias Sidegård who got a six-month prison sentence for abuse but the Swedish death metal band and their label Season Of Mist have now posted a statement announcing that the band will proceed without Tobias and search for a new vocalist.

Statement from the band: "Tobias is no longer a member of Necrophobic. The verdict following his trial regrettably left us, the band, with no other choice. As stated before, Necrophobic do not accept or tolerate domestic violence in any way. We will now search for a replacement. Tobias will make a statement of his own within the next couple of days, which he will publish on his Facebook page."

This whole ordeal happened at a time the band has a new album, Womb Of Lilithu, set for release this month.

Why would you lose respect for the rest of the band? They're standing up against domestic abuse. If anyone's a pussy in all of this, it's Sidegård.
