Danish heavy metal veterans King Diamond announced that bass player Hal Patino is no longer part of the group. As it was officially stated, Hal has been fired from the band for the second time (the first time was in 1990). He was part of the group between 1987 and 1990, and again from 2000 till recently. Below you can read the short statement from the frontman King Diamond, regarding this departure.

Frontman King Diamond briefly comments: "Hal Patino has been relieved of his duties with King Diamond, for reasons very similar to why he was fired from the band in 1990. This will have NO negative impact on our upcoming shows whatsoever. On the contrary."

As some of you already know, the band recently confirmed a headlining North American tour dates, of which details can be found here.

If I remember correctly, the first time he was fired, it was related to drug addiction.

Yeah....Hal's daughter, Malou is now on Twitter cussing King Diamond. I'm quite sure if it weren't for King, nobody would know who the hell Hal Patino is.
