Threshold - Damian Wilson Out, Announce New Vocalist


Changes are afoot in Threshold. The progressive metallers have parted ways with vocalist Damian Wilson. The band has chosen to start a new chapter without him and he has told them he respects their decision. It looks like it was a one-sided decision. Threshold's new (old) frontman will be Glynn Morgan, the band's former vocalist from 1994 to 1996. Morgan appeared on the group's 1994 album Psychedelicatessen and returned to work with the band in 2008 to record tracks for the singles box set Paradox.

Wilson enjoyed three stints with Threshold, performing on the band's most recent records For The Journey and March Of Progress as well as their early releases Wounded Land and Extinct Instinct in the 1990's. The band thanks him and wishes him every success in his future endeavours.

Damian Wilson's statement regarding the departure: "Unfortunately this is not a mutual decision, but I respect it. After I had recorded the album and committed to the tour I was informed that Threshold were going to continue on without me. They have every right to make this choice, although it is difficult to part ways with a group of people you've shared so many experiences with. I really enjoyed the past decade recording and touring with Threshold and wish them all the best for the future, with the hope we might work again on projects somewhere down the line. The label Nuclear Blast are amazing, and with the wonderful support of the fan base the whole journey of being the frontman for Threshold has been fantastic."



Glynn Morgan


Glynn Morgan commented: "I was over the moon when I got the phone call. To work with Karl and Richard and be a part of the mighty Threshold story once more is a great honour. I can't wait to start recording, the new material has me hooked already."




Threshold are currently in the studio working on the new album Legends Of The Shires.

Wow, didn't expect this to happen and also so short before a new album release.... Damn, Damian Wilson was the voice of Threshold and the only logical vocalist to front them ever since Andrew McDermott died....

Can't really think of a reason why they would dismiss him.... he did a great job.

Not happy about the news, last two albums were great and I was hoping for a solid continuation of this trend.

I think I'm okay with the move. Threshold never fully enraptured me with their last few albums, so if it gives Damian an excuse to return to writing Headspace material I'm all for it.

Wow, what a unexpected plot twist.

Im really curious to see the outcome of this change, because i really like Psycadelicatessen, wich is in my opinion, the heaviest álbum of the band.

Maybe Glynn will make as much impact as Damien? I don't see this changing the tight and exciting sound we know as Threshold.

Something here smells very fishy.....a one sided decision? Had Damian just been a hired gun all this time? I have been a huge fan of his work and I'm getting the impression there were too many projects going on to make everyone happy. I can't comment on his replacement because i've not heard a note of him and was not following the band way back then.
