Guitarist Alex Auburn of the Canadian death metallers Cryptopsy has confirmed that the band has once again parted ways with singer Lord Worm (a.k.a. Dan Greening). No reason was given for Lord Worm's departure, but according to Auburn, this time the vocalist was "kicked out" of the band and didn't leave of his own accord.

Cryptopsy is currently looking to audition candidates to fill the positions of singer/frontman and keyboardist/samplist. Vocalists must be able to sing in clean voice, on pitch, and also be able to scream/growl. If you are motivated and would like to try out, e-mail the band at If you have a criminal record, don't bother auditioning, as this means you can't tour.

ha, my first thought was "not again.."
shame really, its always bad when bands change members but I guess there must be a good reason for this..
the last album was really great as well

haha, the line with the criminal record is funny, but sadly enough it's true too

Was rather unexpected.
Although anyway nothing will beat the first two albums anyway, I'm not expecting anything high now, after that rather "dadada drrrrr takakakak" Once was Not.

Damnit. I too will never witness Lord Worm live.

Didn't like him on the latest one anyway. First 2 all the way.

WTF!!!I am pretty upset,the last album was superb,and he is the true voice of Cryptopsy,I also was looking to see him live one day.

I want to prove….

Wait and see. Line up change isn't synonym of bad things.

Sad news, Lord Worm was the true singer of Cryptopsy, really too bad (again...!)
Hope they find a new great frontman...

Oh no , really really bad news.

I'm so glad I got to see Worm live twice last year. He's definitely one of the best frontmen I've seen live (and I've seen a shit load). I wonder why he was kicked out. What a shame

I liked Lord Worm :/ Even though i hate his live performance he was still cool, plus i liked his voice. Once Was Not is a great album, one of my favorites and it's not that much to me about Lord Worm going, it's about the guy who's going to replace him : I doubt Cryptopsy will be able to find a better or even equally good singer..

Oh well.. time will show
