Axamenta - Frontman Has To Leave The Band

Belgium's highly appreciated and long-standing Metallers Axamenta have lost their frontman and singer Peter Meynckens. A statement by the band goes as follows:

"Very unfortunate news from the Axa-front, our frontman Peter has to quit singing in Axamenta, on doctor's orders.

Here's Peter official statement: "After more than 9 and a half years it has come to pass that I say goodbye to Axa. This has been a tough decision but alas it is a decision taken on doctor's orders. My heart is still with the guys and the music but my voice can't take anymore damage than it has taken over the years. It has been a great ride and I wish I could ride the cloud of Axa untill eternity. The gigs that are planned will go on with me as the singer.

You can check this Axa line-up this weekend at the sandstorm gig [Link]. Come and support us!

Cheers, Peter"

We will surely still cherish a lot of good and fun moments with Peter, as we believe he will only leave the band in functional terms, of course not in close entourage, so to say.

In relation to Peter's departure from the band, we've posted an application form for those who are interested in auditioning for vocalist of Axamenta. You can read the application form here."

I'm very dissapointed in this. Peter was a great vocalist and his voice will be greatly missed in Axamenta's music.

Axamenta is a great discovery that I made few years ago, they are a really good band and it's sad the singer had to quit, he was quite good

This is disappointing news, since I think Axamenta had really started to find its sound on the last album. They went through so many sounds before getting there over the years, it's a downer to have the vocalist quit for sure. We'll see if the band changes direction again?
