The Amenta - Part Ways With Two Members, Replacements Announced

Official press release

Sydney, Australia's premier extreme metal unit, The Amenta recently announced the departure of vocalist Jarrod Krafczyk and bassist Dale Harrison. The two have been replaced by Cain Cressall (Malignant Monster) and Dan Quinlan (Pain Division) respectively. The Amenta will showcase its new lineup at Against The Grain Festival (September 19th), and a series of Australian shows before the band embarks on the Monsters Of Death Tour in North America this fall with Vader, Decrepit Birth, Warbringer, Augury and Success Will Write Apocalypse Across The Sky.

Keyboardist Timothy Pope made the following remarks on the lineup changes: "Firstly we would like to thank Jarrod and Dale for all their hard work for the band. They both put in amazing effort throughout their time with us. We would also like to congratulate Dale on his impending fatherhood. The split was very amicable and we wish them all the best. That said we are very excited to have Cain and Dan on board.

Dan has been a friend for a long time and has worked with us a sound engineer in the past... He is a great bass player and his touring experience with Pain Division as well as his vocal abilities means that Dan has already become an invaluable asset to The Amenta.

Cain was our one and only choice when we parted ways with Jarrod. We played with his band Malignant Monster in Perth early this year and his performance was a very hard act to follow. He has an amazingly versatile voice coupled with the best stage presence we have ever seen. I know that with these two on board The Amenta will be the strongest we've ever been.

We are very excited to embark on our first ever North American tour. To be sharing a stage with our friends in Vader again will be amazing and I am looking forward to seeing the other bands in action. We are looking forward to showing off our new line up and I know that we are going to blow some minds.

After the tour we are going to get stuck into writing the follow up to last years, "n0n". I'm not sure what direction the album will take yet but you can rest assured that it will be extreme, challenging and unlike anything we, or anyone else, has done before.

It's been a great year for The Amenta and the Monsters of Death tour is the perfect end. Prepare yourselves North America. You haven't seen anything like us before."

No idea who the new members are but The Amenta are the premier band where industrial death metal are concerned so I hope they don't change much.

The singer is the old vocalist of Pathogen.
the new bassist is the singer/bass player of Pain Division, so i guess that fucks that band up pretty well.

Probably makes them yet another of those bands who come up with one great album and then fade away without ever reaching their full potential. Worst case scenario. Either way, vocalists and bassists seem to be having a hard time with getting kicked out of bands this year eh.
A mythology is a religion different enough from your own for it's absurdity to be obvious.
