We've covered a lot of band break ups here on Metal Injection, so much so that we have an entire category dedicated to it. But I don't think we've ever read a break up announcement as metal as this.
You would be forgiven if you haven't heard of Toronto's Witchrot. Before this breakup announcement had gone viral, their social media numbers were in the triple digits, now it's exploded, but unfortunately it's too late for the band. Here is the breakup announcement:
“Due to the unfortunate reality of our guitarist fucking my girlfriend of almost 7 years WITCHROT will be taking an extended hiatus. I however will continue the band in another space and time, being ripe with hate the music is slowly flowing and without a doubt will become the most devastating, torturous music I have ever created. Thanks for the support, stay heavy – Peter
“Also our drummer died…”
You really don't get the entire picture until you see the accompanying photo…
It's…just… so METAL!
