Aussie thrashers Mortal Sin have called it a day. Formed in 1985, rumors of break-up had been circulating for some time already. Guitarist Ryan Huthnance, who joined the band in 2010, had this to say:
“It’s time the rumours were laid to rest. Yes, Mortal Sin is finished. Due to changing personal circumstances, as well as priorities, Luke [Cook, drums] and Nathan [Shea, guitar] have both decided that their time with the band is at an end. This decision was not made lightly, and was not a result of the actions and words made by other parties who would lead you to believe it was. The truth is, without passion, conviction, and love for the music you play, being in a band means nothing.”
“While Andy [Eftichiou, bass], Dave [Tinelt, vocals] and myself could easily continue and find new band members, without the core songwriting unit from the last two albums, it wouldn’t be Mortal Sin.”
“On behalf of Mortal Sin, I’d like to thank you — the fans — for staying loyal to a band that’s had more ups and downs than any other in Australia. Without you, this journey would have ended long ago.”
Eftichiou was the last remaining original member, with the rest of the band having joined in recent years.
Well hello there!
