"After 14 years of great musical adventures, drummer Pat Hamelin has decided to leave the band MARTYR due to personal reasons. We all wish him well. The remaining members of MARTYR are unsure about the future of the band, as there has been a lot of undergoing tensions through the last years that was not taken care of, thus resulting in a frustrating negative vibe that would stagnate creativity and motivation. MARTYR is on hold for now. More news to come later. Thanks for your support over all these years!!"
MARTYR's third studio album, "Feeding the Abscess", was released in October 2006 via Galy Records. The CD was recorded and mixed by Pierre Rémillard (ANVIL, GORGUTS, CRYPTOPSY, KRISIUN) and was mastered by Alan Douches. MARTYR's back catalog was also reissued through Galy Records. The "Hopeless Hopes" (1997) album was re-released with a stunning new booklet, while both "Hopeless Hopes" and "Warp Zone" (2000) were remastered by Yannick St-Amand and contain four bonus tracks.
