Florida death metal act DIABOLIC have parted ways with drummer Aantar Coates shortly after the completion of their recent European tour.The following is the group's official statement on the matter: "DIABOLIC has returned from their first European tour accompanied by a bittersweet sense of success. Even though DIABOLIC's overall experience in Europe was excellent, several long-prevailing problems caused a rift between drummer Aantar Coates and the rest of the band. After careful consideration, founding member Brian Malone made the difficult decision to ask that Aantar leave the band. DIABOLIC wishes the best of luck to Aantar and is grateful for his work over the past years."
