DIET OF WORMS, the Florida-based band featuring SAVATAGE singer Damond Jiniya and MORBID ANGEL producer Juan "Punchy" Gonzalez, have officially split up. "Some of us gave it a good fight.

"The [DIET OF WORMS] web site still functions and it will still possible to obtain DIET OF WORMS merchandise.

"Thanks to all whom have supported this music and thanks to all who will continue to enjoy it.
