Hungarian metallers EKTOMORF have parted ways with Tamás Schrottner (guitar), Szabolcs Murvai (bass) and Róbert Jaksa (drums) due to "personal differences" and have replaced them with Szebasztián Simon, Attila Asztalos and Dániel Szabó, respectively.
EKTOMORF guitarist/vocalist Zoltán Farkas states: "After many years of touring and playing together, Tomi, Robi and Szabi decided to leave the band due to personal differences. They left on their own will; it was their own decision to leave. I respect their decision and will separate in peace. I wish them nothing but the best in their life with success and health. Will miss them a lot and thank them for everything! I think we will keep all the great memories forever! They also wanted to say thanks for the fans who provided some of their best time in their life — serving heavy music around the world!"
EKTOMORF's new album, "Fury", will be released on February 16, 2018 via AFM. The cover artwork for the disc was created by Chris Blomenkemper and Andrew Krasnoff and can be seen below.

A snippet of the new song "The Prophet Of Doom" performed by the new lineup of EKTOMORF can be heard in the clip below.
Earlier this year, before the latest shakeup, Farkas told Acta Infernalis about EKTOMORF's personnel changes: "A lineup change shouldn't affect anything except… You know, things happen like if someone wants to go, then go. This is our idea, but when I was, like, 14-15 years old and I made the band, it hurt really much. And I wanted to keep someone there because I thought it was going to be forever. But now, I know it's not. Of course, I'm 41 years old now, and if some problem comes up between the four of us, we sit down and talk, that's the way. And we try to solve the problems because we want to stay together because the lineup we have now, it's really strong. So, in the past, the lineup changes… I didn't regret any."
