ELEXORIEN Parts Ways With Singer

Dutch "epic battle metal" band ELEXORIEN has parted ways with vocalist Iné Zijlstra. The group states, "Due to personal differences, we no longer feel we are a solid unit, and we were left with no other choice but to go separate ways."

Iné comments: "Although it hurts inside, I've made the decision to leave ELEXORIEN. Due to some personal issues, I feel like I cannot put a hundred percent effort in this band at the moment.

"Being the singer of ELEXORIEN has been an amazing experience; I absolutely love making music, being on stage, going on tours and having fun. The recent South America tour is a fantastic memory forever. It was a great honor to perform for you, the fans. Maybe you will see me in other musical projects in the future.

"I want to thank ELEXORIEN for all the good times we shared and wish them all the best for the future. I hope the band will be on stage again very soon! Especially I would like to thank you, the fans, and everyone who helped me or ELEXORIEN the last five years. You're the best, I will never forget you!"

According to ELEXORIEN's official bio, the band has been influenced by such acts as THYRFING, MOONSORROW, BAL-SAGOTH, and OLD MAN'S CHILD. ELEXORIEN "creates an extremely powerful sound which is jam-packed full of catchy melodies, blazing drums, majestic keys, growls and classically trained female vocals."

ELEXORIEN's debut album was released in April 2007 via Germany's Trollzorn/SMP Records. The CD was recorded at Jörg Uken's Soundlodge Studios in Rhauderfehn, Germany.
