Detroit metallers HALLOWEEN have issued the following update:"Due to a difference in artistic vision, HALLOWEEN and Donny Allen [guitar] have decided to part ways. Donny has been a staple in this band for over 16 years and we love him like a brother, he will always be family and we hope the best for him. Good luck, Donny. "MOURNING SUN/NIGHT CREATURE guitarist extraordinaire Don Guerrier and ABANDON axeslinger Shawn Moore have joined the band. After only one rehearsal with these two, we were blown away by how great it sounded, and we are very excited by the possibilities that are already starting to present themselves. We can't wait to get this new line up out for some shows, we know you will be just as blown away as we are. "We are close to finishing up the new disc, 'Terrortory'. The basic mix is set, the editing is almost finished, and the guitar solos are being done as we speak. There are a few really cool surprises on this disc that we know all you fans of Detroit metal are going to love. That's all that we can say about that for now (don't wanna spoil the surprise). As soon as we get some of the mixes finalized, we will be putting a couple of tracks up for everyone to check out." For more information, visit www.halloweentheband.us.
