Swedish melodic metallers INSANIA have parted ways with keyboardist Patrik Vastila. According to the group's web site, Patrik "decided to leave due to the lack of time for his studies. It's well known that Patrik is studying chemistry at the University of Stockholm and since it is a full-time job, it became evident [that] Patrik [had] to make a choice. The decision was taken by Patrik himself and there are no hard feelings between him and the rest of the band. The guys of INSANIA are greatful for the time they got with him and for what he did during the 10 years in INSANIA. So INSANIA wishes 'Dr Patrik' good luck with the studies and a great future life!" INSANIA's third album, "Fantasy", has just been released through No Fashion Records in Europe.
