LECHEROUS NOCTURNE, the Greenville, South Carolina-based extreme metal band featuring NILE guitarist Dallas Toler-Wade on drums, have parted ways with bassist Joe Payne due to "lack of experience and enthusiasm," according to a statement released by the group's guitarist, Chris Lollis. "The slot has already been [filled] in a matter of minutes by a name undisclosed that is guaranteed to fulfill the entire job at hand that in which Joe Payne could not handle," says Lollis. "Us here in LECHEROUS NOCTURNE wish Joe the best of luck in his future endeavours and hope that the metal gods smile down upon the undeserving."LECHEROUS NOCTURNE are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album, "Adoration of the Blade", at SoundLab Studio in Columbia, SC. The band expect to complete the effort by the end of the month. Some of the 10 tracks set to appear on the album are "The Divine Wind", "Release in Flame", and "Coitus Per Anum".
