SYMPHORCE Calls It Quits

German melodic metallers SYMPHORCE, who feature in their ranks guitarist Cdric "Cede" Dupont and singer Andy B. Franck (BRAINSTORM), have officially called it quits.

Commented Franck: "Seven albums, 12 years and thousands of enthusiastic fans don't make that decision easy, but after long thoughts and lots of talks we decided together to call it a day and dissolve SYMPHORCE. The heads are dead, the timetables of our main bands packed with dates, so we feel a lack of inspiration and no possibility to record more albums, play more shows with the passion and commintment needed therefore.

"SYMPHORCE will always stand for an absolute independent type of metal, but with our latest (and last) album, 'Unrestricted', we had to recognize that we have said everything we wanted musically. It was an unbelievable, intense and fantastic time!

"We thank you all for your long lasting loyalty and the enthusiasm you have shown to us. We will never forget all this for sure.

"Of course, we will still remain with and in our other bands and will see us for sure somewhere somewhen on this planet. And therefore lights off spotlights on!

"All my heart, passion and soul is now one hundred percent BRAINSTORM, the new album, 'On The Spur Of The Moment', and the upcoming tours and festivals.

"But anyhow... thanks for 12 fantastic years, thanks for the fulfillment of a dream! It was AMAZING!"

SYMPHORCE's latest album, "Unrestricted", came out on October 15 via AFM Records.
