USIPIAN Calls It Quits

Danish "apocalyptic" old-school death metallers USIPIAN have issued the following update:

"We are sorry to announce that USIPIAN no longer exists due to differences within the band in regard to musical direction. The final testament of USIPIAN will be a MCD/7-inch EP containing three tracks recently recorded in Sweet Silence Studios with Flemming Rasmussen (METALLICA, MORBID ANGEL, ARTILLERY, KING DIAMOND). More info will be posted at www.usipian.com and www.myspace.com/usipian. MP3 samples will be added soon.

"Toke [Eld, vocals], Jeppe [Hasseriis, guitar] and Andreas [Lynge, guitar] have formed a new yet unnamed band and Kent [Værens, bass] and Nis [R. Larsen, drums] will later on form a new death metal band. Nis and Jeppe will continue playing in STRYCHNOS. Kent will continue playing in VARDLOKKUR, HOLMGANG and ANGANTYR.

"We wish to thank all the people, bands and magazines that have supported USIPIAN throughout the years."

USIPIAN's debut album, "Dead Corner of the Eye", was released in July 2005 via Metal Fortress. The album's artwork was painted by legendary artist Dan Seagrave. Additional vocals on the tracks "Selfless" and "Shadows of the Once Unseen" were provided by by Martin Rosendahl of CORPUS MORTALE.
