Vocalist Ski has officially left South Jersey power metal gods DEADLY BLESSING. In a statement announcing his decision, the singer said, "Well, all good things must come to and end, I must move on. I just wanted to thank all [the fans] for your love and support through all the years with blessing; it's been a fun ride. I will now carry the torch in my new American Christian power metal band called FAITH FACTOR."

As previously reported, a video clip of DEADLY BLESSING performing a cover of LIZZY BORDEN's "Notorious" live at the Boricua Metal Fest III in Cayey, Puerto Rico last Saturday (November 11) has been posted online at YouTube.com.

DEADLY BLESSING's version of "Notorious" is slated to appear on the LIZZY BORDEN tribute album, entitled "Baptized in Blood", to be released via Metallicarchangel Records. Other bands that are expected to appear on the CD include TWISTED TOWER DIRE ("Godiva"), ICARUS WITCH ("Rod of Iron"), FAITH FACTOR ("American Metal"), MALAKIS REIGN ("Hell is for Heroes"), MYSTIC FORCE ("Me Against the World"), OCTOBER 31 ("No Time to Lose"), IMMORTAL AVENGER ("Be One of Us"), SOLEMNITY ("Visions"), SILENCE, MOBSCENE, STRONGHOLD and LIGEIA.

DEADLY BLESSING recorded "Notorious" in early March 2006. According to DEADLY BLESSING vocalist Ski, the recording sessions — which marked the band's first time in the studio since the recording of their classic "Ascend from the Cauldron" in 1988 — "went great."
