Former SKYCLAD Singer Accused Of 'Unprofessional Behavior' And 'Defamation Of Character'

The following statement was issued by the members of the U.K. band THE CLAN DESTINED:

"Due to unprofessional behavior & defamation of character by Martin Walkyier [ex-SKYCLAD] against Iscariah [ex-IMMORTAL], we, the undersigned members of THE CLAN DESTINED have, unanimously and without hesitation, decided to leave the band. Because all THE CLAN DESTINED music was written, performed and recorded by us, these tracks will be reclaimed and used in a new band. This new line-up will be announced very shortly. We would like to thank all fans, partners, producers, contributors, friends and forum members of THE CLAN DESTINED for their incredible support and patience in waiting for the THE CLAN DESTINED release, and guarantee their wait will not have been in vain.

"With the release of this statement, the following band members have now officially left THE CLAN DESTINED:

Iscariah (a.k.a. Stian Smorholm)
Kara Sultan
Tony Wildwood
Lee Cassidy
Emily Dolan Davies

"We would also like to thank the following THE CLAN DESTINED members for their invaluable contribution. These members left at different times but for the same reasons as outlined above.
