South Florida cult death metal act HIBERNUS MORTIS have officially called it quits. Drummer Cesar Placeres' statement on the matter reads as follows:

"It's with sad regret I have to announce that we are calling it quits. I don't wanna get too sappy, even though it does make me kind of at a loss for words. But what it all boils down to is all these years of slacking has finally caught up with us. Even though we've played tons of shows over the years with everybody from MORBID ANGEL and MAYHEM to TESTAMENT and MACABRE and countless others, as well as having a modest following in other countries....we've never really accomplished getting out of Florida on a grander scale. In 10 years we only had about 14 songs, one full-length LP, one EP, and a few other recordings that were never really released. We just started out playing brutal 'dirty' death metal, and we never wanted it to sound polished, that was against everything we stood for, and we never gave in, and we never conformed....that is one thing I'll always be proud of. Stuff has been pretty unproductive since Ralf left the band last year and it hasn't felt right ever since and there has been a huge lack of interest from 'all of us.'

"I wanna thank all the current members and wish them luck in their other bands and future endeavors. We had many line-ups over the years, and with me being the only last original member, I wanna thank every single person who's ever played in this band. Ralf Varela, David Miller, Adam Fleury, Doug Humlack, Yasser Morales, Alex Campbell, and Adrian Esquivel. I also wanna thank all the great bands we've played with over the years, local as well as national. There will be no 'goodbye shows,' it's just done with.

"I might eventually start another band; it remains to be seen if it's with any other HIBERNUS members. But what is for sure is HIBERNUS has had a bad aura looming around it for the last couple of years, so if I do continue playing....I have to start fresh, and create something new.

"I just wanna close this chapter of the last 10 years of my life by saying thanks to everybody who's ever come to our shows, or ever bought a CD, or requested us on the radio, or even said 'you guys are awesome.' It's always been appreciated and still means a lot to this day."
