QUO VADIS Leader Issues Videotaped Message

Guitarist and composer Bart Frydrychowicz of the Montreal-based technical death metallers QUO VADIS has released a video message (see below) addressing the rumors surrounding the band's recent personnel changes and its future.

QUO VADIS' Montreal concert on September 6, although a resounding success along the lines of the band's past hometown shows, went down in the wake of several anonymous messages released directly to the press.

Frydrychowicz had been faced with news about bandmembers while recovering from injuries sustained in both his knees and being unable to walk since the September 6 show. Now that the dust is settled, Bart is determined to clear the air, salute the fans and put the rumor mills to rest.

In the video, the artist and producer speaks out on the truth about QUO VADIS, scheduled shows to be announced soon, lineup changes, and the approaching release of new material.

The fans are assured that QUO VADIS is alive and well and that great things are to come in the near future.

"This is to dispel the rumours circulated on the internet. First of all QUO VADIS is not finished. There will be lineup changes and most importantly new material," says Frydrychowicz.

The departure of Yanic Bercier, the band's original drummer, is also addressed.

"Yanic has been an integral part of QUO VADIS since the band's inception. His skill on the kit, his energy on stage will be very difficult to match... I wish him great success in all his endeavours," states Frydrychowicz

Bart also extended his gratitude to the staff and crew of BCI and credited Stephan Mellul for his role in making the September 6 show an event to remember. The show also featured DESPISED ICON, NEURAXIS, BLINDED BY FAITH and PLASMARIFLE and enjoyed a total attendance of over 1,400 metalheads.
