Arsis Drummer Quits
Mike Van Dyne has quit Arsis.
The drummer and founding member for the Virginia-based melodic tech-death metal masters claims “it’s time to move forward and pursue my career full-time.”
Mike says “The last fully-completed Arsis song I contributed to was ‘Since The Shadows’ (released online last year), and it’s one of my favorites.
“Through the years, I’ve accomplished everything in music I wanted to do. Not many people can say that, and I consider myself fortunate for having so many great experiences.”
Van Dyne performed on Arsis’ highly-acclaimed debut album, A Celebration Of Guilt as well as the follow-ups A Diamond For Disease and United In Regret.
No word yet on who will replace him, or if the band’s still going to remain active.
I hope they do.
