Finnish metallers POISONBLACK have announced they are laying the band to rest, via their official Facebook page. Vocalist and guitarist Ville Laihiala stated:
“Greetings oxygen spenders. After these last 15 years we have reached the point in our career that it’s time to stop and think about the future. Thou it has been a great ride with ups and downs, great friends, audiences and whatever has been thrown at us, we’re going to hit the brakes now and lay the band to rest. For how long remains to be seen. As you all know, it has to be 100% or not at all. Personally, I really have to think about that long and hard.
On behalf of the band I want to thank the people who have supported us throughout the years. Labels, managers, promoters, clubs, festivals, crews… and especially the fans. Without you this could not have been possible.
Take care y’all
POISONBLACK formed in 2000 and have released six studio albums, the last being “Lyijy” in 2013 and reached #4 on the Finnish chart.
