SCAR SYMMETRY – Part Ways With Bassist

After roughly two years as a member of Swedish metal act SCAR SYMMETRY, bass player Andreas Holma has been removed from the band’s line-up after purportedly backing out of some tour dates.

Scar Symmetry guitarist Per Nilsson has issued the following explanation:

“It is with disappointment and a sense of disbelief that we announce the departure of Andreas Holma from Scar Symmetry just weeks before our tour of Finland, Japan and the Baltic Sea. Andreas recently informed us that he couldn’t take part in these shows due to a scheduling conflict with another band that he’s playing with, even though the Scar Symmetry shows (that he agreed to do!) have been planned for several months and he’s had ample time to notify us about the situation...

BORN OF OSIRIS – Home Studio Robbed

BORN OF OSIRIS guitarist Lee McKinney had a handful of valuable items stolen on Monday night when the home he and his wife share was burglarized. According to McKinney, who is currently on tour, one of the intruders was armed with a knife. Among the valuables taken were five guitars and four guns. He had the following to say:

“Last night on Monday, March 11th, our home was burglarized. The intruder(s) entered through a second floor window and carried a knife that was left on the scene, which makes us feel as if they were willing to potentially do more than walk out with material items had someone been home. Stolen items include a TV, 5 guitars, 1 audio interface, 4 guns, 1 camera, and 1 amplifier.

“We have notified the local police and a full investigation is underway...
