BRUTAL TRUTH: Dan Lilker si ritira

altCon un lungo comunicato lo storico bassista Dan Lilker (tra i tanti progetti S.O.D. Nuclear Assault, Venomous Concept) ha annunciato il suo ritiro dalle scene e di conseguenza lo scioglimento dei Brutal Truth.

Stando a quanto scritto a partire dal 18 ottobre, data del suo cinquantesimo compleanno, Lilker si dedicherà solamente ai side-project (Nokturnal Hellstorm e Blurring)  che lo vedono coinvolto nella città in cui vive e non farà più "tour lunghi ed estenuanti incastrato in un van" e si dedicherà a tempo pieno alla sua vita personale.

Di seguito un estratto del comunicato:

"A Message From Dan Lilker

I regret to inform Brutal Truth fans that as of October 18th, 2014, I will be retiring from being a full time recording and touring musician. That date is my 50th birthday, so I chose it symbolically as a significant milestone to make such a weighty decision. As a lot of you know, I've been an active member of the metal scene since the early 80s with the thrash metal bands I've been in before the formation of Brutal Truth in 1990, and I'm simply just tired of the rigors of touring mostly. Unlike some of my peers from the 80's who went on to sell millions of records I have always been drawn to extreme underground metal. I don't care about staying in 5 star hotels and having a big cushy tour bus but I am getting tired of squeezing into a van for 8 hours after all these years on the road. I have always played what I believe in and that is been priority #1, but the time has come to have a little bit more stability in my life."

A noi non resta che dire Goodbye, cruel world.
