part ways with guitarist - 2005-08-26

2005-08-26 - Sweden's DEATHSTARS have parted ways with guitarist Erik &quot;Beast X Electric&quot; Halvorsen.<br><br>The group's official statement on the matter reads as follows:<br>&quot; Due to lack of enthusiasm and living too far away from the band's location in Stockholm, Sweden, Beast X Electric's no longer a part of DEATHSTARS.<br><br>&quot;It has for a longer time been a problem for the band with the huge distance from Beast X Electric's hometown on the Swedish West Coast to Stockholm, and the problem with getting everything to function timewise has taken too much energy for Beast X as well as for the rest of the band.<br><br>&quot;DEATHSTARS is now reduced to only four members. Nightmare plays both guitars on the upcoming album, titled &raquo;Termination Bliss&laquo;. The band and Beast X are still the best of friends and the former guitarist will always be a huge part of DEATHSTARS' spirit.<br><br>&quot;On the upcoming tours, DEATHSTARS probably will use a session guitarist. Information on who that&#8217;ll be will be presented when that decision is made.<br><br>&quot;Beast X would like to thank all fans for a 'motherfuckin' great time' and says that he in the nearest future will try to extend his collection of Harley Davidson motorcycles.&quot;<br><br>Commented Beast X Electric: &quot;DEATHSTARS will always be huge part of my life and the times with the band have resulted in more memories than an average person collects in a lifetime. &quot;<br><br>DEATHSTARS' debut album, <a href="http://shop.nuclearblast.de/index_spezial_nr.php?artikelnr=123892" target="_blank"><u>&raquo;Synthetic Generation&laquo;</u></a>, was released in November 2003.<br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=674"><u>DEATHSTARS</u></a>&quot;
