in a recent interview Rob (The Baron) Miller has made the following statement;
To my deep regret Amebix has now come to a point where we can no longer continue as a Band. We have spent the past five years engaged in a process of resurrecting this group from the ashes, and feel very proud of what we have managed to achieve in that time, both in the live performances and also in the album that resulted from this extraordinary time. Sonic Mass is a worthy successor to all of our earlier work, bringing a lot of our original impetus and ideas into clear focus, it was an unparalleled success for us both critically and artistically.
The hope was that we would be able to Tour the album and get our music out to a broadening audience,but there are factors within the band dynamic which will not allow for that in the foreseeable future. Personally i feel a great disappointment over this and that has in turn led me to this difficult decision. Amebix was and is the creation and brainchild of both myself and my brother Stig, with either of us absent it is no longer Amebix.
However, the intention is to continue moving onwards and upwards. Roy and I (Roy Mayorga, Stone Sour/Amebix drummer, engineer, producer) are currently working together on new material, with a view to a new incarnation of the Amebix legacy, flying under a different banner. We hope to be in a position to make further announcements in the coming year via www.amebix.net.
Amebix has ceased to be a functioning creative partnership over the past year or so, for a wide variety of reasons. A Doctor would recommend cutting off a limb to save the body, an artist might say follow the river to new pastures, this is a bit of both, no blame.
Whilst the Internet is a place full of conjecture, rumour and lies i personally dont wish to get further involved in a public discussion, things will gradually take a new shape.
Peace and love to all, and thank you all for your support and encouragement over these past few years
