HATE - Decide To Continue With The Band2013-04-26
Death metallers Hate have decided to continue with the band following the recent death of bassist Sławomir "Mortifer" Archangielskij. Mortifer's wife will accompany the band on some of their upcoming shows and Piotr Kołakowski will join them on others.
Statement from ATF Sinner: "Dear friends & fans, we would like you to know that we have decided to continue with the band and keep on doing our job as always. There is still a big hole in our hearts, but we do not want to focus on mourning over the tragedy. Instead we decide to focus on the band and keeping it alive as well as all the ideas we shared with Mortifer. We treat what we do as a mission and we cannot see the end of it. On some shows to come we will be accompanied by Mortifer's wife Alexandra on bass guitar. She has been in the business for some time and been involved in a few Russian bands before. As an experienced musician, she will undoubtedly manage on the stage with us. On other shows we will be joined by Piotr Kołakowski (Neyra), a talented musician who had previously been on stage with us as a session musician. The festivals below have been confirmed, but there are more to come soon."
