Vocalist I.N.R.I. of Louisiana's black/death metal veterans CATHOLICON has issued the following update:
"It has come to my attention that [drummer] Statutorist a.k.a. MPR is leaving CATHOLICON after eight-plus years of excellent and dedicated service to The Satanic Elite. While I am not at all happy about his decision or some of the reasons behind it, I also can't blame him for some of them. This being said, myself and the rest of CATHOLICON wish him the best in his future.
"So, with his departure, we are now seeking a dedicated replacement that can fill his shoes and throne behind the kit. We are extremely anti-social misanthropes who will only want serious like-minded individuals of the left hand path to apply. No dopeheads, racists or anyone other than Satanists or atheists need apply. Serious inquires only. You can contact us at our MySpace page if interested. We have a kit and all equipment you would need but it would be best if all wishing to try out do as well. Must be willing to play shows locally as well as out of state for little to no money as you all know this type of music pays nothing.
"For the fans, thanks for your continued support over the last 15-plus years and rest assured that while this will slow us down for a while The Satanic Elite will return with a vengeance and continue to rape the minds of all with our twisted musical visions!!! Our new album, 'Of Ages Past', will be out soon and will include a DVD-R, including every demo recording we have done over the years as well as some live recordings and a killer video by the one and only Misty Haze!!!"
