Demonic Resurretion Keyboardist Mephisto parts with the Band!

mephisto1 Mephisto, keyboardist for Indian metal veterans Demonic Resurrection issued the following statement  via the band’s Facebook page.
14 years is a long time. 
In Jan 2003 I joined the band when everyone advised against it.
Ridicule followed. Friends tried to break up the newly formed line-up. We even had stones and cigarette butts thrown at us at Independence Rock.

 

We endured.
In 2005 we released what is now called a landmark release in the history of Indian Metal – A Darkness Descends. We were changing perceptions. Album after album we pushed our musical and even geographical boundaries by playing at some incredible festivals both in India and abroad. Despite multiple line-up changes, the one thing that remained constant was that rhythm and synth were always in sync.

The upcoming album.
To be honest, it sounds very good. But the creative differences are far too great for me to ignore. And I cannot have that on my conscience. Which is why after 14 glorious years, I’ve decided to step down as an active full-time member of the band.

 mephisto2The future.
At some point I would like to release some music on my own. I wish the band more success. They are not only talented musicians but amazing people too and if they ever need my services to perform live again, I’ll always be available.

Thank you and goodbye.
I’d like to say a special and heartfelt thank you to Demonstealer for providing me with the opportunity to be a part of this awesome journey. The times I’ve spent with the band have been the best. But at this point I believe this is the right thing to do. I hope the fans understand my decision and continue to support the band.

Cheers and stay demonic
– Mephisto
