It’s been one hell of a week in the Morbid Angel camp. And by “Morbid Angel camp” we mean “Trey Azagthoth and whoever else.” While David Vincent apparently found out he was no longer in the band the same way we did, he then did what any rational person would do and denied that he wasn’t in the band any more. It appears there was a bit of miscommunication, and Vincent’s publicist recently sent out the following:
DAVID VINCENT Encourages Fans To Stay Morbid
I had good communication with Trey yesterday and we agree that there are incompatibilities with regards to us working together.Trey and I have accomplished amazing things together over the past 30 years and I wish him the best with his future projects. Out of respect for the legacy of these accomplishments, I encourage Morbid Angel fans to not take sides because, I am not.I look forward to sharing my new endeavors with all of you in the near future. Until then, stay Morbid! ~David Vincent
At least there’s some degree of closure, with Vincent admitting that he’s out of the band and taking the high road. Also, Vincent’s “new endeavors” won’t have the Morbid Angel name attached to it.
