REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE, die Band von Ex-STRATOVARIUS Mastermind Timo Tolkki, hat sich mit sofortiger Wirkung aber trotzdem anscheinend in aller Freundschaft, von ihrem Bassisten Justin Biggs und ihrem Keyboarder Michael Khalilov getrennt.
"During the recordings of [the second REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE album], 'Age of Aquarius', it became evident to everybody that REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE was not the right band for the guys. Justin is more of a thrash guy and Mike expected the music to be something totally different. Out of these reasons the decision has been made that it is better to go separate ways. Both are great guys and the remaining members — Timo Tolkki [guitar], Gus Monsanto [vocals] and Bruno Agra [drums] — wish them well and best of luck on their musical endeavors. Check out the new album of Mike's band EMPYREON from iTunes and Justin's band DESCEND."
