Terror’s Scott Vogel Rants Onstage Against Refused, Footage Available

Terror frontman Scott Vogel has apparently taken issue with Refused‘s reunion. Vogel took the time to lash out against the band during their recent set at the “Groezrock” in Meerhout, Belgium—a show that also later featured a set from Refused. Metal Sucks got wind of footage of the rant, which you can view below:

Coliseum And Bassist Mike Pascal Part Ways

Coliseum have parted ways with bassist Mike Pascal. Band frontman/guitarist Ryan Patterson issued the following statement on the matter:

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce that Mike Pascal will no longer be a member of Coliseum. For over seven years, Mike has been our bass player and like a younger brother to me. He joined the band in Fall 2004 for our first extended tour and made his recorded debut in Coliseum on the Goddamage EP a few months later, playing every show since then and on every following release.

We’ve traveled the world together and had more great times than I can count. While this is difficult at the moment, Mike‘s departure from the band is the right thing for him and I know we will all be better for it.

There are certainly times when I’ve considered throwing in the towel and putting an end to Coliseum, but ultimately I remain as inspired and passionate about the band as ever. There are always peaks and valleys and there have been times when I felt like we were fighting a losing battle, but the good has always outweighed the bad.

Coliseum played its first show just over eight years ago and I am humbled by all we’ve accomplished, all the people we’ve met, all the places we’ve played, all the bands we’ve toured with and all of the great guys who have been members of the band. I feel incredibly lucky to continue to have Carter as a bandmate and Temporary Residence as our label.

We are very excited about the new material we’ve been writing and look forward to recording the fourth Coliseum album this Fall.

We will play our show with Tragedy in Louisville on May 18th with a friend filling in on bass and will take our time finding a new permanent member. Thanks for your continued support, it means the world to us.
