In a message from Swedish melodic death metallers THE COLD EXISTENCE: “Joakim [Antonsson] decided to leave the band to concentrate more on his other band Nox Aurea. There are no hard feelings between the band and Joakim for this and we wish him good luck with his other band.
We are in the middle of writing for our new album that will be released on Pulverised Records later this year and PTR Derenius from Swedish band Maleficio will contribute with his drumming on this album. Basisst Peter Laustsen has played with PTR before and can promise that his skills will give the band the little extra we are looking for. — THE COLD EXISTENCE”
