After 9 years it is time to say goodbye to Dying Empire with a heavy heart. Big (farewell) words are not really my thing, but I would still like to get rid of a few things: The band was a reliable anchor in life, especially in turbulent times, and I am grateful, as well as for all the unforgettable moments we have experienced together. There were a number of highlights, a tour through southern Europe, numerous concerts in clubs and at open air events. We spent countless hours in the rehearsal room, in the studio, on the freeway and in various backstage areas, sharing both professional and private things with one another.

I will always keep in my heart the many years that I was able to be a part of this great band. Now, however, new tasks await me and I want to devote myself fully to my family. I thank my colleagues for the time together and wish them all the best for the future in his band! And I would also like to thank all supporters, fans, concertgoers, organizers, producers and everyone I forgot for making the last few years possible in this way.

Until then,
