Anglo-Swedish metal group Sonic Syndicate parted ways with bassist Karin Axelsson and recruited Michel Bärzén (Degradead), revealing this development on August 7th, 2015.

Karin Axelsson issued the following statement: “As most of you know by now, I haven’t been touring with my boys in Sonic for a while.

“Sonic Syndicate has been my family and my life for many years and I’ve met so many great people and experienced things I never thought I would. I’ve had the time of my life — so many of my dreams have come true in so many ways — but sometimes you have to make hard choices in life, and it’s time for me to move on, because I am in a place where I need to focus on my family and private life.

“I hope you understand my decision.

“I would like to thank all you guys who came out to our shows for your endless love and support. It has meant so much to me and the guys that we could never express in words how we feel.

“Before I officially go and start my new life, I’d like to ask you one more thing. Please take care of the boys, my brothers, because I love them with all of my heart, and although we’ll keep contact and see each other from time to time, I will truly miss them and the music we’ve made together.

“So, with everything above said and done, I would like to officially introduce Miche to the Sonic Syndicate family. What I ask from you guys is to please open your hearts for this great guy who’s an awesome bass player and give him a warm welcome.”

Axelsson occupied the bass position for an 11-year period between 2004 and 2015, appearing on all of Sonic Syndicate’s five full-lengths issued between 2005 and 2014, namely; Eden Fire (2005), Only Inhuman (2007), Love And Other Disasters (2008), We Rule The Night (2010), and Sonic Syndicate (2014). Between 2002 and 2005, Sonic Syndicate had operated under the moniker Fallen Angels.
