Guitarist Paulo Schroeber has decided to depart Brazilian metal band Almah, due to “health problems.”
I hope it’s nothing too serious.
“I think many of you already know about health problems that our brother, partner and member of the band, Paulo Schroeber, has recently faced,” explained lead singer Edu Falaschi.
“Due to these problems, we had to call another guitarist to replace him at the latest Almah shows during ‘Motion’ tour, but we always hoped that Paulo would be with us again very soon. Unfortunately, a very serious heart problem made it impossible for our friend to continue his long-term works, and we received his message that he had to leave the band!
“All of us became extremely sad but at the same moment we respect his decision to stay with his family at such a delicate moment,” Falaschi continues.
“For us, there remains only one thing: to keep public our eternal support, love and, most of all, gratitude for all the great moments we had together! We are very happy to know that his treatment is going on and the diagnosis is positive.
“The band is here with all its energy and now it’s even stronger because we do what we love and ‘cos we respect all the dedication of our friend Paulo over these years of hard work and fun.
“The name of new Almah’s guitarist will be revealed soon, together with announcement of new ways of the band and tour dates for 2012.”
