Australia’s GOSPEL OF THE HORNS have split up. Here’s the official statement from Howitzer: "After 16 years of beer sweat and hell, I have decided to bring Gospel of the Horns to an end. We would like to thank the many friends we have made around the world during our journey… and hail to Darragh from Invictus for his unending support. He has given GOSPEL every opportunity to drive our thrashing mayhem out to all. The time is right to move on to new horizons, and we are content in knowing that we have given everything we had in our arsenal. Our final show will be on the 7th December 2008 with GRAVE in our home town of Melbourne. This show will be one hell of a mighty occasion! Give em hell."
