As you may have noticed we informed a couple of weeks ago that Parasite City has no drummer anymore. Official statement is as follows: Ilari decided to leave the band because of personal reasons and that is final. No big drama or musical differences. Case closed.
As for the rest of the band we decided to put ourselves on hiatus for now. You will be the first to know when we get up and running again and start possibly searching for a new drummer!
Meanwhile, as a christmas gift from us to you we added some golden oldies and bonus tracks from Minstrel's Creed japanese version on our MySpace
Song are in chronological order:
Roller and Nymphomaniac are from our second demo "Demonic Too" from year 2003
Wasted Youth and Touché are from "Foreplay" EP released in 2004
Secretly Mine is single version from year 2005 and it's produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa
Don't Give Up was recorder on Minstrel sessions. Hanging Around and Packet of fame were recorder on promo cd in 2007, All these songs were released as bonus tracks.
Rest of the songs are from albums "10 Hits To K.O." and "Minstrel's Creed"
