Hate Eternal : Derek Roddy resign as a member"Real life situations have forced me to resign as a member of HATE ETERNAL.
I can on longer afford the expenses of touring. I have put MUCH thought into this for the last several years and kept coming to this conclusion. I must be able to afford the quality of life that I enjoy, and thus far... touring in extreme bands has not allowed me to do anything other than go into a financial hole. Every tour has put me in financial burden. Now, I'm not complaining (because I never expected to 'make it' playing metal) But, I cannot continue to pay to do it either!!! Too expensive. Besides, I value the scene and would rather GIVE my music away than be insulted at the end of the year with a $600.00 royalty check! This, in NO WAY, means I won't be recording and releasing extreme music. In fact, you will hear more from me (as I now have the freedom to do what I want when I want.)
I wish Hate Eternal the best of luck."
