So if they hired a drummer who in their opinion wasn't very good what's that say about them? I have doubts death metal drummers are that hard to come by.

And now an editorial reply.....with no paragraph breaks apparently:

The decision to replace our now x drummer Gus Rios has been in the works for the last 6 month's.The decision became final after the recording of our new album and the cancellation of our show in Chicago January 25th,2014 after our drummer Gus contacted the promoter and changed our flight's to Chicago from early Friday the 24th to the day of the show on the 25th.Without telling anyone in the band until a week before the show.That resulted in a huge problem within the band and ultimately our flights to Chicago were cancelled that Saturday,January 25th due to an ice storm coming through Chicago that afternoon.That day we decided we were firing Gus from the band and contacted our former and now new drummer Justin Dipinto who played with and recorded the Malevolent Creation album "The Will To Kill" in 2002.There have been to many problems with Gus since he began filling in as our drummer in 2009 to mention,but the fact that he recorded/programmed/edited the drum parts on our last 2 recordings was really the final nail in the coffin.We have recorded many albums since 1990 and they were all recorded as a band playing with a drummer live in the studio until the drums were perfect for each song.This is now our 2nd recording that nobody was present for when the drums were recorded and on our newest album "The Path Of Malevolence" Chapter 1 i had to record my guitar to a click track and then Gus recorded/programmed and edited his drum tracks to the music.Anyone who has been playing music as long as we have knows a real band does not record like that.And the fake sounding and edited kick drums are something we have avoided all these years until Gus entered the picture.Because of all the problems the promoter in Chicago (Boris The Russian Gorilla)had to go through and money he lost due to that whole mess,he rescheduled the Chicago show for April 12th and got us all new flight's.The band decided that we would do one final show with Gus in Chicago April 12th and then tell him his services were no longer needed.This has been known to all the band members and Boris the promoter and our close friends and new drummer Justin since January 25th.Unfortunately for us someone told Gus about our plans and of course he texted everyone in the band and said he quit after hearing the news.As for the "Gay" comment i made about Gus i apologize,it is hard for me to refer to him as anything else but the nickname he has had long before i ever met him which is "Gay Gus"!Anyone that knows him or has met him refers to him by that name.If he is gay,i do not know personally,but it has crossed my mind many times over the years i have known him.Only he knows the truth and whoever gave him the nickname surely does.I have gay family members and friends and that has never been a problem for me,so i do apologize for making the comment and to the people that found it offending.NOW we have a great new drummer playing with us,a great new release coming out soon and many tours and festivals planned for 2014 and beyond!!! We wish Gus the best of luck doing whatever it is he does, but we are mostly excited to be playing with a drummer that loves metal music as much as we do and look forward to playing songs we haven't played in many years and new ones as well.I apologize for all the confusion in the last 24 hours,but we were planning on having Gus play a final show in Chicago April 12th,but atleast fans can hear Malevolent Creation play a special set list of songs with our new drummer Justin DiPinto who can play anything from our back catalog and newest release!!! Thank you Justin! And welcome back!!!!
