This Toronto Metal Band Just Broke Up in the Most Amazing Way Possible
You may have never heard of the Toronto metal band Witchrot before, but that may change now that the group are going viral for breaking up in perhaps the most spectacular way possible.

Over the weekend, Witchrot member Peter Turik took to social media to inform followers that his band would be taking an "extended hiatus," but in the most brutal — and perhaps metal — way imaginable.

The breakup note reads as follows:

Due to the unfortunate reality of our guitarist fucking my girlfriend of almost 7 years Witchrot will be taking an extended hiatus," the statement begins. "I however will continue the band in another space and time, being ripe with hate the music is slowly flowing and without a doubt will become the most devastating, torturous music I have ever created. Thanks for the support, stay heavy

Also our drummer died...



Since then, the message has gone on to be shared nearly 10,000 times as of press time, and it's since exploded on Twitter, even catching the eye of novelist Neil Gaiman.

You can see some of the growing reaction below. In other words, R.I.P. Witchrot. May you always live on in the Great Cyber Graveyard of the Beyond.
