Chris Amott Leaves GHOST SHIP OCTAVIUS

Monday, 26th August 2013

Guitarist Chris Amott (ex-ARCH ENEMY) has posted the following update:

“I’ve decided to step away from the GHOST SHIP OCTAVIUS project. So, I am no longer involved with that. Best of luck to the rest of the guys. I’m focusing entirely on a new ARMAGEDDON album. We are in rehearsals at the moment. There’s a lot of news to be announced, new members and so forth. We have almost completed writing the album. That’s it for now.”

Formed in the Summer of 2012, GHOST SHIP OCTAVIUS features guitarist Matt Wicklund (ex-GOD FORBID, ex-HIMSA), drummer Van Williams (ex-NEVERMORE, ASHES OF ARES), and vocalist Adon Fanion. The band describe their sound as “melodic progressive heavy metal.”

Amott left ARCH ENEMY in 2012 and was replaced by ARSIS guitarist Nick Cordle.
