Despised Icon replaces guitarist

Despised Icon has apparently found a replacement for departed guitar player Al Glassman, who recently joined Job For A Cowboy. Taking Glassman's place is guitarist Benoit Landreville, who in turn has amicably parted ways with The Plasmarifle.

Benoit Landreville sounds like a made up name.

He will leave JFAC in 2 months.

fck The Plasmarifle's good though. Why can't they go back to Boston and find another guitarist like they found AL??

endless line of bands losing guitarists and gaining other band's guitarists

bands are so incestuous

upsidedown_cross 1/6/2009 5:51:17 PM

Hm. I can't say if this is good or not.

(the)PLASMARIFLE* . . .

mistergrimes 1/6/2009 7:21:15 PM

Damn. That's quite an interesting switch-up. However, I do wish AG didn't leave DI. They're on a steady road of improvement.

lazarus 1/6/2009 9:26:07 PM

Hes prolly going to take over the writing for JFACs new stuff so it wont be total shit.

weRmoarmetalNow0 1/6/2009 10:21:36 PM

EmmureGroupie 1/7/2009 2:01:33 AM

WeRMoarMetalNow0 is right. Just like See You Next Tuesday.

ABC44 1/7/2009 11:06:05 AM

I hope he is as good as the other guitarist, they were great live with him.

afkingtragedy 1/7/2009 5:01:15 PM

jgay is a decent metal band. what's up with all the hating? obviously Al Glassman knows better than you gays

thrasherjohn 1/7/2009 8:21:18 PM

bloodhammer 1/8/2009 8:29:38 PM

bloodhammer 1/8/2009 8:29:42 PM

DI is amazing just hope there sound doesn't change to much

MrRufflove 1/10/2009 3:16:08 PM

I can guarantee all of you were sucking JFAC's dck 1 or 2 years ago. But now because they've gained a lot of fans and notoriety you wanna dog them. Grow up gays. DI and JFAC are awesome bands. I hope you guys all flip your parents van.
