Youri Raymond, bassist for Canadian technical death metal outfit Cryptopsy, has announced his departure from the band via the following statement: "I am officially announcing my departure of the band Cryptopsy. At this time, we feel it's in the best interest of both the band and I to part ways. As a musician, moving from guitar to bass was a great challenge, but honestly, I never really felt comfortable in that position and my motivation in general was stagnating. I'm now moving forward and will release an album in 2012 on guitar/lead vocals with my band Unhuman and I hope Jon, Matt, Chris Flo and the new guy who will fill in in the bass spot the very best with the upcoming album and what might be the 'real' Cryptopsy coming back! Thanks again fans and friends for your endless support!"
