Wednesday, December 12, 2012 10:44 AM PT / 7,552 views

As recent rumors have suggested, All Shall Perish guitarist and co-founder Ben Orum has exited the band. Orum has issued the following:
"I have given over 10 years of my blood, sweat, and tears to pursuing my dream which you all have helped fulfill. Being in All Shall Perish has been the best experience in my life, outside of being a father. While I am deeply saddened by my decision to leave the band it is necessary at this point in my life. As you know I have a family and obligation to provide for them and be here. Unfortunately, I could not fulfill my duty as a touring musician any longer. "While I am done with touring, I will never stop writing music. I am joining the extreme metal band Oblivion as a bassist and contributing songwriter. Oblivion's debut album will be released on January 1st, 2013. We are beyond excited to unleash it onto the metal world. I've always been into death metal and extreme music, this is my return to TRUE Death Metal. "I would like to thank all of the fans for the love and support over the last 10 years. I would also like to give a big THANK YOU to Gerardo and Nuclear Blast Records for always believing in my music. "Stay in touch, you know where to find me!"
All Shall Perish has enlisted Rob Maramonte of Fallujah to fill in for their upcoming tour with In Flames.

"Damn I'm bummed." Said me from 2005

anonymous 12/12/2012 11:10:46 AM

I dont think it is a secret that asp are more of a deathcore band than a death metal band

anonymous 12/12/2012 11:15:10 AM

all of oblivion's bass guitar is computer programmed...way to go on making up some phoney story, ben/oblivion.

Mitt__Romney 12/12/2012 11:39:37 AM

Hot Topic applications are stoked.

ineedsalt 12/12/2012 11:48:28 AM

why didnt he thank me "for always believe in my music" ?

anonymous 12/12/2012 12:33:45 PM

anonymous 12/12/2012 1:00:56 PM

People who say smoke weed everyday lol its smoke Marijuana everyday witch noone has ever done go kill yourself and all the illiterate douches who comment on my commment. Good for Ben! Best of luck.

anonymous 12/12/2012 1:22:28 PM

Wasn't he the last original member of this band?

anonymous 12/12/2012 1:44:09 PM

Why did he have to make the 'TRUE death metal' comment, what a douche, it's like he thinks we were judging him for being in a deathcore band. Musicians who care about their imagined credibility are dumb

anonymous 12/12/2012 2:00:47 PM

Ian Webb is stoked.

anonymous 12/12/2012 2:01:02 PM

dunno man, after hearing oblivion they sound way more classic 90s deathmetal to me ... I get wut he is sayin

anonymous 12/12/2012 2:18:46 PM

anonymous 12/12/2012 2:20:23 PM

^^ elitist jerk. This band actually used to be pretty good. Maybe it will be good again without him. Addition through subtraction. Good riddance gay.

SuckMeBeautiful 12/12/2012 3:06:22 PM

Get back to playing TRUE death metal? Didn't you write all the music for this band? what a joke

sandpaperseatbelts 12/12/2012 3:17:02 PM

Addition through subtraction. Yer parents must be stoked.

maclynb 12/12/2012 3:27:26 PM

hot topic applications are stoked. well first of all he already runs a really successful merch/screen printing company and has a wife and kids 2nd of all. yeah

dog_boner 12/12/2012 3:30:34 PM

anonymous 12/12/2012 5:08:18 PM

anonymous 3 hours ago Wasn't he the last original member of this band? Pretty sure the bassist, Mike Tiner is an original member.

slut 12/12/2012 6:07:11 PM

anonymous 12/12/2012 6:18:32 PM

fck the miami heat

anonymous 12/12/2012 9:12:29 PM

He's the gay responsible for that song with the cowbell that all of my deathcore dumbass friends wouldn't stop listening to. Good riddance.

anonymous 12/12/2012 10:29:11 PM

who is the gay with the tuba?

anonymous 12/12/2012 11:44:55 PM

"mike tiner is a gay" - mike tiner

anonymous 12/12/2012 11:47:04 PM

gay gay gay

anonymous 12/13/2012 12:50:01 AM

mike tiner is a gay" - mike tiner Be careful Mike Tiner. Mike Tiner may hunt you down if he hears that you called him a gay. And he's not the kinda guy you wanna fck with well unless you like that kind of thing, which you might being a gay and all.

BenOrum 12/13/2012 2:19:37 AM

Totally didn't mean it like that! Probably should of used the word TRADITIONAL instead, no disrespect to my brothers in ASP. Carry on.

anonymous 12/13/2012 2:54:25 AM

^^^don't know if I believe that this is him or not. I hope it is because that did come off pretty rude at first. "Traditional" would have been a MUCH better word.

anonymous 12/13/2012 3:12:15 AM

yes that's the real Ben ^

anonymous 12/13/2012 5:18:09 AM

Yea, that's the real Ben. Anyways, y'all are gays who love to misinterpret shit just so you can have an excuse to talk shit. Get a fcking life.

anonymous 12/13/2012 5:51:18 AM

Uhoh the real ben orum made a comment...everyone scatter. Funny how you guys trash him until you notice him following the thread. He's easily one of the most down to earth band guys I've ever met.

anonymous 12/13/2012 8:20:29 AM

TRUE deathmetal? Ben I cant believe this statement came from you. How the fck could you consider Oblivion TRUE deathmetal? Deicide, Suffocation.. do I need to continue. Only a fcking huge tool like yourself would make that comparison. You are a huge piece of shit that cant even give a fan a few minutes of your time.

anonymous 12/13/2012 8:26:38 AM

Nick Vasallo... has there ever been anyone more into themselves than this fckin douchebag? Any and every chance to rub into peoples faces that he composes music, is a guitarist, a bassist, a wanna be vocalist, a pocket pssy, and whatever else he thinks he is.Not to mention he thinks hes sexy or something. Those vocal videos.... LMFAO, little asian man thinks hes a real big strong vocalist? L O L hes the reason Ben must have said return to TRUE metal... ya right!

anonymous 12/13/2012 8:33:14 AM

"I've always been into death metal and extreme music, this is my return to TRUE Death Metal." Bens whole life is a contradiction.

anonymous 12/13/2012 8:36:05 AM

"Stay in touch, you know where to find me!" Who in the fck does this guy think he is? WHAT A fckIN TOOL!

anonymous 12/13/2012 8:37:05 AM

He meant "traditional" instead of "true" guys, get the fck over it...

anonymous 12/13/2012 8:53:05 AM

"Rob from Fallujah is THE MAN!" - anonymous statement was made by Rob from Fallujah.

anonymous 12/13/2012 8:56:14 AM

wow all you fckin jerks who are talkin shit on someone you dont know, fck YOU

anonymous 12/13/2012 9:05:35 AM

"traditional" you gotta be kidding me in no way is oblivion's sound "traditional" it would have been just as bad or worse saying that, who the fck are these guys again?

anonymous 12/13/2012 9:09:22 AM

HATE MALICE REVENGE is the only ASP album anyone should give a fck about!

Drifter 12/13/2012 10:13:35 AM

Just wanted to weight in here and say that I don't know shit about any of y'all, or the bands in question, but I have some really important opinions and witty comments to add here: 8========D~~~~~

Drifter 12/13/2012 10:14:26 AM

weigh, dammit, weigh...

anonymous 12/13/2012 11:11:07 AM

Nick Vasalo didn't even play bass on the album. it was all computer programmed by their recording dude.

anonymous 12/13/2012 5:03:46 PM

traffic in my butt!!!

anonymous 12/13/2012 5:11:27 PM

"mike tiner is still a gay" - mike tiner again

anonymous 12/13/2012 9:29:19 PM

Ben is one of the sweetest, most genuine guys in the metal scene and even the whole world. He loves his kids and his ASP family. I have never seen him blow off a fan at a show. I was waiting on my boyfriend in Carnifex to finish loading up.the trailer after a show and Ben kept me company and even shared some Oreos with me.

anonymous 12/13/2012 10:24:10 PM

I hung with Ben and tiner just after the release of this is where it ends at a small ass venue in West Virginia. cool as fck and nice ass dudes. asp will be just fine without him. They are sticking up for him because his biggest commitment is to his family. Got a problem? Suicide. You are most likely a nobody with zero room to talk about a guy who not only helped found a successful metal band but also a printing company whilst juggling a family life. fck you. - Josh Repik

anonymous 12/13/2012 10:52:41 PM

anonymous 12/14/2012 1:34:10 PM

Mike tiner really is a major gay. One original member left? HANG IT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The kings of 2nd of 5 after 10 years. We are second of 5
