As has been rumored as of late, The Black Dahlia Murder drummer Zach Gibson and bassist David Lock are no longer with the group. Black Dahlia Murder had the following to say about the move:

"Both are gone cause they couldn't actually play our material. It was sad to have to make such a decision withDave since he's been with us for quite some time, we wish him nothing but the best in all his future endeavors."

For his part, Gibson has issued the following statement:

"Yes, the rumors are true, I am no longer the drummer for The Black Dahlia Murder. I was asked to leave the band after our last show on the BTBAM/Cephalic Carnage/Into The Moat tour 10/28/05 in Detroit, Michigan, our home...I was quitting anyways and they knew it, they just wanted to save face and beat me to the punch."

Meanwhile, Gibson has apparently rejoined his former group, Gutrot.

Update: at the request of a particular party, we've decided to remove the bulk of Gibson's statement
