Nobody will ever accuse metal band Witchrot of failing to live up to their hard rocking image. A recent Facebook post on the band's fan page by band member Peter is going viral for its hardcore bluntness.
Peter wrote of Witchrot's unfortunate breakup:
"Due to the unfortunate reality of our guitarist f—ing my girlfriend of almost 7 years WITCHROT will be taking an extended hiatus. I however will continue the band in another space and time, being ripe with hate the music is slowly flowing and without a doubt will become the most devastating, torturous music I have ever created."
Peter said to his fans, "Thanks for the support, stay heavy," before adding one last bit of news:
"Also our drummer died…"
I guess these things happen?

It's worth nothing that, though the band's Facebook page has been around since the start of the month, their Twitter and Instagram accounts were created only last Tuesday, leading some to believe this is all an ingenious publicity stunt for Witchrot. It's also unclear whether or not the band's drummer is actually alive.
My first instinct was "Parody." But ... the band Witchrot has a Wikipedia entry. And albums uploaded to YouTube. https://t.co/iRhGrv3wa2— William Grosso (@William Grosso)1543280899.0

In some people's opinion, Witchrot's music doesn't quite live up to the post itself.
