Another one bites the dust. Well, in a manner of speaking that is….
According to the newsworthy Metal media providers over at Bravewords.com, it seems that the Swedish Sleaze Rockers Vains Of Jenna have decided to call it a career and are breaking up after seven years of performing together. I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy the band a couple of times since over the recent years of PiercingMetal adventuring and have to say that this is a little bit of a bummer because they clearly delivered some good stuff and were very energetic in concert. I consider myself lucky being able to enjoy any band in concert and kind of sad when they call it quits since I tend to think that more people would have enjoyed what they were all about if they only had the same opportunity to catch them.

The band states that this was an amicable split and no one holds anyone to blame about the decision. On each of the occasions that I saw them they had a different singer with the first being Lizzy DeVine and the second Jesse Forte. Lizzy left not long after the gig that I caught over at Santo’s Party House and it was reported recently how Jesse joined up with George Lynch’s band The Lynch Mob. Obviously the latest change was instrumental in the larger group decision and with that being the case the song had ended. At least for now. I opted to categorize this under “Heavy Metal Happenings” more than “Heavy Metal Holy Sh*t” or “When The Music Died” because I didn’t feel that either applied at the end of the day. This was a fun band that I enjoyed and I wish all of the members well in their next adventure. I am sure that we have not heard the last from any of them, and we all know just how permanent band breakups are don’t we?
