This statement is made by myself, without any talk about that with neither B.Iron, because things between us have to be solved before talking about that, nor ΚΦ, because he's not concerned by what would be discussed.

The last modifications are volontary unclear as things are not all ready to anounce what changed, but all that is still in this statement is true, so do not expect any reunion of the band, up to now, things quite goes on the opposite path.

The reason why we didn't restarted rehearsing

There is a problem that only concern B.Iron, myself and a few relatives.

The consequence of this problem

We are, for now, unable to work together neither for the demonstration nor for Optimistic decay. Of course, we're able to write some stuffs each one on our own sides, but that's all and that's far to be enough. A band is a group of persons working together, it's synnoetic; a group or a project with few members is not the melting of two soli projects.

How long will it last?

The situation as described here lasted until december 2019, things then changed on my side only but not the way that was expected when this statement was written (that is why it has been quite shortened). What changed will be explained when all will be ready for that.

November 23rd 2012 addendum

A few days ago, I realized that the gladius is Shaül (שָׁאוּל‎) of Tarsus' symbol and it's sense is exactly the same metaphor then the sword metaphor in the name “Black Swords”. I really don't want this name to be interpreted as we would be some kind of black or inverted (or I don't know what) שָׁאוּל‎ of Tarsus, so, I've now decided not to use this name anymore for this band.
