Eli leaving Sacred Warrior!

Post by bjorn agin on Thu Jun 02, 2016 7:40 am

Whoa!

SACRED WARRIOR NEWS
From Eli:
"Hello friends, families, and fans of Sacred Warrior. Today, it is with a very heavy heart that I must let you all know that after a lot of thought and prayer, I have decided to step down as the band’s lead vocalist.
It has become increasingly difficult for me to find the necessary time and availability that the band needs and deserves to keep moving forward.
I want to thank all of the fans that gave me their support and acceptance as the bands new vocalist when I joined four years ago. I had some very big shoes to fill then and also, being a fan of the band, I knew it would be tough for some fans to accept a new voice. The welcome and reception I received was overwhelmingly positive and I really appreciate every kind word ever spoken or printed about me.
Steve, Bruce, Tony, Joe, Tom, and Jr. I want you to know that I will forever treasure these past four years, especially the year and experiences we all shared during the recording process of “Waiting In Darkness”. Those were some seriously prayer filled times and there were miraculous victories with the health of Bruce, Tony, and Joe. God’s spirit is all over that album, and I feel so privileged to have been a part of it.
Although this is a sad time for me, I am really looking forward to all that God has in store for Sacred Warrior in the very near future. The new material is epic and the fans (including me) are going to absolutely love it.
Thank you, I love you, may God bless you all,
Eli"
We know the main question that you all probably have, and the answer is NO, Sacred Warrior is NOT breaking up, we have tons of new music mostly finished (sans vocals), and we are VERY excited about the upcoming new record! Other than that, we are relying on God's good timing to see what is next, and when things will fall into place.
We also ask that you take Eli's words at face value... we love him, and there is no bad blood here... nothing "happened". We wish him all the best, and pray God's massive blessings on everything he pursues... visit the FB page for his vocal training business and give it a Like to stay connected with him! (https://www.facebook.com/EliPrinsensHVT/)
Join us in thanking Eli for his epic contribution to Waiting In Darkness, and in wishing him well for the future... thanks Warriors, and God Bless!

I liked Eli in Sacred Warrior. This is sad news for me. Although,  the thought of a new Sacrificed album is pretty cool.

See what you've done, Juice? You've started a rumor!   Razz

Sounds like Eli is busy with his vocal academy. I didn't read anything about a new Sacrificed album.

Umm... I hear it was already recorded but is just sitting in some studio pc hard drive. You need a super illegal downloading program like Kazaa, Limewire and Napster to get it though!

If they get another vocalist they should change the name of the band with a note stating formally known as Sacred Warrior. For me sacred warrior without Rey is not the same. Yes Eli can sing. This album was his and a name change should of went along with it. Yea I know some will agree and others will not, just my thoughts. Never liked a band that kept changing vocals. I associate a sound with a name.

Since the music is more modern and aggressive, they should get someone with more of that style of voice.

How about Luke Easter?  lol!







(For the record, I like Luke.  I just wanted to see a few fanboys get their tailfeathers ruffled.  LOL)

I don't know if it will. As of the 3rd, Jay or myself haven't been contacted by Eli. I last spoke with him a few months back and he was CRAZY busy. We spoke about another Sacrificed CD and that didn't look like it was going to happen, at least in the near future. He did mention a possible solo album though. So I hope he does something, as he is an incredible talent.
