Guitarist Izakar has announced his departure from the French metal band DAGOBA. He says in a statement, "Irreconcilable differences with one of the bandmembers have prompt my decision, but after thirteen years playing together, I wish them the best for the future. I now give priority to my private life and to the development of my projects, BLAZING WAR MACHINE and the Full Metal Studio. I thank all the fans for all the great moments on stage and for the full support they give to the band."
DAGOBA's fourth album, "Poseidon", entered the official chart in France at position No. 41. Released on August 30, 2010 via the French label XIII Bis Records, the CD was recorded at Hyperion Studio in Marseille, France with "Brew" Varea and was mixed by Dave Chang at Philia Studio in the U.K.
