Germany's VANIZE — who feature in their ranks Peter Dirkschneider, the younger brother of former ACCEPT/current U.D.O. frontman Udo Dirkschneider — have parted ways with bassist Marcus Bielenberg, drummer Pierre Fienhold and guitarist Rolf Munkes. "I don't want to deal with the reasons for that right here," Marcus wrote on the band's official web site. "At the moment we are looking for a new singer to go on with a different name but with a similar sound and we will let you know immediately if there are interesting news. I can't tell you what is going to happen to VANIZE, you should ask Peter for details."
