A Dozen Furies have officially broken up. The band's claim to fame came as part of their guitarist's stint on the 2004 "Battle for Ozzfest" reality show and the band's stint Ozzfest 2005's side stage in a non-rotating side stage spot, reports SMNNews.com. Here is a message from the band's official site, written by the band's drummer Mike: "There really is no point in drawing this out longer than it needs to be, so I'll try and be quick and to the point. After two amazing short years, A Dozen Furies has called it a day. We could go on and on about all of the reasons why, but when it comes down to it, it's because we've grown apart. I guess a lot of the 'wrong' things fell into place at the 'right' time. I'm sure some might think we were a flash in the pan and now that our 15 seconds is over, we are quitting. Well, most of us have been doing this for close to 10 years and it's just time for some of us to move on. "With that said, we would like to express our more sincere thanks to everyone who was with us at any point along the way. All of the fans we've made, friends we've met, bands we toured with, and industry people we've befriended amongst our travels, we'd like to say THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. All of you have helped us achieve in just 2 years something that most bands never get to experience in their entire careers. This will be something that none of us will ever forget, and we hope most of you who did run across our path won't forget as well. "Who knows what will happen with us after the split. Some of us will continue pursuing music, some will move on to other things, and keith works at a gay bar. We all have myspace pages linked from www.myspace.com/adozenfuries so you can keep up with us if you do so desire. "To end it off, we are holding a farewell show at The Ridglea Metal & Hardcore Fest on Saturday, May 6th at The Ridglea Theatre in Ft. Worth, Texas. There are 3,000 bands playing, only the best of the best of course, so this will be a show you shant miss. We will be selling our merch(shirts, CD's, old EP's *Rip the Stars Down*, Hoodies, everything) Dirt Cheap... and I do mean Dirt Cheap, so don't miss out 'cause this is your last chance. Well, our merch store still has stuff, including the Rip the Stars Down EP, so you can still place orders. "Thanks for the good times! I miss it all already. <3 ADF"

He was making a point that it was rigged and he was right. You wanna talk being a tool, go listen to some ****ing original music; In Flames sucks ass and sounds like every other goddamn band on Ozzfest this year, which, in fact, will suck just as much as last year. The only difference between In Flam es and those faggots is that In Flames is a two word band name, while the rest of those jerkoffs have three words in their names. It doesn't matter what name they go by, they all sound the same and they all ****ing suck.
    true that my friend all the way!

    The whole battle for ozzefest thing was crap, cynder should have won, they were ten times the band mantis and a dozen furies were, they had talent. mantis was better than a dozen furies though. and why havnt cynder come out whith a cd, mantis and a dozen furies have and cynder was the runner up. oh and b-raden21 I will go listin to my slayer cd's a matter of fact im listining to angel of death right now. stupid newer metal fan.
    HavokStrife
    Hah, big surprise. I didn't even like ADF when they were on the show, I laughed my ass off when Randy from Lamb of God did all that shit to him on stage. Manntis was my pic from when they did the acoustic stuff with Rob Halford, then they got on stage and I liked them even more. Ozzfest funfact: I was at the Ozzfest where the chick bassist that didn't even know how to play bass played a song with Bleeding Through. Yeah, that's what my ears were doing.

    jsav you are a ****in idiot. marc was never in ill nino. pull your head out of your ass before you talk on here you dumbshit.
    b_raden21
    manntis and adf are both awesome bands and **** all you guys. go listen to your slayer cd's and jack off.
    i_am_metalhead
    great band - a lot of talent there. its sad that they have broken up. but you know they will all go on to do other stuff so while the band is dead, the member's music careers arent.

    in flames isnt on ozzfest this year they are on sounds of the underground, and they dont sound that similar to many bands on ozzfest.

    jsav is a ****ing douche in flames sounds really different from all the other ozzfest bands, especially for this years lineup. in flames ****in owns.

    Everyone is blowing this battle for ozzfest thing way out of control. Who gives a F(*k! Go post on the Ozzfest forum. Sounds to me most of you are upset your band didn't make it on that MTV show. Deny their music all you want(i think it was really good), but don't deny their stage presence. Tons of bands who are semi-talented do well b/c they know how to put that energy out there. Listen i don't care if a band only can play 5 chords if they make me feel it then it's worth my time.That's what Adf did for me and it's too bad they ended so soon.

    hate to tell you... but slayer is alot better than ADF could ever hope to be... and now they are out of the running to be better than slayer

    ADF RULES. YOU'LL BE MISSED everyone else is so concerned on other things other than the music and as far as im concerned your all tools. its about the music not about whether or not a band decides to break up. its theyre band they can do what they want. PEOPLE HAVE FORGOTTEN WHATS ITS ALL ABOUT. stupid scene faggots. get a life
    jtl900
    bottom line; always sad to hear a band is breaking up. even if you don't like them. (and i don't like adf)
    i_am_metalhead
    haha fyi: any band that plays on ozzfest has more talent than any one of the stupid narrow minded **** offs on this site. All you UG people can think about is getting off to slayer and metallica. those bands are dead now - sure they were good back in the day but the whole music scene has moved on to better things and they are just has beens. all you noobs need to **** off.
    i_am_metalhead
    An update for anyone that may care - ADF is NOT playing at the RMF! They will NOT be playing any more shows! You can confirm this info by visiting their myspace site at www.myspace.com/adozenfuries - Metal Will
    dertjoe
    alot of the bands were nu metal, but manntis and adf were awesome and marcs a really good guitarist, one of the only to be signed go through a breakup and get another band signed, that takes talent
    Embryodead
    he was in a famous band, it was UNLOCO not Ill Nino, but unloco had been a mainstream band under ozzy's label..

    This is just another piece of evidence to prove the point that finding artists from reality tv, is a terrible idea, all the pop idols and X factor winners amounted to nothing and now this. Its much better to work for it and stay popular for a long time, than be some one hit wonder from a reality tv show.

    However, it's still better to be a one-hit wonder than a no-hit nobody. So they've had their two years of fame, got "popular", and they put their music out. Good for them. If they want to break up now, it's their decision. I don't think they're breaking too many hearts anyway... it's not such a big deal. Bye bye whoever you were.

    That was not a rant at dozen furies, i dont bame them for taking a chance, i thought they were quite good, it was a rant on people like Simon Cowell, who are manufacturing music, which stops good bands being noticed, unless they lose the guitars, start singing crappy pop and go on pop idol/american idol, i think its a shame.

    a dozen furies winning battle for ozzfest was a scam. look at marc, the guitarist that was representing ADF on the show, look at what band we was in before- ILL NINO, who played ozzfest either 2002 or 2003, not sure but im sure u can find it sumwhere. Thats how he won, he had connections and was already on ozzfest a couple years before.

    i hated a dozen furies. but i think it was rather akward how he said "Who knows what will happen with us after the split. Some of us will continue pursuing music, some will move on to other things, and keith works at a gay bar. We all have myspace pages linked from www.myspace.com/adozenfuries so you can keep up with us if you do so desire" he just had to tell their myspace pages and said one of the dudes was working at a gay bar.

    I agree with 4589, manntis or curse your name(cynder)would've been more gracious victors. Damn, why hasn't there been another season, wasn't it a hit?

    jsav you are retarded.... adf was a goodband and MARC was never from ill nino... the marc from ill nino you are talking about is now in soulfly... the marc from ADF was never in another famous band... get it straight before you bash a band...
    Primefire1854
    Say what you want about this band i will say in their defense that when they played live it was out of control and they put on a excellent show. Which is what it's really all about!
    rustin peace18
    They were a good live band. actual music good, i dont think so, but I wish them the best. i dont think they were a sellout to fame like some have said or just one hit wonders becuase they had no hits and they worked hard to get where they did. mad respect

    They were a generic metal band. They may have been talented, but they sure couldn't figure out how to apply it. Try again, Chico.

    Dude this sucks, i actually like this band, the guitarist was actually pretty good. I didn't even get to see them live! And for the record, i didn't even care if the guitarist was once apart Unloco, but I did like the other two bands, Manntis and CYN(Formly known as Cynder.) Alls I know is that this sucks.

    Yeah uh...guys...first of all Marc is from Unloco...and second of all them winning Battle for Ozzfest was not a scam. I mean I wanted Manntis to win but between ADF and CYN, ADF had like a better stage prescence and sound and everything...dont get me wrong Ryan had a good voice but it didnt fit his music as much...A Concept from Fire was a great CD...it sucks to see them end
