Conspiracy Assassin, who's currently in the midst of putting the finishing touches on a new EP, has announced plans for its CD release/farewell show. That's right: The band is planning to call it a day after its show on Saturday, November 15 at Arvada's 12 Volt Tavern, which means its newest release will also be its last. And as a going away gift, the group will also be posting the songs from previous effort, E.O.D. available for free download. Sad to see 'em go. One the area's finest metal bands, Conspiracy Assassin will undoubtedly be missed and leave a gaping hole in the scene -- and our hearts. (Aw!) That said, guess its a good thing we recently got turned on to Enemy Reign, a brutal new metal band that's every bit as badass. -- Dave Herrera
