In an interview with Invisible Oranges, Morbid Angel vocalist and bassist Dave Vincent revealed longtime drummer Pete Sandoval left the band because he “found Jesus.” According to the interview:

Is Pete still an official member of the band? He’s still listed as one in various places online.

Pete’s no longer in Morbid Angel.

I know he publicly said some unkind things about the last record after it came out.

Well, his whole way of life has changed. He’s in a different spot, and the spot that he’s in right now, Pete Sandoval and Morbid Angel are not compatible.

How so?

Well, he has found Jesus. You can see where the incompatibility comes from.

As Metal Injection also said in their reporting, vocalist Dave Vincent has no plans on finding Christ.
