Elvenking - Drummer Quits

After 12 years with the band, drummer Zender had left Elvenking. The band commented:

"We had a wonderful journey with Zender in these long 12 years. Thinking about where we started together back in the time and what we have achieved along the path it really looks incredible. We were a bunch of kids when we started together with nothing but a dream, and now we are here. We cannot feel anything but proud and we are sure Zender feels exactly the same. Being in a band like Elvenking it is not the easiest thing in the world, since you are not that big to live out of your passion, but you're big enough to have a lot of stress, busy days, lots of things to do and manage, long travels, flights, etc etc. The split has been in total friendship and with no bad blood at all. Zender came to visit the band in the rehearsal room also the other day to share some words and drinks together. All Elvenking members, crew and friends wish Zender all the best possible for his future and we're sure our roads will cross again sooner or later"

"The ones of you who have seen Elvenking live during the Tides Over Europe tour dates have already known and experienced a new strange and mysterious character on drums, named Symohn. He is sitting behind the drumkit for all next live dates so you need to check his ability behind the kit out on the next gigs! Be sure to not miss 'em!"

It's so sad when members left their band... I wish Sebastian Bash in Skid Row again...

If I was him I would want the fuck out too. Elvenking has become increasingly awful as of late. Red Silent Tides is just trash.

Everything he doesn't like is metalcore. Britney Spears, Elton John, Michael Moore, and green beans are also metalcore, in case you guys didn't know.

His drumming wasn't that special so I hope the new guy can bring something cool to this band

Well, maybe his drumming was not inspired enough in Elvenking... but he is a great drummer, just wait for his NEW band... When he plays sleaze metal he is one of the best you can listen. Pure energy and groove, and really nice drum fills. If you don't like sleaze such as Motley Crue, Crashdiet or Skid Row, you won't like his new project... Anyone who likes this kind of music will not be disappointed!!
