Necrophagist adds new drummer

Necrophagist has announced the addition of Romain Goulon (Disavowed) as their "official new drummer." The announcement spells the end of drummer Marco Minnemann's stint with the group. Necrophagist comments: "[We want] to thank 'human metronome' Marco Minnemann for playing drums on last year's Summer Slaughter tour. It was an honor and a lot of fun playing with one of the world's greatest drummers." Interestingly, Minnemann will however participate in a new band he has formed with Necrophagist guitarist/vocalist Muhammed Suicmez. Suicmez elaborates: "I am very excited about this, because jamming with Marco inspires me to come up with great ideas and I have a lot of respect for Marco as a composer. So forging a whole new style by mixing mine and his is something I can't wait to do, because not only is Marco one of the best drummers in the world, he is a great guitarist also."
