Arsis replaces drummer

Monday, June 2, 2008 4:09 PM PT / 4,738 views

Arsis has parted ways with drummer Darren Cesca, who appeared on the band's latest album, and replaced him with Alex Tomlin. Here's a statement from guitarist/vocalist James Malone: "Although we had a great run over the past year and a half with drummer Darren Cesca, we have decided to stop working with him in Arsis. The reasoning behind this decision is simply differences in personalities and an overall difference in direction. Darren is an amazing musician and we harbor no ill feelings towards him. We wish him all the best. We are most excited to announce that Alex Tomlin, a long time friend of ours and an outstanding drummer, will be replacing Darren. His first shows with us will be on the 'In Thrash We Trust' tour starting this Wednesday. Come out and support Arsis and the new addition to our line-up!"

rude band

this is the drummer that should have replaced van dyne in the beginning, should be rad

Bummer. I'm sure Arsis will still slay, but I hope this dude ends up playing in another great band. He's way too good to end up in some shit second-rate mall metal band.

Good band. Hopefully this new guy helps em out.

holyfuckingshit 6/2/2008 4:48:48 PM

Stupid gays. Darren Cesca is the shit.

Arsis has parted ways with pooper Darren Cesca

Darren is a pretty insane drummer. But over-blasted on the Arsis album (but does some amazing fills, and 4 snares!).

Reform Goratory!

windsfuckyou 6/2/2008 8:19:22 PM

heard he was an awesome dude

destroyerofpoon 6/2/2008 8:20:32 PM

They probably ditched him because there going for a metal-core direction on there next album like those gays veil of maya sucks also becuase darren was a nice dude

Chigurh 6/2/2008 8:40:04 PM

best thing that could've happened- that drummer's obnoxious (although proficient) playing was out of place with Arsis

ShaolinLambKiller 6/2/2008 8:47:15 PM

that's a shame.

Tomlin is a God among men. Battlemaster rips and tears.

baobab 6/2/2008 9:39:58 PM

thetowerofrome 6/2/2008 9:42:34 PM

ronniefuckingdobbs 6/3/2008 12:30:00 AM
