Warbringer announces new drummer

Official press release: Despite practicing and writing together the last two months, Warbringer today make it publically official that Carlos Cruz (Hexen) is their new drummer. The delay in announcement was out of respect to their old drummer and Carlos' former bandmates and there was no question about Carlos' playing, songwriting or personality as the band ironically offered Carlos the spot in 2008. "After years of putting forth nothing but blood, sweat, and tears into my tireless ambitions for playing music, I have finally found an outlet where no more time is wasted. It was flattering to have been approached by Warbringer the first time they made a personnel change in 2008, but this time around it couldn't have felt more like perfect timing," states Carlos. "They're a collective group of humble, open-minded, down-to-earth guys who share the same fanaticism for music as I do and are the tightest musicians I have ever played with. I've never felt so welcomed and inspired to move forward. Even past members of the band have congratulated me and it feels very much like family, not just another band. From some recent serious downfalls in my personal life came this beautiful opportunity and I couldn't be happier. We'll be seeing all YOU Warbringers out on the road soon!" Fans can see Carlos playing with the guys at his live debut in Mexico City on March 5th at the Eyescream Festival alongside Asesino, Anvil, Toxic Holocaust and Abigail Williams. Warbringer plan to record their third album in April with more live shows in May and June.

Who like irony, besides Mexico?

"... as the band ironically offered Carlos the spot in 2008." Actually, that's not ironic. I don't think you know what irony is. You mean "coincidentally".
