Emmure recruits ex-BTBAM, BYD drummer

Sunday, January 8, 2012 1:45 PM PT


As you may know, Emmure has been in the studio as-of-late recording a new album. You may also know that they must have a new drummer, since they kicked out their drummer in October.

What you don't know is that their new drummer is apparently none other than Mark Castillo, the original drummer of Bury Your Dead, and one-time drummer for Between The Buried And Me (Castillo appeared on their "The Silent Circus" album).

Of course nothing has been announced yet, so don't call mom just yet.


UPDATE: Emmure has now officially announced the aforementioned news.


Jesse (guitars) states: "Mark Castillo has been a good friend for a few years now. Mark approached us as he heard through the grapevine that EMMURE needed a helping hand, so at that point I chatted with him about possibly recording our new CD and playing some shows. After jamming the set a few times we all decided that Mark was the perfect fit for us and undoubtedly should be our new drummer. He is the upmost professional and his work on the new effort in going to really help us bring everything to another level. Everyone better watch out."

Awesome drummer joins totally gay band, the world keeps turning

1/8/2012 4:50:26 PM
"what's the f*kn point of this and any other music site if it doesn't matter" - Get over it. And since you're so concerned about unimportant details, it's Crossfade, not Crossroads, you stupid fck.

anonymous

Mark Castillo is obviously looking at Emmure as a money grab (he left BYD for Crossfade for the same reason). Good drummer, hopefully he doesn't get stuck in traffic before a show, refuse to share his drug stash, or post links on Facebook without Frankie's permission lol

Castillo beat Frankie in a Pokemon battle after months of training, the only way to gain entrance to their inner circle.

Shitty music is shitty. Castillo's career went down the drain after he left Piecemeal.

there's so much hate from all of you, I'v realized through meeting bands no matter how much you dislike the music or how gay you think it is, or how cool you think you are tearing them down, that these bands work hard as fck just so guys can hate on it like gays....most of you have never toured a day in your life or played a show or have any musical knowledge whatsoever so fck off

1/9/2012 8:59:01 AM
i do love the drumming on cover your tracks and silent circus

anonymous
1/9/2012 9:52:02 AM
Pretty sure he is still the Crossfade drummer. Also speculating on his departure from BYD, BYD is basically only active in the summers as Mat Bruso is a school teacher. Lastly, it's possible he is just the studio drummer. He's friends with Emmure for the years they spent on the same record label.

Guess I'm the only one stoked about this.

1/9/2012 1:41:41 PM
Get off of anonymous, you goddamn pussies. It's the internet, you're practically anonymous anyway. And we're not haters, we just appreciate music that requires talent and musicianship.

PS: A new drummer won't make any difference to this horseshit breakdown machine.

anonymous

@Costanzig made the funniest comment on here.
Everyone else needs to quit bitching.
This dude is a great drummer, but is wasting his talent on a band like Emmure.

anonymous

Emmure. Crossfade. Bury your dead. All three have one thing in common. Holding on to a damn dream. Just give it up.

anonymous
1/9/2012 3:25:07 PM
Emmure and all their followers should do the world a favor and kill your self

anonymous
1/9/2012 4:49:49 PM
Yay a good drummer to hopefully overpower frankies shitty c-ck sucking vocals- only decent thing in the band is Jesse on the guitar.

anonymous
