Behemoth recruits ex-Job For A Cowboy drummer for tour

Saturday, July 08, 2017 10:48 AM PT


Behemoth has revealed that drummer Inferno will not be joining the band for their upcoming North America tour with Slayer and Lamb Of God. Former Job For A Cowboy drummer Jon Rice will take his place.

Behemoth has issued the following statement:

We must announce that our drummer, Inferno will not be taking part in the upcoming Slayer tour with Lamb of God:

"I am going to be a father for the second time in my life and it's going to happen in July of 2017. I therefore must apologize to all our fans for not being able to participate in the 2017 Summer, North American tour. I believe that Jon Rice, an amazing drummer, a truly experienced musician, and a good friend of ours, will flawlessly take over my drum throne for this short period and will set the stage on fire!" - Inferno

As much of a disappointment it is not to have our brother with us, we completely support Inferno in this amazing chapter of his life. Rest assured, we're still bringing one HELL of a show with us and look forward to seeing our North American, Legions in full force!

Jon Rice is good, he earned the World's Fastest Drummer title at the 2006 summer NAMM show in Austin, Texas last year

My cousin (Poland native) has been to some of these guys rehearsals. Artists don't owe fans a goddamn thing when it comes to their artistic decisions. They aren't betraying anyone by changing their sound, which is EXACTLY what these guys have done. Talk about minimalist post hardcore done right. Shane is now using his screams only as punctuation and combined with the electronic influence, it gives the new tracks a very dreamy, ethereal feeling. Trust.

"Jon Rice is good, he earned the World's Fastest Drummer title at the 2006 summer NAMM show in Austin, Texas last year"

Is this 2007?
