CORONER Announces New Drummer

Saturday, 24th May 2014

Reunited Swiss technical thrash metal masters CORONER have announced the addition of drummer Diego Rapacchietti to the group’s ranks. The band says in a statement: “Diego is an accomplished and innovative drummer. He has played in bands PAGANINI, VENTURIA, 69 CHAMBERS, and many more. Diego also has extensive experience as a studio drummer for various projects.”

Rapacchietti will make his live debut with CORONER on May 29 at Salzhaus in Winterthur, Switzerland. He will then join his new bandmates on their first Australian tour ever, set to kick off on June 5 in Melbourne.

Drummer Marky Edelmann (a.k.a. Marquis Marky) left CORONER in February, explaining in a statement that “it was clear from the start that I didn’t want to record another album. I love the sound of CORONER, but for me, it’s the moment to explore new sounds without the weight of the past on my shoulders.”
