CORONER In Australia (Video)

Friday, 27th June 2014

Swiss technical thrash legends CORONER have posted video footage from their recent tour of Australia.

CORONER last month announced the addition of drummer Diego Rapacchietti to the group’s ranks. The band said 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 made his live debut with CORONER on May 29 at Salzhaus in Winterthur, Switzerland. He then joined his new bandmates on their first Australian tour ever, which kicked off on June 5 in Melbourne.

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.”

The band’s last studio album was 1993’s Grin, which was released by Noise Records.
