CORONER Announces New Drummer

Reposted from Blabbermouth.net

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 PAGANINIVENTURIA69 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.”

Filmmakers Bruno Amstutz and Lukas Ruettimann last year released a teaser for the upcoming documentary about CORONER. Due later this year, the film will feature interviews with Tom G. Warrior and Martin Ain (CELTIC FROST), Max Cavalera (SEPULTURASOULFLY), Franz Treichler (YOUNG GODS), Chris von Rohr (KROKUS), Chris Glanzmann (ELUVEITIE), Stephan Eicher and more.

Originally part of the road crew for fellow countrymen CELTIC FROSTCORONER went on to become one of the most progressive extreme metal acts of the Eighties.

The connection between the Zurich band and CELTIC FROST was so strong, in fact, that CELTIC FROST frontman Tom G. Warrior offered to handle vocals for the emerging band’s demo. Warrior and CORONER entered Switzerland’s Magnetix studio on October 10, 1985, and nine days later they walked out with the impressive four-song 1986 release, “Death Cult”.
