Krokus - Announce New Drummer

Three years ago, drummer Freddy Steady left the Swiss band Krokus. The new album Dirty Dynamite was already recorded with a session drummer but the band is now complete again with the new drummer Flavio Mezzodi.

For Flavio Mezzodi, a childhood dream has come true. "At age 10 I wanted nothing more than playing in a rock band and play all over the world", he states. "And now that dream has become reality". The drummer is from Solothurn, where Krokus is from.

Bassist and producer Chris Von Rohr says it best: "The precision and groove of his drum work is exactly what our band needed. We are extremely happy that we found him."

Flavio learned his drum skills at the Dante Agostini Drum School in Paris. He also teaches at numerous schools drumming, whenever he is not touring with Krokus. He played professionally with Swiss acts Stefanie Heinzmann and the band Fox. Mezzodi grew up listening to Krokus.

Over the almost four decades time, the band's drumming job has been often vacant. Freddy Steady left the band multiple times. The other Swiss drummer, Dani Crivelli, tragically passed about three weeks ago. Marc Storace further explains: "Flavio is a great human being and musically fits perfectly into our line-up. With him on drums, we will rock with even more power."
