Beast In Black - Introduce New Drummer

Up and coming metallers Beast In Black, nominated for Best Power Metal Album on Metal Storm Awards 2017 with their debut album, Berserker, will kick off their European run with Italian symphonic metal legends Rhapsody, before heading to Japan and playing at several European summer festivals. The band has announced their new permanent drummer Atte Palokangas. He has been touring with them from the end of 2017 and is a worthy successor for former drummer Sami Hänninen who left the band recently.

Sami stated: "Due to new circumstances in my life, I'm not able to take part in the upcoming shows nor tours and I feel the band, especially in its early stages, requires a drummer who will be able to give his absolute hundred percent for the band. In addition to that, as some of you may know, I've had some issues with my left hand, making drumming sometimes extremely difficult and painful. It has something to do with the nerve system, resulting in my left hand going all numb and powerless - much like the tennis elbow. This would constantly make it hard for me to rehearse and eventually slow the band down."

Atte commented: "I'm honored, excited and thankful for this opportunity! I can't wait for the future adventures with the guys!"
