Personal information

Born on: 18.09.1987


Septimiu Hărşan (aka Septimus) is a highly acclaimed Romanian drummer currently affiliated to the bands Pestilence (Netherlands), Disavowed (Netherlands), Necrovile (Romania) as well as other very stylistically diverse bands and projects ranging from electronic music to progressive rock and jazz/funk/fusion (Nader Sadek, The Thirteenth Sun, Aria Urbana). In 2019 he became a session drummer for the project Nader Sadek, along with drummers like Derek Roddy, Flo Mounier and Hannes Grossmann.

Born on the 18th of September 1987, Septimiu is a classically trained percussionist and began studying drums and musical theory/harmony from the age of 12. Since then, he played a variety of musical acts, gaining experience in very diverse musical climates, playing various musical styles and developing different approaches on the instrument. Although a metal music fan for most of his life, Septimiu comes from a jazz/fusion/progresive background in terms of drumming. However, he is also well known for his ability to hit 300 bpm tempo ranges with his double bass, all in single strokes and also play single-footed blast beats at those speeds. He currently has an extremely busy schedule with Pestilence, including extensive touring and single show appearances in Europe, the US, South America, Asia and a constant presence at most of the big metal summer festivals. He has also toured Europe several times with Disavowed and Necrovile and is also a local and international session drummer for various musical acts.

Septimiu lives in Transylvania, Romania, in the city of Braşov and is an endorser for Zildjian cymbals, Vater drumsticks, Axis pedals and FootBlaster triggers.
