The Great Old Ones - Drummer Quits The Band

After 12 years, The Great Old Ones drummer Léo Isnard has decided to quit the band. Additionally, the French black metallers already introduce Julian Deana as the permanent replacement.

Statement from the band: "Cultists, it's time for us to announce that Léo Isnard decided some times ago to quit the band, for professional reasons. We totally understood his choice. TGOO take a lot of time, and some jobs can't be managed with a band.

"We really want to thanks Léo for all that he did for The Great Old Ones since the beginning, his technical drumming, his good humor on all occasions, his unwavering friendship. TGOO wouldn't be what it is without you. All our wishes Leo, we will miss you.

"In the other side, we have the pleasure to present you Julian Deana, our new drummer, who played his first show with TGOO at Hellfest From Home. This 20-year-old genius has already performed an incredible performance on this occassion, and it promises great things for the future! Welcome this new cultist, ready to pay homage to H.P. Lovecraft!

Message from Léo as follows: "It's now time to announce that TGOO and I have parted ways. Those years with the band will remain among the best I've ever had.
10 years ago, we took the vow to build something at the height of H.P. Lovecraft. And I don't want to be the one that holds that dream back as my work as a music teacher is taking more and more of my time. And I feel blessed for that.

"As a musician, I would never had dreamed of such intensity in my life. And I will never be the same again. I'm proud of what I brought to the band and I'm so thankful for what YOU ALL gave back to me!

"I will never thank you enough, and I want to address my wishes to Ben, Gart, Aurélien, Barby. Another thank you to my old mates Jeff, Xabi and Seb. I could write a hole novel of thanks, so I'd better stop right there. Music is definitely not over and I'm looking forward to seeing you on stage again! The Great Old Ones will Rise!"

That's quite an old news, I remember seeing this like a month ago ... Léo is a fantastic drummer but the new guy is doing a great job as well. We'll see in the next album how it goes !
