Apocalyptica - Part Ways With Drummer

After 20 years, drummer Mikko Sirén and Apocalyptica have decided to go separate ways. Full statement from the band can be read below.

Statement from the band as follows: "Some of you may have already seen us playing without our drummer Mikko Siren in Brasil and Mexico earlier this year...or have heard rumors to this effect. We are very sorry to have to inform you that we have amicably parted ways with Mikko after 20 years. Recording our forthcoming album was our last collective achievement. Also, we want to reassure all of you that we - Eicca, Perttu and Paavo - will continue as Apocalyptica. We wish Mikko happiness and success in everything he aims for in all his future endeavors!"

Well... This was a surprise. The drums added so much power & melody. Guess going back to a 3-piece & probably use Dave Lombardo, like in the past, or guest drummers or drum programming. Hopefully, cause I can't get back into this band without a drummer lol
