Drum-Cam Footage Of New MEGADETH Touring Drummer DIRK VERBEUREN From Bologna, Italy
June 7, 2016
Drum-cam footage of SOILWORK drummer Dirk Verbeuren performing the song "Poison Was The Cure" with MEGADETH live at Estragon Club in Bologna, Italy on June 3 can be seen below.
MEGADETH played its first show with Verbeuren on May 20 at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio.
Verbeuren was recruited to play drums for the band while Chris Adler is busy touring with LAMB OF GOD.
Adler played drums on MEGADETH's latest album, "Dystopia", and has taken part in most of the band's live shows in support of the CD so far. On those shows where Adler was unable to play with MEGADETH, he was temporarily replaced by Tony Laureano (ex-DIMMU BORGIR, NILE, ANGELCORPSE),the veteran extreme-metal skinsman who has worked as MEGADETH's drum tech since 2011. However, going forward, MEGADETH will utilize the services of Verbeuren, the 40-year-old Belgian-born-and-now-Los-Angeles-based drummer who has been playing with SOILWORK since 2005.
Verbeuren was recommended for the MEGADETH job by Adler, who called Dirk "probably [one of the] top three drummers in the world."
