Former ANNIHILATOR bassist Russell Bergquist has joined the German thrash metallers DUSKMACHINE. Bergquist replaces the group's previous bassist, Peter Habura, who "has decided he cannot continue to playing with us due to his increasing workload at his current job," the band write in a statement. "So he's decided to leave the band. We respect his decision and wish him all the best and much success in his career."

DUSKMACHINE's current lineup includes PRIMAL FEAR/ex-ANNIHILATOR drummer Randy Black. Russell and Randy played together and toured the world for years as the renowned rhythm section for the Canadian metal group ANNIHILATOR.

DUSKMACHINE's debut album, "The Final Fall", will be released through Twilight in Germany on November 14.
