Former IMMORTAL Drummer HORGH Joins HYPOCRISY!

January 12, 2004

Former IMMORTAL/current GRIMFIST drummer Horgh has officially joined HYPOCRISY. Horgh replaces longtime HYPOCRISY skinsman Lars Szöke, who reportedly left the band because of his unwillingness to tour for long periods of time.

"Lars still wants to play drums," HYPOCRISY mainman Peter Tägtgren explained to Norway's Scream magazine, "but not with the hectic schedule HYPOCRISY has had the last months, and still is going to have for most of 2004.

"I can't wait to go on tour with this new lineup!" Peter stated about the group's latest addition. "I think it will be so cool to have Horgh's blast beats in our songs!"

Horgh's decision to join HYPOCRISY has forced GRIMFIST to cancel their appearance at this year's Inferno Metal Festival, where they were scheduled to perform alongside MAYHEM, MY DYING BRIDE and DECAPITATED, among others. A replacement act has yet to be announced.

HYPOCRISY will be embarking on a U.S. tour with CANNIBAL CORPSE, EXHUMED and VILE beginning on February 12 in Houston, Texas.
