Former VINNIE VINCENT INVASION drummer Bobby Rock has joined the New York-based metal band CARNIVAL OF SOULS. "CARNIVAL OF SOULS needed to replace their former drummer [W.A.S.P. skinsman Stet Howland] with someone who could be a team player and contribute mentally as well as physically to be part of this high-energy metal band," Rock said in a statement.

"The music is aggressive and melodic with a big-arena sound.

"I'm really looking forward to a long working relationship with these guys. They are a great bunch of people and are very professional.

"Flying in from California to shoot three videos in a day is unheard of. This organization truly has it together. Everything went so smooth and was a great experience with this band. The chemistry is there and it shows in our performance together.

"Fortunately I met bass player Gene Hunter years ago and I'm sure there is a reason why our paths cross again.

"My energy will easily be focused on CARNIVAL OF SOULS.

"We are cutting the drum tracks for 'Ashes to Ashes', which will be out late spring/summer 2005. You can go to the CARNIVAL OF SOULSweb site to view the video 'Grey' and will soon be able to view 'We All Fall Down'. CARNIVAL of SOULS will be featured in an up coming Hit Parader magazine issue this spring announcing all future plans for 2005.

"We are surrounded by some very cool people in the industry and are looking forward to this year's agenda."
