GORTHAUR'S WRATH: New Session Drummer Announced

March 26, 2012

Due to scheduling conflicts, German extreme metal drummer Norman Lonhard (TRIPTYKON, PIGEON TOE) will be unable to join Croatian black metal/extreme metal band GORTHAUR'S WRATH in the studio for the recording sessions of their upcoming sophomore album, "War For Heaven". Sitting behind the kit in the studio will now be another German drummer, Christian Bass, who has previously played with WHITE EYES, DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT, NIGHT IN GALES and HEAVEN SHALL BURN. Bass will also be involved in writing the drum parts for the CD, which will be tracked in May at Woodshed Studios in Germany by V. Santura (DARK FORTRESS, TRIPTYKON).

Bass will perform live with GORTHAUR'S WRATH at the Metalfest in Zadar, Croatia, where the band will present new songs and the new lineup on stage for the first time.

Formed in 1998, GORTHAUR'S WRATH recorded four demos before releasing its debut album, "Ritual IV", in early 2011 through the U.K. label Casket Music.

During GORTHAUR'S WRATH's first European tour, the band's leader, Morbid, joined forces with longtime spiritual brother Mara (bass guitar/synths). German guitarist and songwriter Ross Feratu came aboard in early 2011 and is now the lead guitarist and main songwriter for the upcoming album.
