Wan vocalist Tsjud states: "We are proud to announce that a new skin beater has been recruited. Our northern brother Draup will from now on handle the drums, and we're sure he´ll do a ruthless contribution."

In late December, Wan entered Hammer Regime Studios to record new material. More news on this as it comes. "Enjoy the Filth" was released in October on Carnal Records.
