After previously announcing the recruitment of a new drummer, Zushakon has now issued the following update about more lineup additions:
"Zushakon welcomes the return of co founder Armaros in it's mighty ranks & also joining Zushakon are local underground stalwarts - Tremor (from Sihir, formerly from Cardiac Necropsy & Impiety), the Legendary Mike Priest (from Absence of the Sacred & Blood Division, former axeman for Impiety) & Belial Hatehammer."
The band's current lineup is as follows:
Belial Hatehammer: Drums
Mike Priest: Backing Vocals/Bass
Zushakon has checked in with the following announcement about recruiting a new drummer:
"Zushakon bids a mighty farewell to it's co founder, versatile multi instrumentalist genius - Armaros aka DSV (David Swales). It's been both a pleasure & honor working with Armaros & like the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. I first met Armaros at Tomegatherion, a store owned by Shyaithan Impiety at that time & me with a share in it.
"That was way back in early 2006 while he was still a 16 year old kid & a regular customer of our store. I saw in him a potential of a genius, a greatness. Later he would go on to harness that potential to create excellent music with Grigori, Orthanc, Zushakon & countless others. Zushakon salutes Armaros with much gratitude & respect for all that he has done for the band for the past 5 years.
"While Armaros exits, Zushakon welcomes a new addition to it's ranks. Commandant Belial Hatehammer now joins the Zushakon kult in it's artillery attack. However, we are still actively looking for a new guitarist & bassist to complete the plans for future blitzkrieg. All friends, supporters, well wishers & enemies of the Zushakon horde will be kept updated in the coming months."
