Hirax Drummer Fabricio Ravelli Quits

Drummer Fabricio Ravelli has officially left Los Angeles thrashers HIRAX. His statement on the matter is as follows:

"I joined the band around a year ago and by that time, I had just came from Brazil to U.S. I definitely had some good times playing with HIRAX but I do believe that there's a time on life that you have to make decisions about what you want for your life, [and] I chose to have some self-respect. I wish good for the band but I came here to U.S to make it in music and this is my dream and I'm moving foward with my career. It's gonna be hard for me to find myself in a situation harder than the situations that I had to go through when I first got here like, living in my car or living in in numerous different places every day just because of what I want. So I'm not here to mess around and I'm definitely not stoping now so that means that you're gonna hear from me REALLY soon. I'm just glad that now I also can get to play my drums more freely 'cause there was a lot of elements that with HIRAX [that] just didn't fit. Yeah, I do love fast double bass and fast beats but I also grew up with all kinds of metal and some really heavy-ass Brazilian percussion, among other drumming stuff. It's like that saying from the great Muhammad Ali, you know, 'He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.'

"I wanna say a big thanks for all the fans/friends that I met around the world touring or through Internet, I'm definitely seeing you guys again and also for my ex-bandmates: Glenn (also not in HIRAX anymore, if you need a killer guitarrist you should get a hold of this guy) Lance and Steve, we had some killer times together.

"Anyone out there whose serious and needs a drummer I'll be glad [to] check it out. Visit my website, www.fabricioravelli.com, for more info."

It called Karma! Katon borrowed my PA and never returned it. At 43 years old, he still doesn't know what a professional relationship is
