Behold...The Arctopus Parts Ways With Drummer

Behold...The Arctopus drummer Charlie Zeleny has issued the following update about quitting the band:

"Its been 5+ years of crazy music, amazing fans and good times but its definitely time for us to part ways. These days I've been really into developing my career as a Session Drummer live and in the studio and as a Drum Solo Artist. I'm also very excited to be working on some new projects with Jordan Rudess from Dream Theater and Terry Bozzio for the Drum Channel. I am excited to focus more on my own Online Drum Tracking business for artists all around the world which has already included Rudess, Blotted Science and Suspyre too. I wish the band the best of luck continuing on in the future without me and look forward to reconnecting with Arctopus fans on tour with other artists and bands soon, so stay tuned!"

That sucks hard. This guy is an amazing drummer and it's probably going to be pretty hard to find someone as good as he is to fill his shoes, but then again I thought the same thing about Necrophagist and Romain proved me wrong.

At least the bass player didnt leave. If that happened I'de be devastated. Seeing as it's just the drummer....I'm still devastated. lol

At least he's just quitting the band, as opposed to going the way of Vitek; too many people have been dying in the metal world lately. :/

Genghis Tron and Behold are both utterly amazing bands. It's gonna be difficult to find an adequate replacement skinsman. Hope they don't pick someone absolutely rubbish hahah
