Adrian Erlandsson, the former drummer for Cradle Of Filth, The Haunted and At The Gates, has been confirmed as the new permanent drummer for British goth metal group Paradise Lost. Erlandsson states:
"Paradise Lost has been one of my favourite bands since I first heard them in 1990. When my fellow BRUJERIA member Jeff Walker told me that PL were looking for a drummer I got in contact with Greg straight away. After a few chats and emails I was on my way to the audition. I had learnt 10 songs out of their last setlist, but after playing only 4 songs Nick said, 'the job is yours if you want it'. Great success!! I look forward to growing even older with the lads and rocking hard with them live!!!!"
Guitarist Greg Mackintosh adds: "Adrian has been a friend and acquaintance for some time. After calling me to see if the drumming position was still vacant, we quickly arranged for an audition right before entering the studio to record our new album. We knew immediately that he was the man for the job. Playing the songs with him felt very natural. He is the same age as us and from a similar musical background. Unfortunately it was too short notice to play on the new album but everything we do from now on will have Adrian involved.
"We look forward to rehearsing with him when we leave the studio and to doing our first show with him in Norway on April 10th (Inferno Festival)."
