Survivors Zero Parts Ways With Drummer Reima Kellokoski

Finnish death metal act Survivors Zero has issued the following announcement about parting ways with their drummer:

"Some weeks ago our drummer Reima Kellokoski informed us that he was not able to continue in our band, as he felt he could not in the future give the 100% commitment needed. As 2010 will be an anniversary year for Impaled Nazarene, his allegiances of course lie with his band of 15 years. As both bands will tour actively and will not settle for compromises, both SZ and Reima felt this was the best decision and this departure is not in hostile terms in any way. We will of course miss playing and partying together, but life moves ahead. We thank Reima for the great times in the studio and on the road. You may leave the band but never the brotherhood. Best of luck in the future, brother.

"SZ continues to keep it in the family, as we did not have to look for a drummer very far. Our new skin pounder is none other than our good friend Seppo Tarvainen (Tukkanuotta, ex-Scourger), who took on the challenge and took the drum seat (and stage) by storm. After he stood in for Reima on the two last gigs of the Cobra Tour (with practically no band rehearsals and a broken finger), letting him go was not an option. Perfect. Fucking. Mayhem. Welcome, ya crazy fucker!

"This change in the line up will in no way change our touring schedule, all previously announced gigs will be done and more will be announced soon. See you down the road!"
