Satyrasis Announces New Drummer Dimitri Mitropoulos

Michigan metallers Satyrasis have issued the following update about recruiting a drummer and recording a new album:

"Dearest Closet Sophie B. Hawkins Fans, we have some news regarding our recently vacated percussion position. Surprisingly good news, too! We'd like you to meet our new drummer. (not representative of actual likeness) Unfortunately, I'm pulling your leg.......obviously we don't really have a two-headed Muppet drumming for us. (which is a shame, because if we did, we get a record deal in a second. Not to mention the amount of cock smashing awesome it would be)

"I digress. The real reason for the blog is a two fold introduction and re-re-re-reintroduction of our new drumming tandem. Firstly, we'd like to welcome Dimitri Mitropoulos back into the band with great humility knowing full well that he should've never went anywhere in the first place. Dimitri's exploits at 8 1/2 & Dequindre are well documented in Satyralore, but if you need convincing....check out his wiki. Dimitri will be the guy you hear on next Satyrasis record and any subsequent recordings that follow. We're just glad to have him back.

"The one hiccup, is one we've been battling for the last year and half....the fact that Mr. Mitropoulos resides in Amherst, Massachusetts. And it was one we we're quite willing to accept after our recent debacle with the Hateswitch. That brings me to the next head of the monster. Mike Parks, who cut his teeth around the state with Alan in Cursed Eternity, has very awesomely offered his services for live exploits, which needless to say, we're ecstatic about. Mike is a walking ball of talent, and we're extremely honored to be working with him.

"So that brings us into the plans phase of the news which I'm sure maybe 1 person is wondering about. Since the last entry in the Satyrablog was obscenely vague, I will attempt to make amends with a more succinct outline of the ins, outs & what-have-yous. We've been through a lot of dumb shit in the last year. Worked a whole lot for not much, and watched a lot of our dreams and illusions disintegrate, evaporate or just plain explode when we're sitting at home watching Die Hard on Thanksgiving weekend.

"Shockingly, I think we're much better for it. We've scraped all the mud and insect carcasses off the windshield and despite the giant crack running down the center.....we're viewing things clearly. We also aren't in denial about the crack....which is a welcome change. Our plans, also shockingly, haven't changed that much. Our first priority is getting our next record out. We've begun the demo process with Dimitri and it's headed in the right direction. We have 5 songs written and will most likely end up with between 8 and 10 when all is said and done. We're really excited about the material. Unfortunately, part of our realignment has been the mutual agreement to eschew all timetables like they were A.I.D.S. So I wouldn't start expecting anything for at least a year........and if we still don't have anything...just wait longer.

"After the album's out, we'll hopefully be in the shape to tackle another tour. If we can get them to coincide...even better. We will be playing live with Mike as the opportunities arise....Our first show back will be opening for Misery Index @ Ye Olde Mac's Bar with Dagon. If grind is not your cup of tea, we will also be making our yearly appearance at the 4th Annual Ogrefest w/ Deadsea, Stonecutters, Production Grey and a slew of others All and all, we're just happy to still be a band....everything from here on out is gravy. Thanks for your continued support of our ribald revelries."
