Cirrha Niva Recruits New Drummer Wiebe Slim

Dutch metallers Cirrha Niva have checked in with the following update about recruiting a new drummer:

"We are more than happy to welcome Wiebe Slim (ex-Melora Rain) as our new drummer! We already did one show with Wiebe while supporting The 11th Hour, but at that time he was just doin' us a favour. Needless to say that there was a perfect match that day, which resulted in the fact that Wiebe joined the band. Wiebe will introduce himself further on this week, but let's reveal something already right now.

"As a drummer he is influenced by Virgil Donati, Thomas Lang, Marco Minneman, Dave Weckl, Steve Smith, Benny Greb, Gavin Harrison, Mike Portnoy and many more. So it's obvious he likes Planet X, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree & Symphony X. For those who want to see him doin' an improvised drum solo, check the video below. At the same time we'd like to take the opportunity to thank former drummer Tommy White and wish him a full recovery!"

Footage of Wiebe Slim performing can also be viewed below.
