Heptah Recruits New Guitarist Samuel Zechin

Brazil's Heptah recently announced the entry of guitarist Samuel Zechin in the band's lineup. Besides the addition of Zechin, Rhads Clemente left the post of lead guitarist of the group to dedicate himself exclusively to the vocals.

"We from Heptah want to announce some changes that were made in relation to the musicians in the band. No one left the group! We just decided it was time to take a step beyond and increase the level of our live performances," said Rhads Clemente.

"To complete this task Heptah added a guitar master. Samuel Zechin is now the new guitar player and Rhads Clemente is now dedicated exclusively on the vocal lines as main singer of the band. Samuel is adapting very quickly to the HeptaH's style, his technique impressed us all! We are very happy with the new lineup," he concludes.

The band also also issued the following history on the new guitarist:
