Stratovarius Posts Video Introducing New Drummer Rolf Pilve

Stratovarius recently announced the recruitment of new drummer Rolf Pilve, who is taking over after the departure of Jörg Michael. The band has now posted a video clip online introducing Rolf, which can be viewed below.

Vocalist Timo Kotipelto commented on the addition of the new drummer: "Although the competition was fierce, Rolf was clearly the best one of the bunch. His precise playing, sureness and right attitude was there right away. He has an astonishing technique and to top that of he has a very musical way of playing, so he can bring something of his own into our old songs as well. Rolf has played a variety of different styles of metal, so fast tempos or more progressive parts will not be a problem. Whatever songs we might compose in the future – I have no doubt that he will be able to play them. He had to be a really good player, but also a nice guy. We were not looking for a Jörg Michael clone."
