Equilibrium's Hati Refaeli Named New Krampus Drummer

Italian folk/melodic death metal act Krampus announced the band's new drummer, Hati Refaeli (Equilibrium), to replace Carlo Andrian, who was struck by lightning in October of 2012.

The press release reads as follows:

"Drummer Hati Refaeli, currently of Equilibrium fame, has joined the Italian metal act Krampus as a full member in early 2013. Both band and management are very excited to add such a talented drummer to the mix, particularly at this point in time: Songwriting for a new album is in full gear, and the band is undergoing musical changes that will both elevate Krampus to the next level and pose a challenge to its eight band members."

Refaeli commented:

"I'm very happy and excited to join forces with this talented and very promising group of young muchachos… I hope that this cooperation will bear fruits and that more people will enjoy the killer tunes Krampus has to offer….".

Frontman Filippo added:

"We are very happy to have Hati with us, he's an amazing drummer with a great style and a friend. We are sure he'll fit the team perfectly! He'll bring some fresh air and professional experience alongside his great attitude!"

Krampus is set to play several shows in Europe later this year (to be announced shortly), before entering the studio for the second time in two years.

I'm wondering if Equilibrium have found a replacement drummer. While I'm happy that Krampus have made it through, I'd be disappointed if this means the end of Equi.

I'm fairly certain Hati is not leaving Equilibrium.

Should have figured as much. I'm sure a statement would have been made. Equilibrium have never really had a stable drummer so I assumed this meant the departure of Hati.
