Detroit-based prog-metal outfit Imminent Sonic Destruction has completed the search to replace drummer Pat DeLeon, who left the band earlier this year. After several auditions, the group has tapped Dan Chapa (Switchline, Rockstar) to be the new member of ISD.

Following a North American tour with Pain of Salvation and Kingcrow, Imminent Sonic Destruction began working on new music. The departure of DeLeon sidetracked this effort temporarily, and the band shifted focus to finding a new member who had the right mix of personality, humor and talent to take over the job. Chapa turned out to be all of those things, as well as an imposing physical specimen at 6'7" tall.

"Dan showed up with a tiny kit and proceeded to blow us away with his rendition of our songs," said guitarist and lead vocalist Tony Piccoli of the audition. "His technical ability, feel, sense of dynamics and showmanship are exactly what we were looking for. Right away, we all knew he was the guy to help us spread our own unique brand of Progressive Super Metal to the far corners of the globe. Which, interestingly, doesn't have corners."

Chapa had this to say: "I was honored to be asked to audition, and thankful to be chosen. This is a great group of people as well as great musicians. Needless to say, I can't wait to get to work!"
