ALMANAC are pleased to officially introduce new singer Patrick Sühl and also welcome Marc Dzierzon as their new drummer. Before becoming ALMANAC‘s new singer, Patrick Sühl performed in the band GUN BARREL and several cover bands who played music by the likes of JUDAS PRIEST, WHITESNAKE and DEEP PURPLE. According to Victor Smolski, Patrick‘s remarkable vocal range makes a second male singer superfluous from now on.
Victor says: “I’m happy to introduce Patrick Sühl to you as our new band member! Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts David is not able to join us on our upcoming tour dates. As an ALMANAC fan right from the beginning, Patrick now takes over all male vocals with his metal power. On our last European tour I invited Marc Dzierzon along on drums. His modern metal style of playing drums kicks ass!”
New singer Patrick adds: “When Victor called me I didn’t have to think for one minute. Do I want to sing in a band with such incredible compositions and musicianship?! Well, of course! Tsar and Kingslayer had their fair amount of airtime in my car stereo and I’m very much looking forward to touring and creating more extraordinary music with this band. See you guys on the road!“
Marc Dzierzon is the former drummer of the technical death metal band CENTAURUS A, having previously focused his drumming skills on technical and progressive metal music including the challenge of powerful and aggressive blast beats. Exactly what ALMANAC need.
Marc comments: “I’m honoured to be a part of ALMANAC, as it’s battery. Being a full member of such a high-level band with it’s instrumentalists and singers lets me reach the next level in my young career and from the very beginning I’ve felt at home behind the kit. I’m looking forward to all that the future will hold and hope to have a lot of positive experiences with ALMANAC“.
This new ALMANAC line-up will play three shows in August, including a festival co-headliner show in Korea, as well as a headliner gig in Portugal.
