Says AGHORA in a statement: "Matt is a drummer with a great history and skills and chops galore. He is a perfect match for AGHORA. We are all excited to hear what he does on this record. So far the demos he has done are fantastic.

"The new album is currently in pre-production. Actual tracking will start with in a few months.

"We want to thank everyone who sent in a submission for the drum slot. Everyone who auditioned was great. Best wishes to you all."

AGHORA's second album, "Formless" was produced in part by Neil Kernon (QUEENSRCHE, NEVERMORE, CANNIBAL CORPSE, DEICIDE).

The band's self-titled first album (2000) was recorded in 1999 with the help of Sean Malone and Sean Reinert, both former/current members of CYNIC.
