DETONATION Enlists Temporary Drummer

Dutch death/thrash metal act DETONATION which recently parted ways with drummer and founding member Thomas Kalksma has issued the following update:

"Over the past weeks we've had some auditions, but at this moment we're still looking for a drummer. We did find someone to help fill out for the live shows; we'll announce who he is next week. As expected, we will be able to perform on all shows planned, the first being in de Peppel in Zeist on June 6. Hope to catch you there, for most of you it will be the first time to see Danny [Tunker; guitar] on stage with us (for a full set), and it will be the first-ever gig without Thomas (well, apart from the shows we did with Fedor Tieleman in the past, that is). Meanwhile, we've been working on new material and we can honestly say we're in the most creative period in a very long time. The new stuff is gonna kick ass!"

Video footage of DETONATION performing the song "Into Sulphur I Descend" live at the Heavy X-Mass Fest at 013 in Tilburg, Netherlands on December 23, 2007 can be viewed below.

DETONATION's latest effort, "Emission Phase", was released on April 30, 2007. The CD was recorded with Split Second Sound's Jochem Jacobs (also guitar player for TEXTURES) and Bouke Visser. The cover artwork was created by Eliran Kantor.

"Emission Phase" is DETONATION's third and final album for French underground label Osmose Productions.
