Dariusz "Daray" Brzozowski, a Polish heavy metal musician who is worldly renowned by his signature drumming for bands such as DIMMU BORGIR, VADER, MASACHIST, AZARATH, NEOLITHIC, INSIDIOUS DISEASE, PYORRHOEA, VESANIA, HUNTER and BLACK RIVER, will hit Australian soil next month.
Currently drumming for DIMMU BORGIR, whom he joined prior to the release of 2010's "Abrahadabra", Daray will hold drum clinics followed by meet-and-greet sessions with his fans.
Please note there are two ticket classes during this tour, and as such, signing of merchandise, CDs, etc., requires a "meet-and-greet VIP" ticket.
For more information, see the poster below.
Two more dates have since been added to the tour:
* Thursday, September 27
Jubilee Hotel, Brisbane
* Saturday, September 29
Burleigh Underground Drummers
In a 2008 interview with Metal-Rules.com, DIMMU BORGIR guitarist Silenoz was asked how he would rank Daray against all the other drummers the Norwegian black metal band has worked with over the years. "I would say that he is the most steady and consistent drummer I've ever played with, no matter what," he replied. "He's extremely reliable, hard-working, determined and he really, really pushes himself, you know? Even if he plays a really killer show and the rest of us have nothing to complain about, he still is not happy. It's not good enough. That's the attitude we need, you know? After all, the drummer is the engine in the band and you won't get anywhere if you only have oil and gas…you need the engine to work too…so… he's awesome."
