NEGATOR, one of Germany's leading extreme metal outfits, has announced the addition of drummer Asgard Niels to the group's ranks.Asgard has previously played in several different bands such IRATE ARCHITECT and HOLY MOSES. At present he is "beating the shit out of his drums" with GOREZONE and INTO OBLIVION. However, it is to be understood that his main focus is now NEGATOR. Comments NEGATOR vocalist Nachtgarm: "We hope that now things have been brought together that belong together. This unholy alliance is built to last. Asgard and I know each other for many years and now we enforce evil spirits under the darkened banner of NEGATOR. It is beyond doubt that Asgard is one of the best and strongest drummers in whole Europe. He's got a damn hard punch and there are hardly any drummers out there that are able to keep such tightness at a high speed Asgard manages to deliver. With Asgard now among our ranks we face even more opportunities. Or, as SLAYER said, 'Evil has no boundaries!' The same applies for NEGATOR now even more. The new material will prove this right away. From now on the Panzer roams with even more power and might!" NEGATOR is hard at work on new material which is tentatively due for release in the first quarter of 2012.
