Drummer Randy Black (ANNIHILATOR, ex-REBELLION), who was recently named PRIMAL FEAR's new skinsman following the departure of Klaus Sperling, has issued the following statement to PRIMAL FEAR's fans:"First and foremost, I'd like to say I'm really looking forward to playing, recording and touring with PRIMAL FEAR. As you all know, I did the Metal Gods tour with them so I know that these guys are fun to work with but it also gave me a chance to experience them when circumstances were not favorable. I can only say that even in this very stressful and frustrating situation, they were great, conducting themselves very professionally and with integrity. "I'd also like to make one thing clear: I had no intentions of pushing Klaus out of the band when I filled in for him on the Metal Gods tour. Klaus is a great guy and I'm sure with his talent will be successful in his future endeavors. "I look forward to the future with PRIMAL FEAR and to performing and meeting the fans on tour. Thanks for the warm welcome I have already received."
