SURVIVORS ZERO Parts Ways With Drummer, Announces Replacement

Finnish death metal combo SURVIVORS ZERO has parted ways with drummer Reima Kellokoski and replaced him with Seppo Tarvainen (THE SCOURGER, TUKKANUOTTA). According to the group, "The change was due to Reima's commitments with his main band, IMPALED NAZARENE. . . As 2010 will be an anniversary year for IMPALED NAZARENE, [Reima's] allegiances, of course, lie with his band of 15 years. As both bands will tour actively and will not settle for compromises, both SURVIVORS ZERO and Reima felt this was the best decision and this departure is not in hostile terms in any way."

SURVIVORS ZERO's debut album, "CMXIX", was released on September 9 via Cobra Records. The CD was mixed at Black Lounge Studio in Avesta, Sweden while the mastering was handled by Pelle Henricsson at Tonteknik Recording in Umeå, Sweden.
