Ex-FATES WARNING Drummer Issues Clinic Recap

SLAVIOR/ex-FATES WARNING drummer Mark Zonder has issued the following update:

"This past week was a very busy week with three clinics. The first one was on Monday at Musicians Institute in Hollywood. Don't miss L.A. much, but what a great way to start my clinic career. Tim Pedersen, Stuart Jean, T and all of the stage guys were great. This place is professional and they made it very easy and enjoyable. The students were great and really enjoy the day's activities. Many of my companies had sent along door prizes and the highlight was one of the students going home with a brand new Zildjian crash cymbal. Not a bad day at the office. Thanks again, guys.

"Clinic two was the next day the Guitar Center in Fountain Valley. Candace and her staff did a great job getting things going. A bit different as we needed to setup a sound system, but once up, everything was great. The staff were very good and supportive.
"Clinic three was Thursday at Guitar Center in Covina. Manager Guy Murai did an excellent job in promoting this event and the place was packed. The sound system was great and it was an amazing evening. All of the staff were helpful and very pleasant.

"I was sort of surprised at the range and variance of the people who came. I had a great time. I am in the middle of putting some of the songs together to be put up on YouTube. Should be in the next couple days."

SLAVIOR's self-titled debut album was released on April 3, 2007 via Inside Out Music. A versatile, melodic hard rock/metal act, SLAVIOR's debut album features elements familiar to Zonder's progressive metal past, but also introduces a wide array influences including reggae, hip-hop, and modern rock.
