PROTOTYPE Announces New Drummer

Los Angeles-based progressive thrash metal band PROTOTYPE has announced the addition of drummer Nic Ritter (see video below) to the group's ranks. "Nic has been working with us for the last 6-8 months or so and is responsible for the drum tracks on our new four-song pre-production demo as we begin preparing for the next album," the group says in a press release.

PROTOTYPE continues: "You may see a press release soon about Nic playing with another band [rumored to be WARBRINGER — Ed.] in the coming weeks. To minimize confusion, we want to let you all know ahead of time that he is in both bands and still a member of PROTOTYPE. We can't tell you the name of the other band at this time as it hasn't been made official yet.

"You'll be hearing Nic's work with PROTOTYPE in just a few weeks as we near the mixing phase of the demo songs and will share them with you [as soon as possible]!!!"

PROTOTYPE is featured in the Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock video game with the song "The Way It Ends", taken from the group's sophomore album, "Continuum". Players are able to put their skills to the test, playing lead, rhythm or bass guitar on this challenging PROTOTYPE track. Also included in Guitar Hero III are songs from METALLICA, GUNS N' ROSES, IRON MAIDEN, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, THE SEX PISTOLS, SLAYER and other top rock artists.
