Guitarist Walter Trachsler will be forced to miss the reunited '80s thrash band ROTTING CORPSE's appearance the Donnapalooza breast cancer benefit concert on April 28, 2007 at the Lone Star Country Club in Coppell, Texas due to "prior commitments with his tour bus company." Filling for Traschler will be GAMMACIDE guitarists Rick Perry and Scott Shelby, along with RIGOR MORTIS vocalist Bruce Corbitt. This will be the first time Trachsler has missed a ROTTING CORPSE show in the band's history.

ROTTING CORPSE's original lineup included SOLITUDE AETURNUS founder John Perez and Trachsler, who previously worked as a touring guitarist/roadie for the legendary death metal band DEATH.

Donnapalooza is a music event that has been created and promoted by metal sisters in the Dallas scene to help one of their own that has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Various Dallas based bands have donated their services and KNON's Thrashing Alan of "Hard Time Radio" has signed on to emcee the event.
