Vitrol has announced new drummer Matt Kilner (Gorgasm, Iniquitous Deeds, Nithing) in place of Scott Walker. Vitrol said there's no bad blood between them and Walker, but that his work schedule didn't jive with Vitrol's rigorous touring schedule.
"Those of you who caught us on our most recent tour in support of Exhumed might've noticed another new face behind the blast helm," said Vitrol in a statement. "We are very happy to announce that Matt Kilner will be handling full-time drum duties for Vitrol moving forward.
"Many of you have asked what has happened to Scott Walker, our previous full-time drummer that is featured on our Pain EP and debut full-length. Scott's talent and company has been missed, but sadly, his work and lifestyle never permitted him to tour. We've been blessed with the opportunity to rehearse and perform with several incredibly talented session drummers over the last three years, but we're very pleased to have a new rock-solid foundation to continue building upon.
