Whilst on advanced stage of pre-production mode for their 3rd album MALEVOLENCE reveals that DIRK VERBEUREN is the enduring drummer working with the band. The collaboration started back in May 2011 and DIRK is writing material for the album along with CARLOS CARIANO (vocals & guitars).
DIRK possesses a vast experience performing and recording and even if most of the songs were previously composed when DIRK entered the team, he easily caught up the tempo and delivered the goods with total dedication adding a new dimension to all the material.
Being one of the most versatile drummers around these days MALEVOLENCE wanted to bring the outstanding character of DIRK drumming patterns unto the new material continuously searching for unrelenting ferocity and controlled groove in pure pandemonium style.
DIRK VERBEUREN is the official SOILWORK drummer and worked recently on the latest works for such established acts as DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT, WARREL DANE and in the forthcoming JEFF LOOMIS solo album.
On DIRK own words: “I’m very excited to join the MALEVOLENCE squad for their third album. The new material sounds promisingly raw and pure, so I’m impatient to add some crushing drums to the mix. With the mighty V. SANTURA behind the knobs, I’m confident the result will kill!”
