Famous Brazilian drummer will tour the world with glam metal legends!
Aquiles Priester is a very spectacular drummer. His enormous kit if often equipped with some freaky details, and his perfect playing brought him to the audition for the next Dream Theater drummer when Mike Portnoy has left the band. He has played in Brazilian progressive metal band called hangar, and he also has worked with such acts as Tony McAlpine or Noturnall. Now he has joined the heavy and glam metal legends- W.A.S.P for their Europe tour, which was organised to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the The Crimson Idol release. It was one of their most successful records, that’s why this tour is called Re-Idolized: The Crimson Idol 25th Anniversary World Tour.
Here are some of Aquiles’ comments about this awesome situation: I’m very happy to announce that I will be touring Europe this fall with W.A.S.P. It’s a huge honor to be part of the ‘Re-Idolized’ tour. ‘The Crimson Idol’ is one of the most important progressive concept albums in the history of heavy metal music. I would also like to extend my gratitude to W.A.S.P.: Blackie, Mike and Doug. Thank you, for having me aboard on this tour. I’ve learned a lot from all three of you.”
Here is the video from their first show on tour. It was filmed yesterday in Gotheburg, Sweden. Check it out:
