Davd Diepold Of Benighted Named Guest For Demonstealer

Demonstealer has announced another international drummer to contribute towards the much awaited new release “The Last Reptilian Warrior.” Having already employed the services of Kevin Paradis, the band is proud to announce David Diepold from Benighted.

Demonstealer is the solo project of Sahil Makhija who is the founding member of one of India’s biggest bands, Demonic Resurrection. He dons multiple roles and the music is completely in his own vision with ample experimentation and collaborations. The previous Demonstealer album received much praise and saw the release of several official videos in its support. The new album is said to be more death metal and with a number of exemplary musicians slated to be a part of it, it’s highly anticipated around the world. A funding campaign through PledgeMusic is ongoing at this location.

Makhija commented: “I’m super stoked to announced that David Diepold is going to be playing a song on my upcoming EP titled ‘The Last Reptilian Warrior.’ I’ve been floored by his YouTube videos and when I saw him play live in 2015 with Benighted at Brutal Assault I was floored. I had a chance to meet him at the festival and I’ve been wanting to collaborate with him for a while and I’m super excited that he’s now part of this EP. If you don’t know who he is just watch his videos HERE. That’s not all, I had said that there were going to be 3 drummers on this EP, it might just be 4 drummers now. Stay tuned for details.”

The band has also recruited the services of renowned Indian artist Reuben Bhattacharya (Visual Amnesia), who did the breathtaking artwork of the latest Demonic Resurrection album.

Stay tuned for more details.
