As reported earlier this year former Belphegor drummer Simon “Bloodhammer” Schilling has quit the band this spring and has joined the brutal death metal sickos of Monument of Misanthropy.

Hey sicko drummers! My name is Simon Schilling and these videos are with my band Monument of Misanthropy. I am self-taught and have been playing drums since I was 10 years old… so basically 17 years now. Learning Kiss, Metallica, Sepultura, Slayer, Deep Purple Songs by listening to the CDs. I have always been fascinated by fast and powerful drumming.

I have been a touring drummer since I was 19 and have toured the entire world with bands like Belphegor, Nervecell, Panzerchrist, Der Weg Einer Freiheit, Fleshcrawl, and Kaoteon.

My current project is called Monument of Misanthropy and we are in the writing process of a new Record.

Ozzy Osbourne To Fill In On Vocals For Pentagram On Spring Tour

With Pentagram founder and front-man Bobby Liebling still in jail, Ozzy Osbourne has been tapped to fill in on vocals for Pentagram’s Spring tour dates. Ozzy will take a break from his farewell tour for the short stint of dates with Pentagram.

Commenting on Pentagram, Ozzy said, “I didn’t know about Pentagram was until I’d left Sabbath. But they were right there doing a very similar thing to Sabbath the whole time.”

On Bobby’s life and current situation Ozzy had to say: “For what it’s worth: That could have been me. That could have been any number of people. That’s why I say to myself every day, ‘God, you’re fucking lucky, Ozzy!’ And I wanted to help out Pentagram and old school metal fans in this small way.”

Liebling is still serving his 18 month sentence for “Physical Abuse Of A Vulnerable Adult” for assaulting his mother. It is assumed that he will retake the helm of the band once released.

The upcoming Pentagram tour dates are as follows:

5/17 – Seattle, WA @ Studio Seven
5/18 – Portland, OR @ Dante’s
5/19 – Boise, ID @ Neurolux
5/20 – Salt Lake City, UT @ The State Room
5/21 – Denver, CO @ Marquis Theater
