We will be doing a headliner show at FHMF Club in Saaristobaari, Turku on the 25th of May! The warmup for the evening is the brilliant Fireproven! It will probably be the last show of the year before we fully immerse ourselves on completing the upcoming album. We will be doing 4 new songs so all of you crazy prog metal fans out there who have an opportunity to attend the club, we highly recommend you to do so ;)

Finnish progressive metal band Simulacrum recruited a new amazing drummer, Tatu Turunen for their upcoming third album and live shows. The band decided to change drummers because of scheduling problems and no drama was involved. Simulacrum acknowledges the awesome work Henri Kallio did on the album Sky Divided and pays him the homage he deserves. Henri's playing will definitely be heard in the future regarding various projects!

Tatu Turunen is known for his work with Autere and Jack Over Kings and he has artist deals with F-MusicYamahaSabianProMark and Evans. He comments: "I'm very pleased by this new assignment and I'm really looking forward to all the challenges these guys throw at me throughout the years to come!"



Tatu's musical roots lay heavily in acts such as PanteraSlayerMegadeth and Lamb Of God, but he is excited in how playing progressive music could take him to new levels as a musician. Take a look at his brutally accurate and metal-infused playing style from this Sky Divided live video recorded and videoed in May 2017 at the Simulacrum rehearsal studio. This clip also features the band's second singer Erik Kraemer on an official recording for the first time!

Today we had a vocal practice at the Simulacrum rehearsal space. Both Niklas and Erik have an equal amount of lead and harmony parts live and sometimes it is good to focus just on rehearsing the vocals without the rest of the band disturbing \m/
