Yesterday Marky Edelmann, drummer for thrash metal band Coroner, announced that he will be quitting the band by the end of February. He released the following statement via the
3 years ago we started rehearsing together for our reunion tour after a break of 15 years.
We thought it was going to be a matter of a few shows. Now, after 3 years, we have
performed 27 shows all over the world! I cannot find the words to describe how much i
enjoyed every single gig.
I want to thank every single one of you for coming to the shows and giving us such a
phantastic time. It was a great pleasure to perform for you, shake your hands and
sometimes have a drink and a chat after the show.
Many thanks to all the promoters that booked us, without you we would still be sitting in
our bunker rehearsing. I'm very sorry the shows we had hoped to do in Mexico, South
America, Japan and Australia never happened. I was looking forward to those very much...
The following is not easy to say and believe me I have given it a lot of thought.
I will leave Coroner at the end of February this year.
I think we have played more than enough reunion shows and now it's time to either stop
doing reunion shows or to move on with a new album. For me it was clear from the start
that I didn't want to record another album. I love the sound of Coroner but for me it's
the moment to explore new sounds without the weight of the past on my shoulders.
Ron, Tommy and I agreed that Coroner should continue with another drummer. They will
announce who it's going to be on the coroner-reunion page.
With all my heart I wish 'em all the best for the future. We will be brothers forever. I
will continue with a new band that you will hear about in the near future.
So thank you all once more and I hope we are gonna see you very soon!
