German metal veterans Rage found a replacement for ex-drummer Mike Terrana quite quickly.
Peavy (vocalist/ bass) and Victor (guitarist) commented: "We proudly present our new man on the drums, André Hilgers. While working on the Nuclear Blast Anniversary album we were very surprised how perfectly André's style matched our new song "Terrified". So it was obvious that we jammed through the Rage classics, and the sparks were flying immediately. André had a lot of new ideas that fit our style perfectly and he brings a lot of fresh blood and power to the band. We have loads of fun again playing our music".
The new drummer, André Hilgers, is equally thrilled: "Of course I was very happy regarding the request of the guys, and it’s a great honor belonging to Rage now after drummers like Jörg Michael, Efti or Mike Terrana, lambasting the kettles. Meanwhile, we’ve started rehearsing and we will present you a great show in Illingen, with some real highlights of the Rage history. I would like to wish Mike good luck with Masterplan and his next projects. As for me, he’s still a great drummer who was always raising the stakes for me"
