“Imagine a situation where a drummer who loves to apply nonconventional drumming patterns into metal music meets two guitar virtuosos (one of them never uses a pick and owes his extraordinary performance to his finger-nail technique), add a singer gifted with perfect pitch and a lethal high-range, top it off with a massive bass player who also happens to be a great producer and you've got… Wardrum!”
WARDRUM, based in Thessaloniki Greece, are Yannis Papadopoulos (vocals), Kosta Vreto (guitar), J. Demian (guitar), Strutter (Bass) and Stergios Kourou (Drums).
