Dååth Recruit Septicflesh Drummer Kerim Lechner For Upcoming EP


Dååth have been in the studio working on music for their new EP, which will mark their first release since 2010’s self-titled album. With drummer Kevin Talley no longer in the fold, the group have enlisted Septicflesh drummer Kerim “Krimh” Lechner to handle the drumming for that new outing.

Dååth guitarist Eyal Levi addressed that on social media yesterday (August 02nd), offering:

Eyal here with our 2nd studio update. Drums for the new DAATH songs are done, and are incredible! This time we collaborated with the one and only @_krimh_ . He is perfect for the new music. His blend of power, tasteful playing, deep groove, and unrelenting speed made him our top choice, and thankfully, he was down!

I became a fan of Krimh in 2020 when @jensbogren mentioned him, and noted that at some point I would work with him. I didn’t know how. I just knew that I wanted to.

Fast forward to late 2021: DAATH was back and new music was being seeded. After 12 years off nobody knew if it would even be good. It wasn’t just good, it was awesome! Once we had a clear initial direction @seanzscreams and I hit up Krimh and to see if he wanted to write the new music with us. Not as a session drummer, but as a true collaborator. We agreed to try one song and see how it goes. One song quickly became more.

The last several months we went back and forth on the music. I would write, send to him, he would write parts on his e-kit, make suggestions, and send it back. Then I would evolve the song further, and repeat the process until we ended up with something amazing.

Krimh elaborates: “I remember back in the day when I went to my local music store to check out “The Hinderers“. I especially enjoyed the groovy elements in DÅÅTHs music and now, years later, I can be part of this project. It felt good to be involved with the songwriting and not just get a final song structure with pre-made midi drum beats. It definitely helped the songs and made them as powerful as they are.”

He recorded with his longtime engineer, @leitner.norbert , who did a great job capturing some ferocious performances. Previously I’ve felt the need to be involved in every part of DAATH productions, and it was nice to trust that it would come out great without me there. And it did!

More studio updates OTW. We are tracking bass, leads, orchestra, and synth. The mix is in September. New music is out in October!
