Alex Rudinger Joins The Faceless


Metal drumming mastermind and recent addition to the Pearl Artist Roster, Alex Rudinger, has made the official announcement that he will be taking over the drumming responsibilities for the American based death metalers, The Faceless!  Alex, who is known for his work with The Haarp Machine, as well as for the truly astounding drumming videos found on his YouTube Channel, has become the buzz of the metal drumming community through his uncanny ability to do just about everything behind the drum kit, from terrorizing speed and blistering blast-beats to technical and mind-boggling drum fills.
The Faceless are currently gearing up for their upcoming North American tour alongside Cradle of Filth.  The 5 week-long trek is scheduled to kick off on February 22nd at Irving Plaza in New York, and will wind its way around the US and Canada before coming to a close at The Guelph Concert Theatre in Guelph, Ontario on March 26th.  In regards to the band’s latest addition of Alex Rudinger, an official announcement was made stating, “…we are very excited to announce that Alex Rudinger is our new full time drummer. We just played our first 3 shows with him in Mexico and what he brings to the band both musically and personally, is simply astounding. We are looking forward to a great future with Alex.”

On this upcoming North America tour Alex will be playing behind his gorgeous Masters Series drums, with a 14x6.5 Reference Brass snare drum.  Alex’s full specs are as follow:
