Wolfram leaves Countess; Mortüüm joins

With regret we have to announce that our drummer Wolfram has decided to leave the band. He made this decision because he feels he can no longer give the band the time and attention it deserves. We understand and respect his decision as we know it was not made lightly.

Wolfram joined Countess early in 2014 and played an important part in the band's return to the stage. His invaluable contribution to the band will be missed by all of us. We wish him all the best in the future and trust he will remain part of the Countess family.

At the same time, we are pleased to announce Mortüüm as our new drummer. He is a skilful and versatile drummer with a lot of experience in many different bands. We have been rehearsing with him for a while and he played his first show with the band in Oberhausen last week. Following Wolfram's decision to leave the band, Mortüüm has agreed to join Countess on a permanent basis. We welcome him to our ranks and look forward to presenting him to our fans at future shows.
