REBELLION Part Ways With Drummer, Seek Replacement

Germany's REBELLION, featuring former GRAVE DIGGER members Uwe Lulis (guitar) and Tommi Goettlich (bass), have officially parted ways with drummer Randy Black (ANNIHILATOR). The split, which was announced on the band's web site, came about as a result of Black's decision to join fellow German power metallers PRIMAL FEAR, thereby leaving him little time to focus on his other projects.

REBELLION, who claim they found out about Black hooking up with PRIMAL FEAR through fan postings in the guestbook section of their web site, are currently seeking a replacement drummer. All interested parties can contact the band at

The group, who released their second album, "Born a Rebel" (Drakkar Records/BMG) in April, are tentatively planning on embarking on a headlining tour in the fall.
