Former Arsis drummer Mike Van Dyne is back behind a kit.
He’s joined Troy, New York-based metal band The Final Sleep.
The band features in its ranks Jay VanDervoort and Mike Stack of Burning Human and Jeff Andrews of Armor Column.
“Mike is an amazing drummer, and we are very excited to have him on board,” the band says in a statement.
“When we started to brainstorm about drummers, Mike’s name came up on the top of the list. We sent him some demos, and he was into it. He came back a few weeks later and nailed the four songs we sent him. He really couldn’t have made it any easier for us.
“We look forward to finishing our CD, and getting back out on the live circuit soon.”
Mike left the band back in April, saying he needed to do other things.
