Band Update - 3/18/2010
World Management and Morbid Angel would like to let the fans know
that rumors about Pedro Sandoval¹s back surgery are in fact true.
Pete has suffered for a long time with a deteriorating disc problem.
He was in daily pain and needed to have this done.
He has recently been treated by a Laser Back Surgery specialist
in Tampa Florida. He is currently in rehabilitation and doing well.
Pete is part of our family and the band¹s History
and we all wish him well and a full recovery.
Unfortunately this type of injury, subsequent surgery and rehab
cannot be rushed and it will take ample time for him to hopefully
be back behind his drums again and out on tour with Morbid Angel.

The band is moving forward on their next recording with Tim Yeung.
Currently the guys are in rehearsals in Tampa putting their finishing
touches on the songs for the New album, which is slated for later
this year with subsequent touring world wide.


Thoughts and opinions doods?

Yeah what a bugger. This rumour has been circulating for ages.

I think it's almost impossible for any drummer to step into Pete's shoes and Tim while a great drummer, isn't on the level of Pete based on his recordings so far. I guess he's got a lot to prove on the new Morbid Angel album, it'll be interesting.

I like Pete, but he's a bit of a one-trick pony. The only thing Yeung will have trouble with is making the slow bits as interesting as Pete did - he's not going to have any trouble just blasting away.

yeah will be interesting to see what the Tim the missile will drop for sure...I bet Pete had the songs demoed so hopefully Tim will play the stuff note for note. He is a drum instructor at MIT in LA as of late so I doubt he will dissappoint. He is the worlds fastest single stroke dbl bass player ya know(well at least the only extreme drummer to compete thus far, Im sure George, Leon or Biji could give em a ride for there money lol) :wink:

imo theres a vast gap between the two drummers, Pete is the originator of much dm drumming, and no one blasts like Pete did on formulas!

Tims score at wfd is cool, but the way the foot contest is set up is a bit retarded (sadly),which is probably why so few drummers theoretically capable of smashing the record enter.

Trey wrote most of the drums for the last few ma records on a drum machine, this might be the score this time round too.

I agree.

It seems like everyone these days is an expert on extreme drumming, but from a listeners' point of view Sandoval is way ahead.
The guy is a living metal legend.

On the one hand, you say Pete is a bit of a one-trick pony, but on the other you say he made the slow bits interesting.
Isn't that the mark of a great drummer - someone who is dynamic and makes it interesting to listen to?
No disrespect to Tim Yeung but there are lots of fast drummers out there, but there aren't many who are fast but dynamic - this is where Sandoval rises above others.

Amen. Imo, there's almost always been faster drummers than Pete but without the feel and control. Consider that almost all drummers can play "rock beats" but few can make said beats sound amazing, the same thing applies here.

Listen to the drumming on 'Covenant', Pete did stuff on that record that still hasn't been beaten imho.

I hope Tim knocks everyone's socks off anyway, good luck to him.

you guys should really just be supportive imo, all this tim suks pete is the man crap don't get anyone anywhere... you guys must be out of your minds to think that Trey and Pete don't have the utmost confidence in Tim... he is the chosen one.... so let it be written, so let it be done..... As you guys pointed out with pete and the drum machine, you really think there were gonna let tim write his parts? :wink:

Neither myself nor Leon made any reference to Tim being a poor drummer and I definitely do not think he 'suks'.

He obviously has to be damn good in the first place to get the gig and I wish him all the best and can't wait to hear what he lays down on record.

My only concern is the current internet trend of dismissing Pete Sandoval's drum talent. He's been around a very long time and doesn't deserve it.

Definately. His drumming capacity on Formulas and Gateways is impressive, especially on Formulas because of this "natural" sounding brutality.

Well, of course I'm disappointed but the best thing is to wait for first sound examples. Maybe it will fit the Morbid Angel style very well. At least Tim is a very good drummer.
