Italian death metal act Hour of Penance are pleased to announce the addition of drummer James Payne (Hiss From The Moat, Notimefor) to their lineup.
Guitarist Giulio Moschini had the following to say: “Please welcome our new drummer James Payne. I’ve known him for quite a long time and he’s a very talented drummer. We're proud to have him on board ! James will be playing with us starting at Hellfest on 6/17, and all of our dates on the Extreme fests here in Europe."
Payne is currently endorsed by Tama, Vic Firth, and Zildjian and hosts his own Youtube show in which he has interviewed several drummers including Derek Roddy (Hate Eternal,Nile), Inferno (Behemoth), Paul Mazurkiewicz (Cannibal Corpse), and more. Payne commented on joining as follows: “I started my drumming career as a death metal drummer, but over the years I ended up playing several different styles. While I still enjoy playing those styles, death metal has always remained in my heart and now it’s time to bring it back! I am honored to be playing with a great band such as Hour of Penance!.
I've played drums since I was a young kid and in my career I've had the chance to tour around the world with several metal bands such as Hiss From The Moat and Awaken Demons. I have also worked with Broken Heart College. In 2011 I started my Youtube channel with Berklee graduated student Alessandro Lombardo: The DrumBrotherProject and now I'm ready to start my experience with the great band Hour of Penance".
