Chilean thrash metallers WARCHEST have announced the departure of their lead guitarist Domingo Vidal.
With the departure, the band has added two new members. They have welcomed Jose Tomas Garcia as new guitarist and Raimundo Correa (Ex-NUCLEAR) as permanent bass player.
Correa commented on the addition: "When Chris and the members of the band Warchest contacted me to see the possibility of playing with them, first thing I did was to listen to their material, and it was a no brainer. Immediately I called them back and told yes, I'm in. I have many expectation, first of all comeback to the live shows, we are already working on rehearsals for that and in the meantime writing what may be new material or a new album sometime in the future. For now focus on playing the material and keep growing with them internationally.”
Guitars/vocals Christian Pelaez commented: "We feel really sorry for the departure of our friend Domingo, he was a very important part on the history of the band right from the beginning and we wish the best for him in the future. We thought about looking for a new guitar player but I made sure to convinced Jose to take over, it the right thing to do. Now... the addition of Raimundo Correa makes us happy, he brings new expectations and experience. We just want to come back to the stages and rip it out!”
The new lineup is now as follows:
Christian Peláez: guitar/vocals
José Tomás García: guitar
Raimundo Correa: bass
Pato Javier Peláez: drums
Warchest is currently working on the music video for the track ‘Fear Of The Machine'.
