After being endorsed by Ludwig Drums, Tom Auf Der Axe now also plays Balbex drumsticks exclusively. The Czech stickmaker made a custom signature drumstick to celebrate the collaboration. A big thank you goes out to Patsticks, Balbex importer for the Benelux.
Tom’s very fond of his new drumsticks: “Before I started using Balbex, I used to break a lot of sticks. At first I was very skeptical about the fairly young company Balbex, but after trying them I’m more than convinced by the durability, playability and overall quality of these drumsticks. You should try ’em yourself!”
We love to do covers every now and then. We already did 2 out of 3 of our main inspirators, being Venom and The Misfits. Now it’s time for the third: Motörhead. We think this is the Motörhead song that suits us best, enjoy Sex & Death!
Tom teamed up with the legendary Ludwig Drums and will be playing a Ludwig drumkit exclusively from now on. We’ve already rehearsed with this new kit and it sounds and looks absolutely awesome.
“I’m very proud to be playing Ludwig exclusively from now on. It was about time to play with the best there is, as a lot of my favorite drummers do and did so in the past. Ludwig has the quality, the sound, the looks and the legacy!”
On January 26th our new EP will be released through Ván Records. It’s called Alive Under Satan and it will contain a new skull-crusher called Berserker as well as 7 re-recorded classics from the long sold-out Gods Over Humans, Slaves Under Satan. This is a preview of the cover:
