BENEDICTUM has announced the addition of drummer Rikard Stjernquist to the group’s ranks.
Rikard, who started his career with Stockholm-based BRONZE PUPPET, brings a multitude of talent from his longevity as the drummer for power metal legends JAG PANZER of 25 years and nine records to his studio production capabilities.
States Rikard: “I have been very fortunate in my long career to have recorded and performed with some exceptional people/musicians, and BENEDICTUM is no exception. I’m very excited about the future with BENEDICTUM and having the opportunity to perform for their amazing fans all over the world. Thank you, Veronica Freeman, Pete Wells, and Chris Shrum, for this amazing opportunity.”
BENEDICTUM played select U.S. dates on the East Coast in late November 2011 in support of their current release, “Dominion”.
“Dominion”, was released in February 2011 in Europe and in March 2011 in North America via Frontiers Records.
