Guitarist GUS DRAX Quits PARADOX

Greek guitarist Gus Drax has left long-running German metallers PARADOX “due to personal reasons.”

Drax will focus on his SUNBURST project, which also features vocalist Vasilis Georgiou (INNOSENSE, BLACK FATE), drummer Kostas Milonas (BLACKLEGS, N.U.R.V., G.K GROUP) and bassist Vasilis Liakos (INNOSENSE, BLACK FATE).

Drummer Alex Holzwarth and bassist Oliver Holzwarth (Alex‘s brother) earlier in the year rejoined PARADOX. The group is currently working on material for a new album, tentatively due in 2012 via AFM Records. According to a press release, the new record will be a conceptual effort that will be tied to the heresy story featured the PARADOX‘s eponymous and most commercially successful 1989 album “Heresy”.

Steinhauer and the brothers Holzwarth previously collaborated on the PARADOX classic entitled “Collision Course” in 2000.
