Chilean thrash metallers WARCHEST have announced the departure of original drummer, Pato Javier Peláez. He will be replaced by by Christiansen Oros as a permanent member of the band.

The new 2013 lineup is as follows:

Christian Peláez: Guitars/Vocals
José Tomás García: Guitars
Raimundo Correa: Bass
Christiansen Oros: Drums

Christian Peláez commented: "I'm very sad to see my brother leaving the band because first of all he is my brother and second he has been the only drummer I have always played with from the first days, but I do understand that he has today different priorities for his life nowadays. I wish him all the success and we (the band) thank him all his contributions and talent that he put in the band.

On the other hand, we are very happy to announce that Chris (Oros) is the new drummer. The audition process took over 2 months and
we think that he has the right approach to the style of the band. The band objective for this present year is to record the second full album and start playing live with this new lineup, which will be possible this coming February 23rd, more information on our social network
