Toontrack.com has released on their youtube channel a drum playthrough video featuring drummerDirk Verbeuren (Soilwork, ex-Devin Townsend Project, ex-Aborted) performing ‘For That Which May Appease Lions’ from his new project ARBITRATOR with frontman Robert Kukla.
“Massive thanks go out to the phenomenal Dirk Verbeuren and Toontrack team for putting together this video. As expected, you’ll find nothing but the greatest of top-tier drum performance and sample replacement from these beasts on an absolutely mind blowing piece of blasphemous death metal. What’s more, the samples have been engineered by none other than Colin Richardson. I need not say another word.’ comments Kukla.

ARBITRATOR is a project that began in late 2010 as the brainchild of Robert Kukla and officially debut in 2011 with the release “The Consummate Ascendancy” with former drummer Corey Chernesky. Now, determined to release a full-length to top “TCA“, Kukla on rhythm guitar, bass and vocals has begun writing the band’s first album with a whole new arsenal of musicians that includes Dirk Verbeuren (Soilwork, ex-Devin Townsend Project, ex-Aborted) on drums, Myles Malloy on lead guitar and Connor ORT Linning for programming. They are currently working diligently to present to you a performance of fire and hate unlike any other before it. The planned 2015 release will be entitled ‘Indoctrination of Sacrilege’ and will be produced by Sacha Laskow (ex-Divinity, Every Hour Kills), mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy) and album artwork done by Colin Marks (Exodus, Scar Symmetry, Jeff Loomis).

“”The consummate ascendancy” is a fucken impressive first step and I wish the guy all the fucken best with his future endeavors. The talent is there, and obviously – so is the will.” – Global Domination
“…it quickly becomes clear that Arbitrator is more than just another death metal band. These guys are not afraid to put some experiments into their music and they still know via these two long, rather unusual songs how to make a decent impression.” – Lords of Metal
“Honestly, I’d love to hear more of this, so let’s hope Arbitrator can latch onto a label, fill out their line-up, and get working on a full-length follow-up to this very promising debut EP.” – Sea of Tranquility
