WORST. NEWS. EVER
But it’s true. It’s happened. The unthinkable has occurred.
Drummer Andrew Carlston has left Chelsea Grin.
According to Lambgoat, “Though an explanation has yet to be offered up, Carlston recently had a daughter and seemingly wants to spend more time with his new family.” So, once again, a family ruins a great band.
Oh God, I think I’m going to be sick.
How will this incredible band continue without this amazing talent? Can they possibly find a drummer skilled enough to duplicate his parts? There aren’t many other skinsmen in modern metal with Carlston’s ingenuity, Carlston’s feel, and Carlston’s ability to hold one drum stick in each hand. No less an authority than Travis Smith was recently overheard calling Carlston “The best drummer playing with this band right now.” I mean, the dude is incredible, y’know?
I’m gonna go have a drink. Fuck. I don’t know how to continue my day. All other news is going to seem irrelevant after this.
