Fifth Angel Taps Jeffrey McCormack as New Drummer
"Jeff's studio and touring experience is a positive addition to Fifth Angel," said Archer. "It's a tall order learning the drum parts our former bandmate Ken Mary put down, and Jeff has approached the challenge head-on. We're all on the same page and can't wait to see what the future holds for Fifth Angel."
Jeff was one of many musicians that called the famous Music Bank studio in Seattle home in the late 1980s. McCormack cut his teeth with many of Seattle's elite musicians, including the late Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell from Alice in Chains, John DeVol (Culprit) and even Fifth Angel's current vocalist Tim Branom, just to name a few.
Since 1992, Jeff has been featured on over 60 CDs worldwide. He's performed all across the United States, Canada, Europe and parts of Russia. In addition, fans may remember McCormack from his touring stint with classic metal legends Heir Apparent, as the band played sold out shows in Germany and Greece in recent years. But Fifth Angel was always a part of Jeff's musical style and aspirations.
"Everyone has a soundtrack to their lives and Fifth Angel was a huge part of mine," McCormack explained. "The music on the albums Fifth Angel and Time Will Tell was a huge influence on me as a drummer and playing for Fifth Angel is honestly a dream come true. I can't wait to rock these songs live."
