Renos Drummer

Zack is Guitar Player for Thelemite Heavy Metal Band.
Renos was born in Athens of Greece in 1981, and grew up in a small village in Karystos, so drumming was a one-way ticket for me. I was very lucky to found an older relative who was playing music in his mother living room every time he came to the village at the age of 13. I start with the bass, but when I sit on the drum throne, love was with the first sight! I can’t remember myself straggling playing the drums, and the flow was like magic. My first live gig was 3 months after the first time I touch a pair of drumsticks. After a lot of years, I came to Athens and started playing with many bands and familiar musicians. Now for the last 10 years. I have been playing with The Silent Wedding, and we have done two European tours and three albums, as well as domestically we have played together with Saxon, Fates Warning, and Iced Earth. I play with cover bands and other metal, and not only, bands. My motto is to play with passion and find the unique style that expresses you!
