My good friend and drum wizard Peijman Kouretchian (Secret Chiefs 3, Girth, Satya Sena, Ghoul) is within a few minutes of completing a 24-hour straight drumming marathon to raise awareness and protest the abuse of prisoner’s rights in solidarity with the Guantanamo and Pelican Bay hunger strikes currently in effect. I sat in with him last night with Bryce Shelton (Badr Vogu, Hollow Mirrors) on bass, and over the last 23 3/4 hours, he has been joined by members of High on Fire, Mr. Bungle, Ghoul, Impaled, Necrot, Saviours, Cyanic, and many more as well. You can check out the Facebook event page for Peijman’s monumental undertaking HERE, and watch the final minutes via Ustream as well right HERE.
Peijman is a fucking MONSTER drummer, one of the greatest I’ve ever had the honor of playing with. I admire and salute his talent, but moreso his dedication and willingness to sacrifice for a cause. MAXIMUM METAL RESPECT!!!
