Andrey Ischenko (BLAZE BAYLEY, PAUL DIANNO) Joins SHATTERED DESTINY
Andrey Ischenko has been selected as the permanent drummer for progressive power metallers SHATTERED DESTINY. For their EP “Fragments” the studio percussion was performed by Mark Zonder.
When asked about Andrey joining the band, JJ had this to say:
“Andrey comes from an amazing background of bands. He has played with bands that are non-metal to extreme death metal. He brings with him the skills and attitude to be an integral part of SHATTERED DESTINY. We know we needed a top drummer to fill Mark’s shoes and Andrey is that man.”
Formed in early 2011, SHATTERED DESTINY is a progressive power/thrash band created by lead singer/songwriter JJ. With long-time friend and Lead Guitarist Roman Guryev the foundation of the band was formed. Both come from a long history or musical education in many different styles. The five-piece outfit combines many influences in order to create a new distinct sound. The unique blend of musical influences forms a niche within the metal world.
The band’s initial demo “Fragments” was recorded in Gothenburg, Sweden in early 2012 and received many acclaims. The band has been features on BBC in several countries. Tracks from “Fragments” have received national radio play in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, United Kingdom, Hungary and Austria in additional to a large amount of internet based radio play.
Shattered Destiny is planning to enter the studio this winter to record their full-length follow up and is seeking a label home.

When asked on his participation in the show, JJ had this to say:
“Louis called me and we were talking about things.. and how much has changed in the 15 years since we met. We talked about the drastic changes in media due to the digital age. I explained that music at least holds meaning to me. So even though the music industry is heading towards financial problems, at least I still have a passion for it.”
