Heathen call in Forbidden drummer

US thrash veterans Heathen have called up Forbidden drummer Sasha Horn for their upcoming 70,000 Tons Of Metal cruise appearance.

He takes over behind the kit from Jon Dette who played with the band on their 2013 European tour.

The cruise will travel between Florida and Jamaica between January 22-26 and features other artists including Arch Enemy, Canibal Corpse, Amorphis, Venom, Napalm Death and Michael Schenker’s Temple Of Rock.

Heathen’s last full-length studio release was 2010’s The Evolution Of Chaos – their first offering since 1991’s Victims Of Deception.
