We would like to announce that Rauli Juopperi has replaced Jani Suopajärvi as the drummer of Ravage Machinery. The reason for this is Jani's lack of time due to other focuses in life at the moment. No drama was involved, and the decision was made in mutual understanding. However, Jani will still play, as a proper farewell, a part of our upcoming gig at Grande, Rovaniemi. Ravage Machinery thanks Jani for his years in our ranks; we shared plenty of unforgettable experiences with you. We wish all the best for you in your future endeavors, brother!
