It appears that Lyle Cooper (ex-The Faceless) is no longer with the mighty Irreversible Mechanism. They just announced a brand new, more local drummer in Mike Ponomarev. And – not too surprisingly – the dude is an absolute beast on the kit. This was evinced by a video premiered through Gear Gods. You can check out his playthrough of “The Agony” along with the statement from the band in regards to this just below.

Hello, everyone. We were waiting for this day for so long. After a long time of searching native drummer we’ve found him. Today is the day and we are proud to introduce our new drummer Mike Ponomarev. And we want to show you our premiere via Gear Gods. Welcome, Mike Ponomarev – Drummer!

PS: We’re thoroughly preparing for live shows. Stay tuned! Show us your support!
