A little over a month ago, we reported that Immortal Dominion was seeking a new drummer to fill the slot vacated by Ben Huntwork, who parted ways with the group after fifteen years. Evidently, Huntwork was displeased with the band's decision -- at the behest of producer Sterling Winfield -- to enlist a studio drummer to record the Primortal, the act's latest effort. After a brief search, the outfit has named Ben Mangina, formerly of Apt 213, Do Unto Others and Crimson Reigns, as its new timekeeper. And while they were at, the members of Immortal also added another guitarist to the fold. Louis Micciullo, a six-stringer whose earned accolades for his video game composing work and film scores and played previously with Yog Sothoth and Skinned, has landed the co-staring role of FNG alongside Mangina in Immortal Dominion.
