\"I auditioned with several other drummers. According to Slayer\'s management, I was the third pick. As far as my Thelemic, occult, and esoteric beliefs; that didn\'t have anything to do with the consideration of me playing with Slayer. I truly believe that all the drummers that auditioned for the band were not going to get the position to begin with. I think it was just a ploy to bring [Dave] Lombardo back into Slayer full-time.\"
Proscriptor joined the band Melechesh in the latter part of 1999. He has recorded two albums with them, but will not be participating on their new album due to time and distance:
\"I however, will be contributing some lyrical patterns and some vocals to the next album. But, as far as my drumming executions, I will not be participating on the new album.\"
Asked how he manages to to pull off singing at the same time when he is already playing so manically fast on the drum kit, Proscriptor states:
\"Well, I first started singing for Absu on the debut album, Barathrum: V.I.T.R.I.O.L. The reason for this being that the original vocalist besides Shaftiel, Daviel Athron Mysticia did not perform vocally to the standards of Absu. He only sang live, he never sang on any of the studio recordings. He did not rehearse the lyrics the way they should have been structured so to make a long story short, I took over on vocals and by the time The Son of Tipareth was out we were doing a lot of extensive touring and Iíve just accustomed my self to singing and playing simultaneously. (...) To make an analogy, being able to tackle two tasks at once and to make it synchronized is like taking the training wheels off of a bicycle.\"
The drummer is also releasing solo albums which are very diverse: some of it is ambient, some folklore, new-wave, 70s progressive rock and/or a little bit of ambient music. Proscriptor\'s new album will be titled, \"Theta-E\" and it will be along the lines of ethereal, ambient music.
