SCARLET AURA – Sorin Ristea leaves band

Sorin Ristea, Scarlet Aura’s drummer, leaves the band. Matthias Klaus will get his drummer crown back in the band.


There’s no secrecy behind the hard times artists and small businesses are going through because of the pandemic situation and unfortunately it was not an exception in the Scarlet Aura band. Sorin Ristea, the drummer of the Romanian heavy metal group had to leave the band in order to put his entire focus and efforts on working for his business and therefore the drummer seat was left vacant. Luckily, as it was proved before, Once a Scarlet, always a Scarlet is what Matthias Klaus said while getting his drummer crown back in the band. Matthias played with Scarlet Aura in 2016 and joined the band on tour with Tarja Turunen. He left due to personal reasons and declares: ” I left the band because of personal issues that I had to deal with but I am now stronger than ever and more ready to be part of this amazing band that I deeply love and respect and with whom I’m happy to say I am now a family. The songs are outstanding, I am happy to play them and honestly it feels like I have never left”.

The band stated: “Sorin will always be a Scarlet and he will always be a part of us, we cherish every day that we worked together and wish him the best. We separated in very good conuditions because we are brothers in metal. Destiny has its own way of dealing with healing wounds and so Matthias has this opportunity now to take care of his own. We are Scarlets United, we believe in each one of us and we are here to stay and we are here to play heavy metal! Stay Scarlet, love you all!

Shortly after releasing the 4th single – Utopia – from the upcoming album – The Genesis of Time – that is going to be out on 10 of September, the band had to deal with this situation and postponed the release of a new video for the latest single. The new date of the video release is 30 of July so Subscribe to the band’s YouTube page, follow the band on Instagram, like on the Facebook, follow on Spotify –  to be connected for the new video and music and join the newsletter for Sunday metal goodies on your email address –
