Aurel is a french professional drummer, working for bands and artists worldwide and a TAMA drums demonstrator.
Aurel began playing drums in rock and metal bands at 15 and by the time he was 17 he had chosen drums for a career. After gigging and recording with musicians in Paris he moved to Nancy to enter the Music Academy Internationale (M.A.I) where he took lessons from their talented staff and gained experience playing in a band.
In July, 2000, Aurel earned his diploma at M.A.I. with honorable recognition from the faculty. By September he began his first tour in the east of France with his band, KOOMA, but also took part in several different projects performing about 80 gigs that year.
Kooma toured several more times between 2002 and 2004 but during one of these tours Aurel stepped in and rescued RON “Bumblefoot” THAL (Guns N’ Roses) becoming his emergency replacement drummer.

I've played with Aurel in Bumblefoot and Plug-In. He's one of the most versatile drummers I've had the chance to play with. As an engineer, I was also fortunate to record him for Lokurah, one of his other bands. It was probably one of the smoothest recording sessions I've ever experienced. Top musicianship here !
