Death metal drummer Tyronne Silva of Orth, Germany will perform live at Sri Lanka’s first ’Deathfest’ featuring metal heavyweights Fallen Grace, Old Castle Massacre, Funeral In Heaven, Paranoid Earthling and Legion.
Born in Nattandiya Sri Lanka, Tyronne Silva is the drummer of German death metal band Orth.
A musical prodigy, Tyronne started playing the drums almost as soon as he could grasp the sticks.
By the age of 9, Tyronne had built himself his own drum set - made entirely of an empty wooden tea box, a piece of wood, a tennis ball, different-sized plastic buckets, the snare from a metallic bucket, empty cola and Nivea cans for percussion and cymbals made out of metal sheets.
He’s come a long way since. After shifting to Germany in 1992, Tyronne learnt heavy-drumming later with Marcus Rein, (current drummer of Destruction) and afterwards he became a pupil of Lutz Renziehausen, author of ’Dums, vols. 1 and 2’, and studied techniques, different styles, reading and writing notation.
