Former Pentagram drummer running for political office In Chile

According to Blabbermouth, Eduardo "Topo" Topelberg, former drummer of Chilean death metal legends Pentagram, is running for political office. The 45-year-old former musician is hoping to become elected one of ten councilors of Ñuñoa, a commune of Chile located in Santiago Province, on October 28.

Topelberg's campaign jingle, which can be seen below, has had more than twenty thousand views in less than two weeks.

Asked why he stopped drumming for Pentagram, Topelberg told Paniko.cl, "I started to feel a pain in my right leg and I was diagnosed with neuropathy [nerve damage]. I had to stop playing and change some of my habits. I underwent gastric bypass surgery last year and lost 80 kilograms, Now I have two musical projects: Ogre, which performs covers of Camilo Sesto and other songs in Spanish, and my other band is Electroponico, a 'tango trash' project which I began before my trip to Buenos Aires and which I intend to finish mixing soon."
