Sakae Artist: Ken Bedene

Ken Bedene is the drummer for the band Aborted and is quickly becoming one of the most talked about drummers in the metal scene today. Mostly known for his work with the band Aborted, Ken’s hard work, relentless touring schedule, and strong album releases continue to show there’s no faking it here. Ken has been featured on the albums "Retrogore", "The Necrotic Manifesto", and "Global Flatline" from Aborted as well as “In the Absence of Light” from the band Abigail Williams.

One of the many reasons I chose Sakae drums was to be a part of a company who puts in as much love into their drums and artists as I put into my playing. Playing the Sakae name is much more than just playing a drum to me, it is being part of a family. There is nowhere I'd rather be than with Sakae drums.
