Nach ihrem Trip durch Holland hat sich Davide folgendermaßen zum neuen Drummer geäußert:
"Our new drummer Sergio Ponti has been astonishing. We are happy we have the fourth Ephel Duath. Sergio Ponti made his debut with us on 28th September he's a fresh talent and he's pushing our sound to new exciting rhythmical perspectives.
Here's some information about our new percussionist: he studied with Mokhtar Samba (Yousson N'Dour,Salif Keita, Richard Bona, Jean Luc Ponty) and Jay Dittamo (Band From Utopia, Junoon). He has played with Mike Keneally (solo artist, Frank Zappa, Steve Vai, Robert Fripp), Arthur Barrow (Zappa, Giorgio Moroder, Diana Ross, Joe Cocker), Ian Anderson, SFOM Orchestra, Bernardo Lanzetti (PFM) and many others. He played in two editions of the Los Angeles's NAMM show. He organized clinic tours for Ellade Bandini, Marco Minnemann, Clive Bunker and Horacio Hernandez. Welcome Sergio!"
