Stefan Schwarzmann (born 11 November 1965,[1] Erlangen) is a German drummer who has recorded for Accept,[2] U.D.O.,[1][3] Running Wild,[1][3] X-Wild, Krokus and Helloween.[4] Schwarzmann joined Helloween as a replacement for departing drummer Mark Cross in 2003. Although Stefan got on well with the members of the band, he had other musical preferences. As a result, he chose to leave Helloween after the Rabbits on the Run Tour in early 2005.

In 2012, Schwarzmann and guitarist Mille Petrozza were contracted to record the album Revolution with Lacrimosa.[5]
