Kerim "Krimh" Lechner (born January 26, 1989) is an Austrian musician, best known for his drumming work for Polish technical death metal band Decapitated. He is currently the drummer for Greek symphonic death metal band Septicflesh.

Before joining Decapitated, Lechner played in symphonic black metal band Thorns of Ivy from 2006 to 2009. Lechner joined Decapitated starting after their hiatus from 2007 to 2009, replacing deceased former drummer Witold Kiełtyka. Lechner played in the band until leaving in September 2012, performing on the band's album Carnival Is Forever.[1]

In 2013, Lechner started an online fundraiser to fund his independently released solo album, titled Explore, released on September 26, 2013. Later in 2013, Lechner filled in on drums for Polish death metal band Behemoth, due to drummer Zbigniew Robert Promiński undergoing surgery.[2]

In December 2013, Lechner posted videos of himself playing the Slipknot songs "People = Shit" and "Eyeless" as an audition to be the band's next drummer, following the departure of Joey Jordison.[3][4] However, his speculative application was eventually unsuccessful.

Lechner endorses Meinl, Tama, Regal Tip, and Czarcie Kopyto.[5][6][7][8]

In 2014, Lechner toured with Polish symphonic black metal band Vesania.[9]

On December 15, 2014, it was announced that Lechner had joined Septicflesh as the new drummer.[10]

On April 26, 2017, Lechner released a new album, titled Gedankenkarusell, collaborating among others with Rafał "Rasta" Piotrowski (Decapitated), Patryk Zwolinski (formerly of Blindead), Chris "VokillCovers" Breetzi (formerly of Upon a Red Sky), Zofia "Wielebna" Fraś (Obscure Sphinx) and Silva Raziel (Thorns of Ivy).[11][12]
