BIO
EXCITER’s Rik Charron was born and raised in the Ottawa area, Ontario, Canada in 1967.

Charron started drum lessons at the age of 7 by learning jazz, rock, and big band styles. He had the honor of taking four 4-hour drum lessons from the legendary BUDDY RICH at the age of 12.

Charron went to his first concert at the age of 10, the KISS “Love Gun” tour, and he was hooked on heavy rock and metal ever since. He played in a classic rock band throughout high school with guitarist Al Morier (Barstool Prophets) and joined local metal bands and played the local club scene.  In 1996, Charron joined Canadian thrash metal legends, EXCITER, after the departure of their original drummer.  Since joining EXCITER, Charron has played numerous tours and shows throughout Europe, South America and the United States. You'll hear the fast, aggressive, and brutal drumming that Charron is known for on the EXCITER albums “THE DARK COMMAND”, “BLOOD OF TYRANTS”, “THE NEW TESTAMENT”, “THRASH SPEED BURN” and “DEATH MACHINE”.
