Dennis Leeflang will be the the drummer heard on I.N.C. summer release, Bleed the Line. Dennis has had quite a career so let us just post some of what Wikipedia has written:

After mixed successes with local Dutch bands, Leeflang’s career officially took off in 1996, when he joined Dutch gothic rock legends Within Temptation at age 17 as their first official drummer. With Within Temptation, Leeflang recorded the legendary “Enter” demo tape at his rehearsal studio, which made a huge impact on the Dutch and later also the international metal scene and proved to be the official start of a major new movement in rock and metal music. Leeflang played with various other successful Dutch rock and metal bands between 1997 and 2004, including Epica and The Saturnine, before relocating from The Netherlands to New York City, shortly after having departed his band Sun Caged, of which he was a founding member.
Leeflang had been Bumblefoot’s live drummer for European tours since 2002, but became his full-time drummer once having moved to New York in 2004. Though having recorded a song for a Jimi Hendrix tribute album with him in 2003, Dennis’s album debut with Bumblefoot was the 2005 “Normal” album.
In 2006, Dennis re-joined The Saturnine. The band would continue as an inter-continental recording project with occasional live performances in Europe.

I.N.C. is in discussions with a permanent drummer for the long haul, an official announcement with a name will come within the next few weeks.

Next to recording and touring with Bumblefoot, Leeflang recorded drum tracks for numerous albums between 2004 and 2009, both from his own studio and at various studios in the New York area and in Europe. In the summer of 2009, Dennis was asked to join Lita Ford’s band, with less than 48 hours to learn her set list. With Ford, Leeflang toured all over Europe and the US throughout the summer and fall of 2009, including performances at prestigious events such as the Bang Your Head!!! festival in Balingen, Germany, the Gods Of MetalSturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, SD. festival in Milan, Italy, and the annual
