Tony Laureano (born (1973-01-25) January 25, 1973 (age 49)) is a heavy metal drummer originally from Puerto Rico. He has been playing for a number of metal bands (either as a full band member or a session drummer) including Dimmu Borgir (2004-2005, 2007-2008), Nile (2000–2004), Angelcorpse (1998-2000), Malevolent Creation (2003), God Dethroned (1999-2001), Acheron (1998), Aurora Borealis (1994-1997), Belphegor (live 2007), Nachtmystium (sessions 2008), 1349 (touring 2006), Brujeria (2006-) and Skeletonwitch (2011). He has touring drummer with Dimmu Borgir , including their performances at Ozzfest 2004, replacing Nicholas Barker (which is included with 2005 reissue of Stormblåst) and at Wacken 2007. Laureano also took the place of 1349 drummer Frost on the Enslaved tour during September 2006 in the UK, as Frost was busy writing material with Satyricon.

In June 2007, he returned to Dimmu Borgir stepping in for Hellhammer, who was recovering from a neck injury. He was later replaced by ex-Vader drummer Daray in late August, who was to become Dimmu Borgir's new drummer for the upcoming album. Tony toured in summer 2009 with All That Remains, due to their drummer Jason Costa suffering a broken hand during the week of June 21. In addition, he is currently touring with 1349 on several dates of Cannibal Corpse's "Evisceration Plague" tour, on account of drummer Frost reportedly being delayed from his visa to the US in Norway due to "additional paperwork."
