Dimmu Borgir - Drummer Injured


The following blog was posted on Dimmu Borgir's MySpace page:

"Due to a recently diagnosed injury, Dimmu Borgir drummer Hellhammer will be unable to play drums for the band on the remaining festival dates this summer and the upcoming European tour with Amon Amarth and Hatesphere.

Hellhammer's x-ray confirmed a severe neck prolapse causing numbness in his right arm. He will be going into treatment soon and could - quite possibly - undergo corrective surgery.

Taking over drum duties for the upcoming shows will be Tony Laureano (Nile, Angelcorpse, Aurora Borealis), who played for Dimmu Borgir during the band's North American stint on Ozzfest in 2004 and during festival performances throughout 2005.

We wish Hellhammer a swift and successful recovery!"

Too bad! I won't see Hellhammer on tour... Hope he'll get well soon, so good luck!
Ah, Tony is great too on drums (not as Hellhammer though), so I still can't wait to see them live!

It's always sad when a musician gets injured, even tho I don't listen to Dimmu Borgir that much.

Hmm.. that's too bad. I wanted to see Hellhammer. Can't be too disappointed because Tony Laureno is fuckin' great too.

Cradka, Mayhem's US dates were canceled over a month ago. This probably doesn't bode well for other Mayhem dates in the immediate future, either.

Tony Laureno is a great drummer, so I'm not so worried about how he will play, because he had played before on the tours and that very good.
But I wish best recover for Hellhammer as well...

Isn't this old news?

That blog has been posted on July 25, and so is the news. Don't think you can get it any fresher.

But indeed, Hellhammer has broken his arm in June already. Tony Laureano first filled in for Graspop Metal Meeting and Hell City Festival.

But now the news is in fact a statement that Hellhammer has to sit out the rest of Dimmu Borgir's festival season and European tour dates.

So basically, the news is not old, the title is slightly wrongly chosen.
