August 31, 2009, 9 years ago
Guitarist Mike Sifringer from German thrash legends DESTRUCTION broke his finger in Belgium last week."Yes, sad but true, the middle finger on the left hand is broken, the ring finger is cracked," the guitarist reveals. "I have to pause and rest my hand for at least two weeks, so no complications can occur. Destruction will play the Chaos Emergente Festival next week in Portugal (maybe with replacement guitar players), the release party shows, at the end of the month. I will be back on the track for sure!
According to Destruction's website, "the injury happened at the Vlamrock festival in Belgium. Mike and the band were watching a Hardcore show, when an aggressive fan jumped out of the moshpit into the crowd with a kick jump. Mike did not see him coming and he hit his left hand with full power. The negative clinical report of the hospital in Genk was fracture of the middle finger right away."
Desrtruction are set to release their new double live album, entitled The Curse Of The Antichrist - Live In Agony, on September 25th via AFM Records in Europe. The newly announced North American release date is October 13th.
The live version of the track 'The Butcher Strikes Back' is currently streaming on the band's official MySpace page.
The Curse Of The Antichrist - Live In Agony will be available in a limited edition digipack, and will feature the following tracklisting: 'The Butcher Strikes Back', 'Curse The Gods', 'Mad Butcher', 'The Alliance Of Hellhoundz', 'D.E.V.O.L.U.T.I.O.N.', 'Eternal Ban', 'Urge The Greed Of Gain', 'Thrash Till Death', 'Metal Discharge', 'The Damned', 'Cracked Brain', 'Soul Collector', 'Death Trap', 'Unconscious Ruins', 'Life Without Sense', 'The 7 Deadly Sins', 'The Antichrist', 'Thrash Till Death', 'Reject Emotions' (3 drum kits, Wacken Inferno version), 'Total Desaster', 'Bestial Invasion'.
