DARKANE Drummer Suffers Wrist Injury, Band Postpone Recording Sessions

February 10, 2004

DARKANE drummer Peter Wildoer has posted the following message on the band's web site:

"Hello all metal heads!

"The recording of the upcoming DARKANE album still hasn't started. The reason for this is that my wrists have been ill for one year now. On the tours we did in 2003 I always had more or less pain in my wrists. The last two shows on the DEATH ANGEL tour in November were really bad. I almost haven't played any drums since we got back from that tour.

"The reason for my wrist problems is that one year ago I rehearsed very hard and for very long hours with the band TIME REQUIEM. We did production rehearsals for four days, about 10 hours a day, with full PA and monitoring system. This was too much for my wrists. On the tour to Japan after those rehearsals my wrists were in constant ache. We had to fulfill the tour and you can actually hear the result on the upcoming live CD with TIME REQUIEM called 'Unleashed in Japan'. After that we did the No Mercy tour with DARKANE and my wrists never got the well-deserved rest they needed. As we continued with festivals and more tours for the rest of 2003, of course things didn't get better.

"I've tried all kinds of treatment (chiropractor, acupuncture, massage, medicine etc…) with no luck so far. At least one good thing is that the doctors say that there is nothing wrong physically with my wrists and that it is a bad inflammation. Well let's hope that surgery won't be needed!

"Anyway, 10 songs are finished for the new CD and [DARKANE guitarist] Christofer [Malmström] and me are working on an intro right now. Yes, there will be some kind of bombastic intro on the next CD! The plans are to release it in September or October, but of course that depends on my wrists."
