Benediction Drummer Nick Barker Breaks Ankle; Band Activities Halted

Long-running U.K. extreme metallers BENEDICTION have made the following announcement:

"BENEDICTION have had to put all rehearsing/recording/playing live on hold for a few months due to drummer Nick Barker [ex-CRADLE OF FILTH, DIMMU BORGIR] breaking his ankle after an 'incident' in Estonia!!! It needed plates and screws to keep it all together and seeing as Nick is a bit of a big lad, the doctors have strongly recommended that he sits on his arse for at least six weeks before putting any pressure on it. In the meantime, the rest of the band will take full advantage of this quality time and go out and drink heavily until Nick is ready to rejoin the band back in their Birmingham studio."

BENEDICTION's new album, "Killing Music", will be released via Nuclear Blast Records, with whom the band recently re-signed. The CD will mark the recording debut with the group of Barker, who was most recently a member of BRUJERIA and who played with ex-FEAR FACTORY guitarist Dino Cazares in the short-lived DRIVEN BY SUFFERING (working name).
