Mike Sifringer, guitarist of German thrash metal legends Destruction, has revealed that he broke his ring finger at a recent concert in Belgium.

"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."

Proof that kicks do not belong at metal shows. What a c***.
