RAVAGE Drummer Hacks His Thumb Off

Drummer Dan "The Hammer" Kowal of Boston, Massachusetts-area traditional heavy metal/thrashers RAVAGE was injured on a recent camping trip and will be unable to perform with the band for the next few weeks.

Commented RAVAGE singer Al Ravage: "Dan was apparently camping in Maine this past weekend and while attempting to chop some fire wood with a hatchet, he accidentally permanently committed a significant portion of his thumb to the wilderness of the Pine Tree State. Dan assures us that he is OK, but that he will not be able to play drums for at least a few weeks while he recovers. A fill-in player will be used for upcoming shows."

In addition to drumming for RAVAGE, Dan sits behind the kit for the thrash metal band SKULLHAMMER and plays bass for the thrash metal group LICH KING.

RAVAGE's most recent full-length album, "The End Of Tomorrow", came out in 2009 via Metal Blade Records. The band has been working on new material while playing select local shows.

RAVAGE will appear at Champions Bar in Everett, Massachusetts on Friday, August 5.
