EVILE guitarist Ol Drake has written an update on his condition after
suffering a blackout which caused a serious jaw injury late last month:

"a few weeks on now and I'm slowly recovering. Lost some weight from
the difficulty in eating, trying to get energy back as much as
possible. The wound on my chin turned out to be infected, so got anti
biotics on that. Went to the maxillofacial.......thing at the hospital
today (eventually got an appointment) and they've wired my jaw shut
for two weeks. I was told this should have been done straight away (at
A&E in Rotterdam) but it wasn't. It's apparently slightly too late for
the wiring to work to full effect (?) but they've done it anyway. I
look forward to more inability to consume food stuffs.

please send all 2 week silence jokes to my myspace page. I allow
everyone to laugh and/or call me Jaws"

With a wired jaw and a canceled tour (with SATYRICON, due to the
deliberating injury), Ol has found other ways to channel his thoughts
in some of the most metal ways possible. Here's a couple of lyrics he
wrote to the tune of the JUDAS PRIEST classic, "Breaking The Law":

"Breaking My Jaw

There I was completely normal, Rotterdam, 4 down
Ol outside the evile transport as we tour from town to town
Felt as though my body died, blurry vision now
So I might as well begin to put some concrete in my mouth


.....I Won't do the rest of the song..."
