Chris 'The Destroyer' Mills, drummer with the UK's Finest True Heavy Metal Warriors Conquest of Steel, is currently in hospital recovering from surgery to remove an infected appendix. The surgery was successful but he recently had to return to hospital with a severe infection in the wound. The Destroyer is expected out of hospital in a weeks time and will then begin a period of recuperation before he is able to return to take his position back behind his drum kit.
In the unfortunate event of The Destroyer not being fit for the January shows, stand-in drummer John Savage (Hypnosis) is on standby.
In other news, the band have been confirmed for Hammerfest at Pontins in Prestatyn alongside Iced Earth, Orange Goblin, Suicidal Tendancies and many more www.hammerfest.co.uk
Conquest of Steel are due to head back to the continent in April 2010 for dates in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and more TBC.
