Converge/Mutoid Man/All Pigs Must Die drummer Ben Koller has showed off the new steel hardware necessitated by his broken elbow in the below photo. The injury occurred as the result of a an unspecified ‘freak accident’ and the resulting recovery and physical therapy for the project have left him unable to work with mounting medical bills, leading to this GoFundMe in which over $30,000 was raised within days on an original $25,000 goal.

Koller commented:

“Had my first post op appointment yesterday and the Robocop arm is looking good. I can’t express in words how moving it is to have so much support from family, friends and fans. What happened is my worst nightmare and I now officially know where my pain threshold is.

I plan on crushing physical therapy when I get my staples out next week and the plan is to be able to still go to Japan with @converge in February. It’s hard to imagine that right now but I plan on doing everything in my power to get this thing back to 100% as soon as possible.

Once again I’m forever indebted to anyone that has donated to the gofundme, especially @yivvyjukes @stephenbrodsky and @sargenthouse for setting it up. Link is in my bio. Does anyone want to see the staples or is that too gross? It looks insane. Love you guys ❤️🖤❤️🖤”
