It’s time like this, ladies and gentleman, when we must acknowledge our metal gods are nothing more than mere mortals.

Drummer Jon Allen — known for his work with Sadus, Dragonlord, and Testament — is said to be recovering after being treated for a blood clot.

Allen was operated on and doctors removed a very large, life-threatening blood clot from his right leg.

Back-to-back state-of-the-art ultrasonic clot-busting treatments were performed on March 7 and March 8 in an effort to clear a complete blockage.

The vascular surgeon says the treatments were a complete success and Allen is expected to make a full recovery. He will return to performing within a few weeks, doctors said.

Once Allen has recovered, he will be back in the Bay to lay down drum tracks for Dragonlord’s forthcoming CD.
