This guy takes the old adage 'the show must go on' to an agonizingly new level!

Otto Schimmelpenninck, bassist for heavy metal band Delain, suffered a stage mishap and nearly lost a testicle!  Despite the incredible pain, Otto finished the show!  According to a post on facebook:

“They shoot silver streamers into the audience usually during 'THE GATHERING'. We've been using this for ages without any problems at all, but in Birmingham things went wrong.

“In my enthusiasm I did not pay attention, and happened to be very close when the streamer fired. It hit me from the back, in my genitals. Although pain was pretty bad, I was merely pissed off at myself for not paying attention.

“During the next song, pain got worse, and I had the feeling I was bleeding. Pretty soon pain got to the point where I could barely stay conscious any more. I did manage to finish the show and even squeeze out some grunts.”

After having 500 ml of blood removed from his grapefruit sized testicle; Otto is expected to recover fully and Delain will resume their tour.

That's Metal as f*** right there.
