If you’ve ever been curious about being tattooed by one of your favorite musicians, you’ll be happy to know that some Avenged Sevenfold fans had the experience with Synyster Gates. Except, he was drunk.  Gates apparently wasn’t the only member of Avenged doing the tattoos though — frontman M. Shadows was as well. Zacky Vengeance, Johnny Christ and Brooks Wackerman were in some of the photos too on their social media pages.

As promised, The Black Dahlia Murder returned to the concert stage on Friday night (Oct. 28), playing their first show since the death of frontman Trevor Strnad earlier this spring.  Strnad died back in May at the age of 41, and in the period after his death the band contemplated the best way that they could honor their singer.

Rock on! If you missed out on Anthrax and Black Label Society touring together in 2022, fear not as a second North American tour leg has been booked for early 2023, with special guests Exodus joining the bill as well.  The tour gets underway Jan. 17 in Boise, Idaho, making four stops in Canada along the way as the bands cross the country
