During their current European run in support of the bands most recent hardcore metal bomb, „Reborn In Defiance“, BIOHAZARD’s Billy Graziadei just showed aging doesn’t mean anything to a veteran hardcore musician. The iconic guitarist and frontman got tattooed on stage while performing a sweat driven and crushingly intense gig at the Atlantik club in Freiburg, Germany.
“We pulled into the city and while walking into the club I passed by a tattoo parlor. Dropped in to say hello and met Tom Deyhle from Silverskull Tattoo. We had mutual friends and hit it off. I sat down for some ink before the show then had to split before we finished it so I asked him if he’d be into finishing it during the show. Tom thought it was a cool idea so he came down to the sold-out show that was probably one of the hottest shows we’ve ever played. During „Reborn“ from our new album “Reborn in Defiance” I finished my „Reborn“ tattoo. It took longer than we thought so we went into an old song we never played before called “Ink” off of „State of the World Address“… what an awesome time!” comments Graziadei.
“Another cool detail was that Tom used a wireless tattoo gun, the power for the gun was internal and the controller that he steps on was connected to the gun via bluetooth! Times change, sometimes for the better, sometimes not… glad this was one of the good times!”
The bands current European summer tour continues until July 22, when BIOHAZARD perform at renowned DevilSide Festival, in Oberhausen, Germany.
