You've gotta hand it to the hardcore dudes: They don't back down. Fear Before The March Of Flames vocalist David Marion took one to the face last Friday when Mike Madruga's bass guitar struck him mid-swing. Marion was knocked out cold, but came to shortly thereafter. He and the band quickly realized all the blood pouring out of his face was coming from a puncture wound in his right cheek, where the guitar's tuning pegs hit him.

Ever the trooper, Marion cleaned himself up and finished the set before heading to the hospital via ambulance. Fear Before The March Of Flames will stay on its current Radio Rebellion Tour with Norma Jean and Between The Buried And Me.

Alas, no YouTube footage of the accident is currently available.
