Full Blown Chaos singer bitten by black widow

Official press release: After a great show in Ft. Lauderdale, Full Blown Chaos went back to their hotel room to party. Vocalist Ray Mazzola states, "I had a couple of large Jager beverages and passed out on the floor of the room." The next day Ray felt a lingering pain in his knee. "I have never felt such a sense of inner blight," says FBC's frontman. Still not missing the show that night, Ray became immobilized after their set and "took a bunch of antihistamines to bring the cantaloupe sized swelling down." Ray continued to feel soreness and cramping in his joints/muscles. He felt his blood boiling and having fever, nausea, sweats, and shakes. With concern, Ray asked nature buff Gary Holt of Exodus to take a look at his knee. Gary instantly told Ray that he was bitten by a black widow. After going to the hospital, Ray found out the truth to Gary's claim. He was bitten by a Southern Black Widow in his sleep. Too late to receive treatment, Ray had to endure the symptoms and deal with sporatic pain and stiffness. With all this pain, FBC only missed two Canadian dates to follow up with the doctor. In conclusion, Ray states, "fuck spiders."
