When all is said and done with The California Blood Tour currently criss-crossing the nation, the poor lads in Knights of the Abyss are going to be remembered not for their live shows but for a series of hilarious and embarrassing viral videos filmed on the road.

It seems as if Cattle Decapitation have taken to hazing their opening act; whether it comes from a place of brotherly love or genuine malice we can’t say for sure! The first incident, you may remember, featured a vicious bitch-slap bestowed upon KOTA’s guitarist Brian McNulty by Cattle Decapitation’s tour manager after the latter over-indulged and missed the second night of the tour. The latest hijinx occurred after Cattle Decap got fed up with Knights of the Abyss’s bass player always leaving his bass out, a big no-no when you’re on tour. So they decided to kidnap the bass, make a piñata out of it and… yep, jizz all over it:

If you’re Knights of the Abyss all of this may be a bit humiliating, but here we are talking about a band we probably wouldn’t be talking about otherwise; a couple of would-be fans are sure to click that there MySpace link I just posted. So I were Knights of the Abyss I’d keep doing stupid shit on tour. Get the remaining dates of the tour (which also features Devourment, Burning the Masses and Son of Aurelius) here.
