Emmure frontman electroshocked
2013-05-08 by jslavos | 150 Comments

Frank Palmeri, frontman of Queens' metalcore band Emmure, got electroshocked from his
microphone while playing a show in Moscow. Palmeri, as always, gave his insight on this
incident through a couple of wisely chosen words on his personal twitter account:
"Sorry I almost literally died on stage tonight #Moscow. Getting zapped by 200 volts
feels like shit. Ya almost got me tonight. #STILLALIVE."


The show was immediately cancelled, and the band will resume their tour since Palmeri
sustained no severe injuries.

Lol "almost literally die" wtf. Like Llama said, shit was nothing compared to being tased. Not that
i've ever been tased but 200v to 10k, that seems like a huge fucking difference and all a taser gun
does is disable the body for a while.

Well, in this case, I’m talking about getting even with old foes since there's no order or law."

Using the word anarchy wrong: -1

Consider this song an introduction to things to come. For the record, my name is Thanos Reignz, although you may know me as Frankie Palmeri. My true self is beginning to emerge, and this song is merely a preview of the story I am preparing to share with the world.

electroshock can mean both. look at the title, it's used as a verb. receiving electroshock and being electroshocked CAN mean the same thing, but it doesn't always. seriously, knowing what you're talking about before speaking helps a great deal, try it sometime.
