It may be 114 degrees in the shade at the Mayhem Festival today, but Christmas came nearly six months early for Hatebreed’s resident bass brutalizer, Chris Beattie, as he took delivery of not one but two U.S.A. Jackson Custom Shop versions of his Signature Concert™ Bass model. One camo and one relic-ed by the masterful Chip Ellis. Brutal.

“These look and feel, #*@*in’ great,” the delighted bassist told us. “I can’t wait to fire ’em up.”

And 114 degrees or not, one thing’s for damn sure—when Hatebreed headlines the Jagermeister stage this evening, all hell will break loose!
