And those among you that heeded our advice might’ve spotted that the band’s drummer, Mark Greening – also a former sticksmith for the mighty Electric Wizard, no less – not only has Billy, the puppet from the Saw movies, emblazoned across the front of his bass drum, but also has the marionette’s visage tattoo’d onto his very flesh. Yep, you guessed it – he’s a bit of a fan.

With Saw VI released on DVD and Blu-ray this week, we thought it was high time we sent Marek Steven to catch up with Mark to delve the depths of the drummer’s obsession with what is – believe it or not – the most successful horror movie franchise of all time.
