As the last band on the bill before the headliners for this year’s All Stars Tour, dethcore group Chelsea Grin had a lot of weight of their shoulders to try and get the crowd really pumped and moving…

Notes:

“Djenty deathcore”.  That’s the term I’m going to use to best describe Cheslea Grin, musically.  With lead guitarist Jason Richardson busting out some sweet sweeps and tremolos, C-Grin certainly has an interesting mix of that core sound with some of the better guitar riffs that I’ve heard from the usually pretty boring genre of dethcore.

Alex Koehler is also pretty big in to hand and body movements, often bending and contorting his body into interesting ways, which made him pretty fun to shoot.  Luckily, unlike the rest of the band, there was a decent amount of light on Alex as well, which allowed me to experiment with settings a bit more than with the other band members.  The lead shot of this post is a perfect example of this, which not only shows the decent light, but the ghosting of my Nikon 80-200 lens, which works to create some interesting light effects at times for live music photography.

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 2.8

Nikon D600 w/ 80-200 2.8
