Rolling around as the main support for Amon Amarth for their Deceiver of the Gods US Tour, the Norwegian progressive death metal band Enslaved took to the stage at The Paramount, and I was there to shoot them for their opening set…

Notes:

I didn’t know too much about Enslaved prior to shooting them, with the exception that they were proggy and metal.

The lighting for them was actually quite good for an opening band.  I think the weirdest part was that the light on front man Grutle Kjellson was typically very dark and moody, while there were often bright spotlights on the two guitarists, Ivar Bjørnson and Arve Isdal.  Meanwhile, keyboard player and clean vocalist Herbrand Larsen was set towards the rear of the stage, with light similar to that of Grutle.

Nothing too difficult in shooting them; it was pretty breezy and easy overall.

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 2.8
Nikon D600 w/ 80-200 2.8
