Live Music – Arch Enemy @ Best Buy Theater

With a new vocalist screaming at the front, the blue haired Canadian beauty Alissa White-Gluz,  Arch Enemy stormed into New York City’s Best Buy Theater in Times Square.  I of course, could not miss the chance to shoot the band with some new young energy to lift the spirits of New York’s metal heads…

Live Music – Kreator @ Best Buy Theater

I first saw the Kreator a few years ago at Best Buy Theater in New York City (co-headlining with Accept.)  Imagine my surprise when I saw them again at the same venue, this time opening for Arch Enemy.  And it wouldn’t be a Kreator show without plenty of strobe and red lights…

Live Music – Huntress @ Best Buy Theater

Jill Janus of Huntress sure knows how to kick off a show looking suuuuper creepy.  Opening for Arch Enemy on the Hate Eternal tour, I was there to shoot the daring Huntress for my first time…

Live Music – Steel Panther @ Irving Plaza

No one judges you at the glory hole – especially not the mighty Steel Panther.  Warriors fighting for beer, babes and boobs, the heavy metal band with hilariously dirty lyrics came back to Irving Plaza in New York City for what I believe was a sold out show – and they of course killed it.  I was there to take […]

Live Music – Killswitch Engage @ The Paramount

Still making rounds around the world in support for their latest album Disarm the Decent, Killswitch Engage made a Long Island stop at The Paramount in Huntington, NY and freshly rested, were firing on all cylinders…

Live Music – Skeletonwitch @ The Paramount

Opening things up for Amon Amarth for their US Deceiver of the Gods tour, Skeletonwitch was the first of three heavy metal bands to take the stage at The Paramount in Huntington, NY recently, and I was there to photography them in all their wickedness…

Live Music – Enslaved @ The Paramount

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…

Live Music – Amon Amarth @ The Paramount

While I may have missed the chance of shooting them at 2013’s Mayhem Festival, no better how bad the ice, snow, and wind was this winter night, I was not about to miss the mighty viking kings, Amon Amarth.  After a sold out show in New York City, they traveled a few minutes east to The Paramount in Huntington, New York.  I […]

Live Music – Bullet For My Valentine @ The Paramount

I first heard about Bullet for My Valentine a few years ago, when they were touring as an opener for Iron Maiden.  As Henry Rollins once said, when you’re opening for Iron Maiden, the fans there are there for only one thing; Iron Maiden.  So just managing to survive those tour dates earned my respect.  Fast forward […]

Live Music – Black Veil Brides @ The Paramount

Only a few short months ago, I shot Black Veil Brides for the first time, while at Warped Tour (which you can see here: Black Veil Brides at Warped 2013), so I had an idea what to expect: mainly, lots of screaming girls behind me, and a highly energetic band in front.  With lights and a larger […]

Live Music – The Sword @ The Music Hall of Williamsburg

Having only shot The Sword less than 4 months ago, I was fully ready and prepared for what they were to dish out.  For the most part, this meant focusing on the most active member of the band on stage, Kyle Shutt…

Live Music – Castle @ The Music Hall of Williamsburg

Doom metal, heavy metal, whatever you want to call it, Castle is pretty sweet, and rocks pretty hard.  Ironically, I’ve been seeing a lot of female-fronted metal bands lately, something that used to be few and far between.  With Elizabeth Blackwell bringing the bass groove and some haunting vocals, Castle was quite the treat as the opened for […]
