Live Music – KoRn @ The Paramount

Flashback to the mid 1990s, when nu-metal was on the rise, and KoRn was there at the forefront.  I’ve saw KoRn late last year, and during Mayhem this year, but had yet to shoot them.  This time however, I finally got my shot to play with what I saw was their amazing lighting…

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 – Born of Osiris @ Warped Tour 2014

Live Music – August Burns Red @ Upstate Concert Hall

Sometimes its worth taking a 3 1/2 hour drive to see and photograph one of your favorite bands.  I made the trek to upstate New York near Albany for the Break Down the Walls tour at the Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park.  With August Burns Red on the bill, I was not about to miss it…

Live Music – Bring Me the Horizon @ Best Buy Theater

You have no idea how excited I was to shoot Bring Me the Horizon again.  After shooting them at Warped Tour, I finally took some time to sink my teeth in to their new album Sempiternal, and even is plenty of metal purists hate it and them, I totally dig the hell out of it.  So now with the songs […]

Metalcore.  Restoring force.  Of Mice & Men.  Night two of The American Dream Tour sold out in New York City at Best Buy Theater.  Austin Carilile.  Special surprises.


Live Music – Issues @ Best Buy Theater

Melodic r&b core?  Poprapcore?  Nu metal hip hop core?  I don’t know what Issues can be classified as, but they’re a band composed of former members of the now defunct Woe, Is Me, and they are climbing up the ranks quickly.  Opening for Bring Me The Horizon as part of The American Dream tour, this band of dudes know how to […]


Live Music – Northlane @ Best Buy Theater

Making a trip all the way from Australia, the progressive metalcore band Northlane has been trekking around the US with Bring Me the Horizon as part of The American Dream tour.  While the last time I shot them, things got pretty nutty, and the security kicked me from the pit after only half a song, I was able to get a full three […]


Live Music – Skeletonwitch @ The Paramount
