Fever Ray @ MTelus – 16/05/2018

What I like when working for Thorium is that I am able to cover shows that I would never go to otherwise.

I never heard of Fever Ray before, but I decided to go there after seing some photos of her with a lot of crazy makeup during a live show. If I do not like the music, at least there will be some good photos opportunities.

I was right, Fever Ray and her feminine crew just rock the place. The costumes, the amazing light show, the scenic performance, the music… everything was great. It is absolutely not something that will please everyone, it is kind of crazy type of show. But they definitely convince me.

Enjoy the photos and give me your feedback!

Theory Of A DeadMan @ MTelus – 08/05/2018

A new challenge was offer to me, get pictures of the headline, not for the first 3 songs, but the first 60 seconds of the first three songs. (Yes, they can be very creative)
This was the rules to cover the show of Theory Of A DeadMan. Why ? I have no idea… but this will gonna be rock’n roll.

At least we had the normal 3 first songs/no flash rule for the opening bands: Falling Through April and Attica Riots.

Unfortunately the lights were not great so most of the image had to be recover using the black and white magic.

Falling Through April left me a good impression but not great, it is a nice band, but I think they are still missing a tiny bit of something to make them really standing out.

On the other side, Attica Riots… SUCH AN ENERGY, I hope to see them again and as a headline if possible. Their show was awesome, I love the way they were using the scene and play with each other. I strongly invite you to see them live.

Finally it was Theory Of A DeadMan and the run against the clock. It was really fun to see every photographer in the pit (and we were a lot) sat down on the media manager signals and wait until the next song. The show was well produce, Good sound, awesome lights, you can see that this is not their first tour.

Tyr @ Theatre Corona – 07/05/2018

Another evening at the Theatre Corona. This time for some folk metal !

It was a long night with four bands:
Ghostship Octavius that I nerver heard of before but was very cool to watch.

Aeternam directly from Montreal ! Awesome band, not the first time I was seeing them and certainly not the last time. If you like folk, you definitely should check them out.

Orphaned Land was a nice discovery. Metal with a bit of an oriental touch, is something not that common. On top of that the musicians were just awesome, moving everything, making faces, a pleasure to photograph them.

Tyr, I know their name sinc e a long time but almost never listen to their music. It was good but not as good as I was expecting. The good part was their show. They really know how to make the crowd going crazy. As a photographer it was really a great time. As a metal fan, a bit less. I may change my mind with a better sound balance.
