Iced Earth @ Theatre Corona- 25/03/2018

Another great night of concert to cover.
The first band was Kill Ritual, even if I did not really like their songs, their performance was AMAZING, it was such a pleasure to shoot them, doing faces, moving everywhere. Would like more band like that!

The second band was Sanctuary, really nice band, playing what I called Old school metal, but still, damn efficient!

FInally the headline was Iced Earth, I never heard their songs but knew their name and it was good old stuff too. If you like heavy metal, definitely give them a chance!

Enjoy the photos and give me your feedback!

Nightwish @ MTelus – 20/03/2018

Just WOW. N I G H T W I S H.
If I knew when I was a teenager that one day I would be in the pit just a few meters from these guys… I just won’t have believe it.
Nightwish is not really a band I am listening to since Tarja left. But I still like their music and they were kind of the soundtrack of my teenage years.
So it was a pleasure to see them live and moreover playing some of their old songs.
And if it was not enough, photographer were allow to take picture during first three song from the pit, but also during the whole show from the crowd ! This is so rare these days…

I had a blast !

Soulfly plays Nailbomb @ Foufounes Electriques – 14/03/2018

For the first time, I shot the same show twice in a couple of month: Soulfly play Nailbomb
Unfortunatly the light was not better this time (you can find the first shoot here) but you know, it is ouf job to deal with that.
I find my Soulfly photo better than last time, do not know if you agree with that..

The show was nice, and it is always a pleasure to see legend of metal playing in front of you. I hope to see the other Cavalera brother some day!

The opening band was Today is the day, and sorry but I really did not like it, too experimental for me, and the balance was not good at all.

Here are the photos !

Septic Flesh & Dark Funeral @ L’Astral- 09/03/2018

We often heard that light is really bad during black metal show, and be honest, it is true.
But for once the show of Septic Flesh and Dark Funeral had really good lights ! So it was a pleasure to photograph.
I am listening to Septic Flesh since a long time and it was real joy to see them live.

The two bands also had a really nice opener: Thy Antichrist.
Hope to see them again !

LP @ MTelus – 28/02/2018

LP was coming into town with Kat Cunning and The Years.
We got a beautiful pit with a bit of the scene forward like in a fashion show. It Really like that, it allowed LP to come closer to the fans, and we were able to protograph from behind which is generally not the case from the pit.
Really good show.

The Decibel Magazine Tour – Enslaved @ Theatre Corona…

On sunday the Decibel Magazine Tour was stopping by Montreal for one night of Black Metal.

The line up was bands I have never heard about (except Enslaved) but it was pretty good.

The evening started with Khemmis, then Myrkur, Wolves in the Throne Room and finally Enslaved !

I would have loved to have more light… but with too much light it won’t have been true black metal.

3D Robot Monster @ Crobar – 10/02/2018

Last night I discovered a very intimate concert gig: Crobar. As many small place where you can see local bands play, the lights were… kind of crappy.
But I was there to support my friend Arnaud playing with his band 3D Robot Monster.I recommend you to check their music, it is pretty cool if you like “rock garage”.

I did not forgot my camera so tried to do some shots even with almost no light (Even with my F1.8, got lot of noise). Hope to see them with better photography condition next time.

Here are the photos:

Unfortunatly ss the show started late, I was not able to see the other band of the night.

1/4 – A dream come true, on the 25th January I was able to shoot my first band of the Big four of trash mteal: Anthrax. I was just incredible for me and such an honnor.
We had the chance to have Havok as premiere and the show ended with the AMAZING Killsiwtch Engage, one of my favorite bands since a long time. This guys are so crazy and so good at the same time.
I had a blast !
