Abbath at La Tulipe – 10/05/2024

An evening of black metal with Abbath at La Tulipe. It is not the best kind of show for photographers as black metal bands prefer most of the time dark rooms. Abbath was supported by Black Anvil and Immortal Triumphant.

Here are my photos of the show !

Not much to say. It was a very dark night. So prepare your best low light gear.

Still Black Anvil is using a lot of stroboscopic light, with good timing you can capture cool pictures.

Immortal Triumphant was… really hard to photograph. Really dark and monochrome. BUT if you have the opportunity to stay and shoot during the whole show, during the last two songs, the frontman is lighting some pretty nice red laser coming from his mask/helmet. You could make nice pictures.

Abbath had a bit more variety in their lighting. But still it was hard to get the face of Abbath himself. My only good opportunities were with stroboscopic lights. Also do not miss the drummer, he is interacting a bit with the audience. Otherwsie focus on Abbath. Also do not expect the musicians to move, they stayed mostly static in front of their mic stand during the show.
