John 5 at Foufounes Électriques

I had the chance to see and photograph John 5 at Foufounes Électriques this week. I am a big fan of him and love his guitar play style. It was the first time I was seeing him alone but I already had the opportunity to shoot him while he was playing with Rob Zombie at Heavy Montreal 2018.

John 5 was supported by the great Late Night Trouble, a really nice band with amazing energy! I recommend you to check them out. Hope to see them again with better lighting.

Cradle of Filth at Theatre Corona

This week we had the chance to have Cradle of Filth at Theatre Corona in Montreal. The group was supported by Frayle and Valfreya.

It was nice to finally have a night with good lighting at Theater Corona, last weeks shows were really poor in terms of lighting… I was really happy to see Cradle of Filth again as they are one of the first bands I listened to. I was a bit sad though with the setlist as it was missing a lot of “classics” in my opinion.

At least their lighting was great allowing me some really nice pictures. It was also nice to have Dani with all of his energy, such a pleasure to see him after so many years.

Here are my photos of the night!

Deftones and Gojira @ Place Bell

Saturday night was a big metal night for me ! Deftones was coming to Montréal for a big show with Gojira @ Place bell

I must say that I was more interested in Gojira, I am a big fan of them, than Deftones, who I know less. But still, I was very happy when they played two of my favorite songs, My Own Summer and Changes. It would have been perfect if they also have played Root. But I think this one is a bit more confidential.

Both shows were great, with amazing lighting ! Which is always a pleasure for photographers like me. I was a bit disappointed to not have some fire, like the last time I shot Gojira at Heavy Montreal. The big lighting cube of the Deftones show, providing an amazing lights setup, compensated a bit for the lack of fire.

Thank Thorium Mag, who allowed me to get to Place Bell to shoot the event. And thanks Evenko and Deftones manager to allow us in there.

Symphony X @ Theatre Corona

It was my first time seeing Symphony X live. I have not listened to them for a long time, but nostalgia kicked in anyway.

I was not expecting much, so I was really pleased when I faced a band moving a lot on stage and interacting with the audience. It was really nice to see them with that level of energy.

The band was supported by Trope and Haken. It was not my first time with Haken, but it was for Trope who was a pretty nice discovery. It was a really nice metal night !

Thank Thorium Mag, who allowed me to get to Theatre Corona to shoot the event.

Hypocrisy @ Studio TD

For the first time, I was able to see Peter Tägtgren with his band Hypocrisy at Studio TD in Montréal. He is a genius musician and I am a big fan of his project Hypocrisy and Pain.

It was a bit sad that the sound was not that good and the lighting was also really cheap… the photos could have been far better. Usually, lights are good at Studio TD. Not sure what happened.

Anyway, the band was not alone and was playing with Hideous Divinity, The Agonist and Carach Angren.

Thank Thorium Mag, who allowed me to get to Theatre Corona to shoot the event.
