Mayhem Festival

Mayhem Festival rolled into the Comcast Center on August 5th unleashing a lethal amount of metal for one day.  With three stages and upwards of ten bands, I wasn’t sure I would survive.

The day stages started out with an assault to the senses.  I was able to capture 36CrazyFists, 5 Finger Death Punch, Walls of Jericho, Suicide Silence and Black Tide before I had to haul ass to the mainstage to catch Mastadon, Dragonforce, Disturbed and the main draw of the night – Slipknot.

In between I managed to run back to the day stage to catch the last song of Airborne and Underoath.  As much as I tried to catch every band that played, I did miss a few.

The full galleries will be up on TheyWillRockYou.com just as soon as I finish going through the edit process with them but I’ve included a few to tease you metalheads.

July/August 2008 Issue of Rocknation

The July/August issue of Rocknation is now available.  It’s now available in 46 states!  Just look for it in your local music based businesses (record stores, music clubs, etc!)

In this issue, I interviewed members of Finger Eleven and Seether (if I interview one more member of Seether I feel like I should be crowned an honorary member!) as well as assisted on interviews with Puddle of Mudd and Shinedown.  It’s a great issue with lots of amazing interviews.  Unfortunately I don’t think any of my photos made this issue but hopefully the next one will!  (I’ve got some great Iron Maiden shots just waiting!!)
