Testament @ The Fillmore – San Francisco, Ca. January 30th, 2013

As much as I love Testament, their live show is always a pain in the ass to photograph. Strobes, color washes, and plenty of back lighting. Every time I end up leaving the photo pit shaking my head thinking that I got absolutely nothing, am always surprised when I’m able to pull enough photos together for a set. Fortunately they are so amazing live that I quickly forget about my lack of quality photos. Check out more of them over at Soundspike Media.

Death Angel @ The New Parish – Oakland, Ca. October 25th, 2012

It’s hard for me to believe that I’ve been witnessing Death Angel live for almost 30 years, but indeed I have. I’ve also photographed the band live eight times, and even now there are moments where I have to put down my camera and just watch, because I am still blown away by just how amazing they are live. This show at the New Parish was no exception, and you can read more about it over at ümlaut.
