Swedish warmongers Watain, obliterated Tampa Bay’s The Orpheum with their lethal formula of Scandinavian Black Metal. They came to town as part of the Decibel Magazine Tour’s line-up and oh boy… their set simply ruled! Vocalist Erik Danielsson magnetic aura involved the helpless souls of those in the crowd and by the end of the show instead of an audience the band had in front of them a legion unconditional believers. Hail!

California’s Deafheaven came to Tampa Bay on their current tour with French metallers Alcest. With their ferocious mix of Black Metal, Indie Rock, Shoegaze and Screamo, the band made a huge positive impression on the crowd. They were promoting their debut recording Roads To Judah. Images snagged on a Nikon D-90, Nikkor Lens 19-105mmm f: 3.5 and Tamron 28-75 mm f:2.5.

Canadian singer/songwriter LIGHTS stopped here in Ottawa to perform a killer set on November 23rd. The energy was amazing and the crowd was absolutely ecstatic to see her perform. Her set included both songs from her latest album Siberia as well as her first full length The Listening, and fans got to enjoy an encore which included an acoustic version of “Cactus In The Valley”. Insane show!

The Flatliners, one of my personal favourite bands, played an amazing show on the night of October 16th, co-headlining with Living With Lions. They played a solid set, balancing older with more recent songs, and totally killed it. Amazing energy from both the band and the crowd! Photos taken with a Nikon D90, 14-24mm f/2.8.

Dinosaur Bones performed an amazing set on the night of October 7th, playing a number of songs off their latest release titled My Divider. They had not performed in Ottawa in quite some time, it was a pleasure for fans to welcome them back after so long. The set absolutely did not disappoint! Images via a Nikon D90, 14-24mm f/2.8.
