At the Gates, Rotten Sound @ Nosturi (Helsinki), 22 Nov 2014

At War with Reality live. Who could pass up this opportunity? Well, not me. Especially with the chance to watch some of it through the lens. At the Gates showed in their recent Helsinki gig that no matter how long a great band takes between albums, that what you get live will have as much raw passion as the original crowd favourites. The night was accented by Rotten Sound's aggressively brilliant opening set.

The Black Dahlia Murder, Nerve End @ Tavastia Klubi (Helsinki), 20 Nov 2014

The Black Dahlia Murder teamed up with Finland's Nerve End to bring an onslaught of midweek Extreme and Melodic Death Metal to Helsinki's Tavastia Club. With a crowd of loyal locals, and special guest 'Rocky', Nerve End set the mood high and heavy hitting. The Black Dahlia Murder whipped the crowd into a circle pit frenzy. With no crowd barrier, Trevor Strnad reached straight into the front row to shake hands, and this photographer had to stay light on her feet to avoid moshing Finns.

NeObliviscaris with guests Beyond Creation

Like a well oiled machine executing notes with extreme precision NeObliviscaris, the musicians band, for me this was art, there music is compiled with so many layers and textures that painted the music that made this band one of my personal favourites and a joy to photograph! I can't recommend these guys enough, go out and buy there latest offering you will not be disappointed.

Prong, The HiFi Bar, Brisbane. 20/11/2014

Playing their first tour of Australia, NYC Thrash gods Prong played a power packed set. Supported by Wooloongong boys Segression, and 1.1.1.-The Band from Ipswich, Thursday night in Brisbane would never be the same.

Moonsorrow, Crimfall @ Virgin Oil Co. (Helsinki), 13 Sep 2014

For the first time since 2012, Moonsorrow played their home crowd in Helsinki and days later words are still failing me when I attempt to describe the night. The longest set ever, fans from all over the world, and the long brilliance of Tulimyrsky. 1065: Aika was played for the first time in Finland. It was also the first time a lot of people saw Crimfall live with their new female vocalist, Sara Strömmer.

Nummirock - Day One, June 19th 2014, Nummijärvi, Kauhajoki, Finland

Nummirock is held over the crucial Finnish Juhannas holiday. Metalheads from all over head to the serene lakeside venue to set up camp and cry havoc for the long weekend. It's bugs, beer and bonfires. It's sauna with new friends, sauna with old friends and naked drunks wandering the campsites. It's moshpits, metal and most importantly, it's Midsummer. The opening evening was filled with Deals Death (SWE), Profane Omen (FIN), Speedtrap (FIN) and Kaunis Kuolematon (FIN).

Carcass. The HiFi, Brisbane, 13/06/14

Godfathers of the grindcore movement Carcass played Brisbane after a long absence. The packed house was treated to a set encompassing the bands 30 odd years of devastating sonic bliss.

Impaled Nazarene and Ominous - PRKL Club, Helsinki, 31/05/14

Impaled Nazarene are credited as one of the pioneers of the Finnish Black Metal scene, and have never been far from controversy in their 24 years as a band. Last Saturday they brought their merciless black metal, with that contagious hint of grinding punk, to the PRKL club in Helsinki. Opening for them was the blackened death/thrash assault of fellow Finns, Ominous.
