Continuing with our photo coverage from the Amorphis and Dark Tranquillity tour brings us to the second opening act – Moonspell.

Here’s another case of, “I’ve heard of them, but haven’t seen them.” Describing themselves as, “Dark Metal“, Moonspell brought their brand of gothic metal to the stage and accentuated it with a look and feel that made me think of several centuries ago in the times of witch hunts mixed with a steampunk feel. We all know I have a taste for the dramatic and unique, so the imagery was right up my alley. While I did enjoy the imagery, dark stage lighting with hats and a face mask made for a very challenging shoot; but I was able to get some good shots of the band.

Moonspell will be on tour with Amorphis and Dark Tranquillity through mid-October.
