Testament: “Titans Of Creation” Album Review

You don’t earn a spot as one of The Big Four of thrash metal without showing a significant amount of muscle.

Spreading The Disease: Cabin Fever Is Here

Cabin fever is officially here. And I am fucking tired of being alone. Tired of being tired of being alone. FML.

Slayer: Live Photos from Tinley Park, IL!

Slayer!!! Where do I even start? One of the “Big Four” of thrash metal. Arguably the heaviest of the “Big Four”. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve even seen Slayer. 10? 15? 20? I can’t remember. All I remember is a great show with an absolutely insane crowd every time. When I heard that Slayer were going to

Anthrax: Live Photos from Tinley Park, IL!

The third band on the bill for Slayer’s final world tour is Anthrax. They are one of my favorite bands to shoot, especially Joey and Frank – they’re so active on stage that I (almost) always get cool shots of them.

Behemoth: Live Photos from Tinley Park, IL!

Everyone knows that Slayer has announced their “final” tour. When I saw the lineup, I couldn’t just go as a fan, I had to go there to cover the event! Anthrax, Behemoth, Testament, Lamb of God, and Slayer?! I wish more tours would come around like this one!! The only “unfortunate” (and I’m using that word very loosely) thing about
