Interview: Johnny DeAngelis of Oni

I’m Chris… I’m with Damnation Magazine, and I’m here with John from ONI (“oh-knee”) Hello hello… And just witnessed an awesome show here at the Ready Room opening up for Devin Townsend… I guess, the first question would be, since you play Xylophone – which there’s not many people in the metal scene that do…

Photo Album: Anthrax @ The Pageant (STL, MO)

The moment this show was announced, let alone on my birthday of all days, I knew it was going to be a night to remember. I am not going to write much about the show other than if you were able to catch a date of this tour then you know you caught one diverse,…

Photo Gallery: Mastodon @ The Pageant

Way back in April, yea I know that wasn’t very long ago, I was fortunate enough to shoot the Mastodon, Eagles of Death Metal and Russian Circles at The Pageant. For those of you that don’t know, The Pageant is one of my favorite venues and Mastodon, well it has been a while since we’ve…

Photo Gallery: Gorguts @ Fubar (St. Louis, Mo)

Hello ladies and germs, it has been a while since I, Nick, have posted anything on the page. Things have been pretty crazy, my fiance and I had to move a bit sooner than we anticipated into a new apartment, due to a shitty landlord. That caused me to get a little backed up on…

May 15, 2017 – The Pageant, St. Louis: Headliner Coheed and Cambria, touring with The Dear Hunter, finished off their fifth to last stop on the “Neverender GAIBSIV” tour for a sold-out show at the Pageant.

Photo Gallery: The Damned at Delmar Hall

Getting to see The Damned play at Delmar Hall on their 40th anniversary tour was nothing short of spectacular. While I was not as familiar with their music, other than what my fiancé had played for me over the years, she on the other hand was in punk rock heaven and giddy as a school…

Photo Album: The Flaming Lips @ The Pageant

For years I have been dying to see The Flaming Lips perform, as I had always heard wonderful things about their live show. So when I was messaged by Flaming Lips’ PR asking if I would like to photograph the show, you better believe I jumped all over that chance! The Pageant is and always…

Photo Gallery: Alcest @ The Ready Room (STL,Mo)

When it comes to St. Louis, underground metal shows can be few and far between. When I first found out that French act Alcest was going to be playing at the Ready Room in January, I thought I was dreaming. As the day grew closer and the show was still on the Ready Room website,…

Photo Album: Neal Morse Band @ Delmar Hall

It’s not very often that we get to cover a once in a lifetime event like we did with the Neal Morse Band playing their Similitude of a Dream album in its entirety at St. Louis’ Delmar Hall. This show was announced a few months back and immediately we knew it would be one not…

Photo Gallery: Full Terror Assault II

Three days of Metal, Booze, Camping and Extreme Heat. And you know what, we would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Full Terror Assault II went off without a hitch, well almost. Nothing wrong with the fest or anything, no it was more mishaps on our own accord; Missing tent poles and what…

Photo Gallery: Black Crown Initiate

Early last month, Pennsylvania’s Black Crown Initiate graced us with their presence after nearly two years since their last time here. To say the show was nothing short of spectacular would be and understatement. The local openers from start to finish really helped build the crowd up for the main attraction of BCI. Starting off…

Photo Gallery: Warped Tour 2016 (Nick’s Journey)

First of all I would love to point out that anytime there is an all day music festival (Warped Tour, Mayhem, Ozzfest) It is always on the hottest day EVER! This years Vans Warped Tour was no exception and the temperature pushed 100+ degrees, it was a fight to the finish and the sun was…
