Band Interview: Paul Delaney of Black Anvil

For the past year or so I have been fascinated with the New York band, Black Anvil. Maybe due to my growing love of Black Metal, so I am always scrounging to see what is hidden in the shadows. Or, possibly because in the American Underground Black Metal scene, they are one of the few…

Photo Gallery: Ektomorf

I have been listening to Hungary’s Ektomorf for a long time. Ever since I first came across their Sepultura-esque sound about 8 years ago or so,  I have been hooked. Dying to see them perform, I thought it’d take a once-in-a-billion-years type event to bring Ektomorf to our fair city of St. Louis. However, one…

Photo Gallery: Gost & Dance With The Dead

Occasionally we at Damnation like to branch out of our musical norms and into something, well “different.” I use the quotes loosely as the two artists I watched Sunday evening definitely were influenced by some sort of metal, be it Black or Thrash in variety. First up was local electronic act Giant Monsters on the…

Photo Album: Wolves in the Throne Room at Delmar Hall

When Wolves in the Throne Room announced a show at Delmar Hall, we couldn’t have been more ecstatic. Having wanted to see them for years, our time finally came, and it was everything we could have imagined. Pillorian, featuring members of Agalloch started the show with full force creating the most evil sound Delmar Hall…

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…
