Photo Album – Nile @ Fubar (St. Louis, Mo)

When it comes to Technical Death Metal, many bands come to mind, one that probably everyone can think of when the topic is brought up is South Carolina’s Nile. Nile has been going strong for over 20 years, and though they have had quite a few lineup changes in the past it doesn’t look like…

Photo Album: An Evening with Ne Obliviscaris (Fubar St. Louis,Mo)

Let’s face it, I have been looking forward to the day I would get to see Ne Obliviscaris live for like the past four years since discovering them. Last January we had conducted an interview with them on their upcoming album “Citadel” which at the time we sent the questions (November 2014) was yet to…

Band Interview: Sanctuary

Matt Albers In any other situation, sitting down to converse with someone who is wearing an unbuckled straightjacket may be considered out of the ordinary, perhaps even ill-advised. But within the metal community, when that individual is Warrel Dane, the situation could be considered unique, or only slightly odd from even the most unfamiliar perspective….

Photo Album: Sanctuary @ Fubar St. Louis, MO

Since the day this concert was announced what feels like almost a year ago, words could not express how excited I was. I have been a HUGE fan of Nevermore and while this is about Sanctuary, I had never gotten to see Nevermore live (they always cancelled).  Needless to say this was going to be…

Photo Album: Marty Friedman feat. Exmortus @ Fubar (St. Louis,MO)

Very seldom is there a tour that comes around with just TWO acts and no local bands are added to the bill. Even more seldom is it that the opening act is just as amazing live as the headlining act! Well Saturday’s show of Marty Friedman  featuring opening act Exmortus of LA met both those…

Music Spotlight: Dreadnought – Utopia (2013)

So, St. Louis while most of you were out enjoying the outdoor party that was Incubus and Deftones. . reliving your childhood (we were there too, don’t be ashamed). We metal heads missed out in a pretty epic underground Post Black Metal show by Denver, Colorado’s Dreadnought at Fubar St. Louis! We weren’t really familiar…

Band Interview: Holy Grail

Matt Albers Musical styles, sounds, and their corresponding scenes hardly ever remain consistent and untouched. New trends come and old trends go. Bands fixed into a specific genre lucky enough to maintain a strong fan base don’t have to consider breaking up or risk some kind of musical expansion or experimentation in order to continue. But just as new styles are…

Photo Album: Holy Grail live @ Fubar (St. Louis, MO)

It’s not very often that I would replace the actual headliners name with a different band, however on this occasion I find it appropriate as I didn’t photograph the headlining act. I really had no plans to as I am not a huge fan of Wednesday 13, however I would have stuck around and photographed…

Band Interview: Byzantine

Matt Albers For music fans, there are few experiences more impactful than discovering a band. Like all discoveries, it can feel even more important and memorable when they are found in an unlikely place of origin. On the opposite end, few things are can be harder for music fans to take than when a favorite…
