Last weekend i was asked to photograph the lads from metal band "Balls deep" at The Rigger live music venue in Newcastle,The show marked the end of "The Thousand Nights Tour" which has taken the band all over the UK.
Ive followed these guys around since they started and have had the privilege of photographing the artwork for both of their albums covers/inlays and promo shots.
The gig was mayhem,i had hardly any room to move and photograph as the floor was full of BD follows ready to feed off the energy these guys produce live.The set was the best I've ever heard or seen them! the crowd chanted the bands name after every song in a sort of military fashion which was absolutely awesome to hear.
The transition form local well known metal band heroes has far surpassed them when they played Bloodstock last year and again caused mayhem,but from the outside they come across as a professional live metal band with killer riffs and groves with hard bass runs and ripping vocals giving them the band "Balls deep" a sound not found anywhere else.
A band clearly in need of a bigger venues to cope with the carnage they cause in the pit!
