Metal Concerts: A Visual Storytelling Adventure

Heavy metal, as much as any other music form, thrives in a live setting. I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard someone describe a band as “better live than on CD.” Metal just makes sense when you pair it with the bold, often ritualistic trappings of a live setting. I’m certain that each and every one of us can think back to a particular show that stands out to us and pick out a visual element that left a lasting impression on you. It may have been the way the lights silhouetted the band during a certain song. It may have been the masked chainsaw-wielding surgeon who seemingly threatened your well-being. It may have been the giant alien phallus that sprayed you with goo. Whatever it was, it suited the music perfectly and rooted itself in your memory.

In celebration of those live triumphs, I reached out to our little Facebook community and asked them to share with me some of their favorite pictures from metal shows they’ve attended. Note than none of these photos are professional. Many were shot on cell-phones at a sizable distance. Some of them are from house shows or intimate venues. All of them are important and tell a story of the music we love.

    • Simon “Djentcrusher” Phoenix

      They opened their set with Asphyxiation when I saw them live. Shit got serious real quick.

      • Tyree

        OH SHIT!

        • Scrimm

          I’m pissed I didn’t know they had a record shop in Cali not too far from where I was when I went last year.

  • Dr. Dubz

    Thanks to everyone who contributed photos!

    • Farty McPoopyCoalRoll

      Sadly, I lost my phone with concert pics years ago. Had ones from Iron Maiden, both Mago De Oz shows, Cynic, Gojira, and Sigur Ros (that one was tricky since the Chicago Theater has a zero tolerance thing about photos during shows. Same with the Craig Ferguson pics I had).

  • Well… I got to see GL play one time at Sam Ash from about 3 feet away. Not really a true concert – but it was dope! Check out this photo I snagged. I also my buddy and I got to meet him afterwards!

    • I talked to him before the show having no idea who he was. He was weird. He also was texting during the show

      • Tyree

        Poser.

        • At least I don’t text my friends while i’m on stage performing with my band

          • Tyree

            Hahaha! Did he do that? I forget sort of, but I think I vaguely remember.

      • Pagliacci is Kvlt O)))

        KEN Mode should have appeared out of nowhere like the Spanish Inquisition and kicked the phone out of his hand.

  • Tyree

    Dark Angel

    • Dr. Dubz

      I would love to see Dark Angel.

      • Tyree

        I bet dude. So good.

        • Dr. Dubz

          I think someone should do a Groundbreakers about them. They definitely set the bar for progressive thrash.

          • Simon “Djentcrusher” Phoenix

            As much as I love Dark Angel, I kinda feel either Toxik or Watchtower would be a better fit for a Groundbreakers article about a progressive thrash band.

          • Dr. Dubz

            You’re the man for the job, SP.

          • CT-12

            Just what I was thinking. “Progressive” doesn’t really apply to well with Dark Angel in my opinion. Either way, a Dark Angel article would be rad.

          • Dr. Dubz

            I think Time Does Not Heal fits the bill nicely, but maybe not the early stuff as much.

          • Simon “Djentcrusher” Phoenix

            Don’t get it twisted. “Time…” in particular has a ton of interesting and unique riffs. It’s just that Dark Angel are not the first band that comes to mind when I think Progressive thrash.

          • Dr. Dubz

            No twisting here. I genuinely forgot when that album came out. Didn’t remember ’91.

          • CT-12

            I don’t have that album so I couldn’t say, but I do agree that Dark Angel has some pretty complicated riffs, but as Simon referenced, not the first band I think of as prog thrash.

    • Simon “Djentcrusher” Phoenix

      HELL YES.

  • There are good photos here. I liked all!

          I’m still yet to hear that story.

      • I kissed the security guard on the right on the cheek after crowd surfing for Entrails

        • Was the before or after he kicked you out of the show? I am assuming before…

        • Scrimm

          I was about 3 feet away all three times I saw them.

      • Enema For The Free World

        Can’t answer for Tairi, but I saw them not too long ago as well (As usual I didn’t take photos), but they were boring as heck, which I actually think I havce mentioned previously.

        • Yup. I saw the Wacken live videos and they’re very static.

          I still would see them/10 because Link reasons.

        Good band live (saw them with Death To All).

    • Simon “Djentcrusher” Phoenix

      Them and Portal at the new Knitting Factory about a year before they released Colored Sands is still one of the best shows I’ve ever been to. Period.

      • Tyree

        Seeing Portal this year. Stoked!

  • Tyree

    My Dying Bride

    • That’s interesting. How they are live?

      • Tyree

        Great.

    • Keegan Lavern Still

      Totes jelly right now.

  • I have never taken a picture of any of the bands I’ve seen live. Stupid cellphone camera.

  • Guacamole Jim

    It’s interesting for me to look at all these pictures back to back. I see in some of them some really cool intimate moments captured, but in most of them (and this is no slight towards the photographers!) it feels stale and overdone.

    I guess my question here is: is the typical metal live format being overdone? The dim-ish lights, the extra-serious vibe, the entire format — it seems kinda stale and old. I know we’ve discussed this sort of stuff before, but have we ever asked if the entire concert format as we know it is even really worth continuing? How could we go about rehauling it?

    • CT-12

      Starting shows off at a reasonable fucking time so I’m not dog tired when I go to work the next day

      • BACKED

      • Dr. Dubz

        Backed. Headliners always go on super late here because our local promoters have to book six awful local bands for every gig.

        • Enema For The Free World

          Why so many? Here three is usually the max, also on weekdays gigs are scarce ’cause regardless of the time, no one will attend them.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Six may have been a slight exaggeration, but four on a weekday gig isn’t uncommon.

          • Enema For The Free World

            That is still much, the three is hereparts never on a weekday. (srs, I just read an interview about a band going to tour China ’cause it’s monetarily more secure/better than doing gigs in Finland on weekdays)

          • Dr. Dubz

            It sucks, dude. I usually just hang out in the bar while the locals play, but now that I pretty much always go to shows alone, that’s lame, and I hate getting home so late reeking of smoke.

          • Enema For The Free World

            I can imagine, most o’ my shows I go to with a friend and I can get home early enough to go with a bus. Speaking of which, recently the difference of willingness to travel long times to a show between European/’Murican people came up. How long does it take you to get home from an average show? You go by your own car? Bus? Foot?

          • Dr. Dubz

            If it’s a local show, I can get there in ten minutes or less in my own car. I’ve traveled to other cities in Texas for bigger shows (6 to 8 hours), as well as Colorado (8 hours), but I typically only do that if I can crash with a friend.

          • Enema For The Free World

            Was just wondering ’cause I don’t drive so I usually have to go bu bus and have ended up walking home for some hours when it’s been too late.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Walking home after a gig sounds awful

          • Enema For The Free World

            Mostly it is, although if the gig was not very far (which they usually are, at least for a walking distance) and on my alcohol level. But it always takes the whole night, so it’s a little shitty if you’ve got work the next day.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Oof. No thanks.

          • Enema For The Free World

            #HomeAtSixAmMasterRace

          • You should carry a razor scooter.

          • Enema For The Free World

            Lol, I had one of those when I was a kid. Would actually be pretty wild scooting down to home in the middle of a night.

          • Weeeeeeeeeeee!

          • Scrimm

            Oh man could I tell you a wild getting home from a show story.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Go on

          • Scrimm

            It was 95-96 and the show was Megadeth, Flotsam and Jetsam. Korn and Fear Factory. On the way my friends car took a complete shit, His parents refused to give us a ride home if we didn’t go with them right them and we managed to get a cop to take us the rest of the way to the show and take our chances. We got there late and missed FF(damn) and Korn(hell yeas) and Megadeth pretty much sucked. After wards we wandered the gigantic parking lot trying to find a ride before these two older women told us they would take us. We got in their shitbox and quickly noticed that the floorboards of the back seat were filled with porn magazines and there was no doorhandles on the inside. the lady took off like a bat out of hell and almost hit about three people on the way out of the parking lot. After scaring us talking about all kinds of wierd devil shit and driving us through half the city they finally told us they couldn’t take us all the way and dropped us of in the middle of south Phoenix(worst gang area in the city). I wasn’t even really any closer to home just in a different direction. When we tried to call a taxi they kept hanging up on us before I finally got one to come out. the clerk at the store we were at wouldn’t even let us come inside. We pretty much hid behind the place until the cab finally showed sure we were going to be murdered at any second. The worst thing was we didn’t have enough money for the cab so we had to have him take us to a spot where we knew we could get away from him. I felt terrible about it but we didn’t really have any other option.

          • Enema For The Free World

            Fuck.

          • Scrimm

            Quite the adventure, But after the fact you’re kind of glad it happened. Unfortunately I lost that friend a few months ago.

          • Enema For The Free World

            Sorry for that. Shit always happens in piles.

        • CT-12

          Yeah dude, my buddy’s band is coming to my town and playing with Cormorant and I told him “for sure dude I’ll go”, then I saw it was a fucking Sunday and am now dreading the occasion. The venue I go to straight up lies about the time the show starts so they can get more heads in the door earlier and then have people buy beer in the meantime, so shows always get out at like 1, 2 in the morning.

    • Stanley

      Shows are toooooo loud. Turn the volume down and stop hiding behind distortion. Let us hear what you are playing and not have to wait to half way through the song to figure out what you are playing you numbnuts.

      • i have researched this in the past. one of the primary reasons is that drums are loud by nature, so the other members have to crank up their amps. another is that people are just so proud of their gear that they feel like it’s gotta be turned up to 11. another is that it gets people psyched, and therefore gets them to buy more alcohol.

        • Stanley

          I think the drums have a lot to do with it. You can tell the difference in the live setting where there is a pause with just guitars/vocals playing. That been said, all the drums are mic’ed up so TURN THE VOLUMN DOWN on the drums and then the other instruments can follow suit.

          EDIT: I don’t see the connection between volume and alcohol sales though.

        • tertius_decimus

          Drums at the shows are mic’d as well. Proof:

          • interesting. having seen this, drums could be un-mic’d and the other instruments’ amps could be turned down.

            who’s gonna go first??

  • I saw As I Lay Dying back in 2008 and snapped this picture. I was pretty cool because it was JUST at the right time – between strobe flashes. It was pretty cool!

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    No.

  • I missed this thread, oops. Here’s Solstafir at MDF 2014

    • Tyree

      Nice!

      • They were definitely one of the highlights of the fest for me. Unleashed and Candlemass were the best though <3

    • ooooooooh, dig them so much after a glorious Finn introduced me to them last year

  • ALSO, here is another dope photo I got of GL in 2012 at a Lynch Mob show. I really like this one.

  • I cannot count how many shows I’ve been to. Not once have I ever taken a photo. Some nice pics here though.

    • Dr. Dubz

      Why is that, out of curiosity? I don’t take as many as I used to, but I still like to snap one or two.

      • I can’t answer for Deuce but every concert pic I’ve ever taken has looked like dogshit. So… I just stopped trying.

        • Stanley

          They all look like dog shit, especially if you have an iPhone.

        • Tyree

          Well, when they have George Clarke in them, then yes.

      • Stanley

        I normally just take on or two pictures cuz memories and then just get back to watching the show.

        • Dr. Dubz

          Yup. Get my one or two for memory’s sake, then back to them feels.

          • Stanley

            And the bar.

          • Stanley

            Except at the Regency where it’s $16 for a beer.

      • Other than money and ID, I bring nothing else with me when I go. Guess I just like seeing and experiencing bands play and the thought never crossed my mind to take pics. I was probably too busy hanging with the Mosh Bros to do it.

        • Dr. Dubz

          I feel that. I actually always leave my wallet at home and just bring cash.

    • Scrimm

      I’m the same and now that I’m older I regret it. Hundreds of missed opportunities.

          I can’t wait till this year’s HCHF. Though I wonder how it will go without Corey (RIP).

          • CT-12

            Same here man. Honestly not sure if they’ll go through with it without him, but I’m keeping my eyes open. That dude was such a nice fucking guy, R.I.P.

        • CT-12

          I know Joe took a picture of all of the TOH crew that were there right before or after GWAR, so that’s gotta be lingering on his phone or online somewhere

            Nice, Obvs, I recognized you. Matt looks different than his FB picture. Lief looks like he’s been having fun in the pit.

          • Tyree

    Some random pics of my band on tour.

    • Stanley

      Yup, I wouldn’t break into that van. Harms Way could learn something from Scab.

      • Tyree

        That’s my sick ride. Fucking fart box.

        • Stanley

          I can smell it from here.

    • Someone took some super seXXXy pics from a show my band did a few weeks ago. Not pictured: other members of the band. Fuck those guys.

      • Tyree

        Sexy for sure.

        • Pagliacci is Kvlt O)))

          I’d touch his beard.

      • That hoss looks heavy. Is that the case?

        • Heavier than fuck. I carried it and my pedal board about a mile by foot yesterday for 2 sxsw shows. My body is destroyed.

          • They have been blabbing about SXSW all week on NPR. I might to ask you if you guys were playing! How did it go???

            Our local poedunk news station even dig a report on SXSW… like somehow the festival is relavent in Dayton Ohio, lol.

          • Eh, shows were OK. It’s hard to stand out with 10,000 other bands. SXSW is a full on shit show and it gets more chaotic every year.

          • Yeah I thought they said there was 2400 bands playing? or something obnoxious

          • At least that many!

      • I WANNA SEE YOU GUISE LIVE!!

    • I WANNA SEE YOU GUISE LIVE

      • Enema For The Free World

        ^seconded, I wanna see Scab live.

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    Gorguts 2014.

    • Stanley

      Wasn’t impressed with Gorguts live. Boring live and too loud/distorted to even appreciate the music. Then Carcass come on and suddenly it’s all crystal clear.

      • Dr. Dubz

        I’ve read that the live sound is often turned down or just not given adequate attention for supporting bands.

        • Stanley

          Yeah. I understand the dynamics of the setup and there being no time to sound check etc., but that also goes to your point below about there being too many support bands. On this tour there was Replusion/Gorguts/BDM/Carcass. It’s just too many bands for a sound check so the support bands typically have crap sound. Also, I don’t know how true it us but I’ve heard that some headliners don’t let the support bands do a proper sound check as they want to make themselves sound better and not get blown off.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Wouldn’t surprise me. Honestly, unless it’s a fest, three bands is plenty for a tour.

        • Scrimm

          See any band opening for Six Feet Under for confirmation of that. I thought Gorguts was awesome live, though I lamented the absence of any old tunes.

      • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

        I enjoyed the sound they had at the show I was at, though in hindsight it was extremely loud and my right ear hasn’t been the same since. Carcass definitely had better sound, and were on fire that night.

    OT: I’m really digging Stocky’s band and I’m totally bummed that I didn’t make it to the show last night cuz legs.

    • I am not sure if you saw my question for you, but how did the race go?

      • Stanley

        I wrote a tome for you. Get with the program GL.

        (Maybe Disqus didn’t send you a notification).

        • Oh OK. I will try to find it. Thanks!

        • Sounds like a tough race man. The biggest thing I have experienced is that anything can happen. Even when you feel like you have trained you best and everything is going right there are so many things that can go wrong. Looks like you are moving forward though. Fine work either way!

          I love looking at splits. So much fun!

          • Stanley

            Marathons are still an complete unknown for me (except that it’s gonna hurt).

          • How many how you done?

          • Stanley

            5 plus 1 IM.

          • If you want shoot me an email at george.lynch.toilet@gmail.com and I can send you a write up on my methodology. It is nothing fancy – but after doing over 20 I am fairly confident in my execution. If you are able to benefit that would be great!

          • J.R.

            “Even when you feel like you have trained your best and everything is going right there are so many things that can go wrong”

            Man. way to make my worry even more about these tests all week.

    • Scrimm

      I am also bummed I couldn’t make the one out here. As much for a TOH meetup as anything, but also really likeing the band the more I listen.

      • i want to meet everybody!!! we have to find a fest where lots of people can make it. also, i can’t remember which part of the country you call home…

          Arizona. A TOH fest with all the bands would be a dream come true, but only if you promise not to call weed bad anymore.

          • well OK. it seems like a lot of flushers are in the south! this is good, i’d make a trip

          • Scrimm

            It would be incredible.

          We need a Toilet-con.

        • J.R.

          GL has land somewhere if I am remembering who all of you are correctly. Pretty centrally located (as in, not in Maine). We all need to TP his house and set our Toilets down and plunder his land.

          We could record a SCAB album while there.

          • ever heard of a band recording all the fans chanting or screaming or something? SYL did it on “Alien”. SCAB could record the “toilet choir”, the sound of all us flushing at the same time

          • J.R.

            I’m thinking sitting around a campfire using Toilets as stools, roasting weenies, throwing some frisbee, just generally flushing our sorrows and loving life, as poser as that may be.

            I want a 21 Toilet salute at my funeral.

      • Stanley

        It’s pretty awesome. Heavy, technical, interesting and great vocals. How Stocky and sing and play this stuff at the same time is a wonder to me.

      I have pics from that tour but they all look like shit, unfortunately.

  • Fan (seriously though, I’ve never actually taken a picture at a show):

    SWEET!

    I got some to shares in I get home! Sitting here waiting for the teacher to come in with the Fluid Dynamics test. Remember Toilet, Pb-Pa = -rho g (zb-za) and int(dP) = -g(int[rho(z)dz])

    Non metal-related. The Thing acoustic concert, 2011. Best show ever.

  • tertius_decimus

    Tesseract, 2013. They suck live.

    • Stanley

      I thought they were alright. Nothing too exciting as far as stage presence goes, but the sound was great and I quite enjoyed it.

      • tertius_decimus

        They were playing like the slave doing the job he hates. No excitement, no energy, no nothing.

        • Stanley

          Bummer. Sounds like they were on a off day. It happens, but you wish it wouldn’t, at least not on the day that you’re going to the show.

          • tertius_decimus

            Given how few concerts we have here nowadays, it’s pretty frustrating. Every venue is like a holiday.

    I would have some good photos but as a rule, I always keep my cellphone in my pocket at shows.

    Eklipse, Delain, and Kamelot in august of 2013, I believe.
    Eklipse were interesting (and totally babes) but their music to me wasnt near as cool as their look / their instruments.
    Delain brought the teenage emos, which was..okay I guess. Their vocalist brought the Babe factor for their band, and the guitarist had this odd one-sleeve thing. Looked like a Fire Emblem Berserker. Music was rockin but the message didnt relate to me.
    Kamelot slew like none before. Tommy was amazing and the crowd made us worship them like the peasants we were. Look at Youngblood basking in our adoration. Pretty hyped for their new album.

  • J.R.

    Well I would share Amon Amarth / Sabaton stuff but I only took videos and I don’t want to go take a bunch of screenshots. Sabaton blitzkrieged us into the ground, only because Carolus Rex is the best song ever for conquering those before you. They let some 8 year old on stage and he got Joakim’s shades which was awesome.
    The audience was Jurmungandr to Amon Amarth’s Thor. That is all I have to say about that show. WHEN I AM DEAD, LAY ME IN A MOUND
