Suicide Silence did their thang at Mayhem Festival in Toronto; I was stoked to hear them live with Eddie fronting the band. These guys know how to rock out, and they can get a crowd going wild.

On July 29, 2014 the Summer Slaughter Tour came to the State Theatre located in St. Petersburg, Florida. Coincidentally, this year's headliners were local boys, Morbid Angel. With 30 years on their resume, they've helped to create and redefine the foundations of death metal as we know it. That night, song after song, (including "Rapture," "Where The Slime Lives" and "Existo Vulgoré") they crushed the rest of the fest's line up which included bands of the caliber of Dying Fetus and Origin, to name a few.

I haven't seen Emmure in nearly a decade, I was pumped to be able to see their set and shoot it. A huge crowd was waiting before their set even began, and the photo pit filled up fast. Emmure put on an amazing show; these dudes have amazing stage presence. I still don't know how Frankie was able to wear that windbreaker and long-johns without passing out from the heat.

With so many bands, it's hard to digest Warp Tour in just one day. It was a constant battle running from stage to stage, on a very warm and sunny day, capturing new acts like Unlocking The Truth, a Brooklyn-based trio that just signed a Sony record deal, or more seasoned bands like super-entertaining metalcore grops, Dangerkids and Beartooth. The mostly teen crowd was super-pumped through the hot day as there was crowdsurfing and moshing at every turn. The NY-based, female fronted Blackbird played the Shiragirl stage and hometown fav, Charetta, played on the Ernie Ball stage. I was also able to catch legendary pop band Bowling For Soup and a personal favorite, Real Friends, who played a solid 20 min set. Scranton-based Gothic metal band Motionless in White had a huge crowd by their set while Falling in Reverse closed the show just before 9pm not allowing photographers in the pit.

As the opener on Motley Crue's Final Tour, Alice Cooper and his band performed a set of greatest hits to an enthusiastic Southern California crowd. The three-guitar attack of Nita Strauss (who recently replaced Orianthi Panagaris), Ryan Roxie and Tommy Henriksen is sterling. With a lavish stage production (boa constrictor, Dwight Fry straight-jacket, creepy-looking dolls, etc.), and a killer sound, Alice Cooper gave Irvine a show that arguably upstaged the headlining act.

Sabaton's showmanship won the crowd straight away. Fans sang along while singer Joakim Brodén's antics and ear-to-ear smile energized the audience as the band worked the stage, pulling out all the stops.

Iced Earth opened with "Plagues of Babylon". After its ominous, building intro, guitarists Jon Scaffer and Troy Seele virtually shook the audience by the scruff of the neck while drummer Jon Dette battered the room with rhythmic mayhem. Vocalist Stu Block manned the microphone with authority, frequently belting out high-register screams reminiscent of Rob Halford (Judas Priest). The moving "If I Could See You" from Plagues of Babylon provided contrast in the heavy set. "Boiling Point" followed, putting the wicked, almost foreboding vibe back into the air.

It was just what the doctor ordered when Ted Nugent and his band of Nigerian Rebels (Derek St. Holmes, guitar and vocals; "Wild" Mick Brown, drums; Greg Smith, bass) played the City National Grove of Anaheim. Supporting the recently released album Shutup & Jam, Nuge's setlist included a few new songs and several of his smash hits. The guitar god, as usual, showed no restraint of tongue between songs, expressing contempt for U.S. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and big government. Some of us don't give a shit about Ted's political views or what he shoots with his crossbow or sidearm. We just want to hear that Gibson Byrdland sing. Shut up and jam, Ted!

Probably the most anticipated act playing this year's Mayhem Festival is Body Count. The Los Angeles band, fronted by Ice-T, played some old favorites and a few songs off the recently-released Manslaughter album.

Showing off new vocalist Eddie Hermida, Suicide Silence gave the crowd an arresting performance in the desert heat. No stranger to Mayhem, the Southern California deathcore band was welcomed by the multitude who came to hear the heavy shit.

If you've seen Every Time I Die before, you know it's not a band to miss - they are tight as hell and put on a crazy show for their fans. This is a band that brings it all, every time they play!

I haven't seen Terror in nearly 10 years so I was super-pumped when my interviews ended with just enough time for me to hustle to the Monster Energy stage, at Warped Tour's Toronto stop, to get some awesome shots and see a band I've listened to for years. These guys know how to get a crowd going, and they didn't care much for the signs on each stage that discourage moshing, no one in the audience seemed to care much either as they quickly formed a circle pit.

Death metal veterans Cannibal Corpse performed a short, but impressive set during the Southern California kickoff date for Mayhem.

The Maine's set on the Warhead Stage at Warped Tour's Toronto stop, happened to be at the point in my day when I had about 10 minutes for photos before running to the media room to do back to back interviews, before running out again to check out Terror (stay tuned for the photo gallery).

We Are The In Crowd brought it to Vans Warped tour in Toronto on July 4th. We Are The In Crowd hit up the Warhead Stage and drew a huge crowd that they had moving in no time. These guys rocked out hard on a gorgeous, sunny day. I'm stoked to have had the chance to shoot We Are The In Crowd, they have an amazing stage presence that gets everyone in the crowd going.

K.Flay took the Boat Port stage at Toronto's Warped Tour this July 4th. She's coming up big in a genre dominated by men. Her tunes will make you think with their pensive mood, but her beats will make you dance your troubles away. K.Flay was a great set to start of my festival, she got me moving and grooving as I ran from stage to stage during the rest of the festival.

Sometimes a band comes along and breaks all the rules. Steel Panther is one of those bands.
