Sakara Tour 2016 @ Espoo Metro Areena w/ Stam1na, Mokoma, Diablo

Thanks to my most awesome friend Laura at Muscialypse I got to shoot Sakara Tour in Espoo. I was damn happy to see Stam1na again, see finally Mokoma in closed venue, curious of Diablo and obivously happy as bag of baby ferrets that I can leave London even for a day. Sounds like a perfect combo for me! (not to mention that I got to stuff myself with karjalanpiirakat till I dropped and wash it down with lonkeros ❤️‍).

Under The Red Cloud Tour 2016: Amorphis, Poem, Textures

I've been hunting for Amorphis since a long time. For around three years for sure. Even more after I saw Vain Kuolemaa, because I plotted to get a toaster and ask Tomi for signing it. Nevertheless, I took an opportunity and went to see them in Alibi in Wrocław, when I was still having my Easter break in Poland. It was also nice to see some familiar faces and hang around with people. Also... damn, why didn't I catch them earlier when Tomi had dreadlocks? Headbanging with dreadlocks looks seriously badass!

PRONG, Steak Number Eight, Man.Machine.Industry at Alibi, Wrocław

So I came back home to Poland for Easter. Then friend called me if I could do pictures for her friends' band who was playing that night. I had a free evening that day, so why the hell not have some fun hanging out with friends? Not to mention all three bands were damn fun to photograph. Especially Steak Number Eight who suffer of case of even bigger stage crazies than Chris from Turbowolf. Seriously!

Von Hertzen Brothers, Messenger at Brooklyn Bowl, London

First time I heard about Von Hertzen Brothers was in the plane from Gdańsk to Turku, when I was traveling to Provinssi Festivaali, last year. I asked lady sitting next to me about directions how to get to a bus stop in Turku. As it turned out she was going there too. To see specifically VHB only. She spoke about them with such passion and praised so much, that I just had to see their show (And warned me about Ville Malja's shitty fashion sense. Gods bless you woman). But due to many unfortunate circumstances I couldn't make to their show. Just got a few shots from the crowd.


When I heard that they will perform in London, I decided that I have to redeem myself a bit and take some decent shots of those peeps.

I have a confession to make. A pretty long one.

Sabaton, Alestorm, Bloodbound at Manchester Academy 2016

So, my first concert covered on British soil! Soon it's gonna be a tradition that first gig I shoot every January/February is Sabaton & co. But what were my impressions from shooting a gig in UK?
