Venue: Manning Bar, Sydney-October 16, 2015–Abbath, Gods of Eden, and Ruins
Rock At Night was at Manning Bar for a dark, sinister and wicked fun of hearing Abbath, a metal band hailing from the land of vikings, Norway. With blinking strobes and heavy fog, the masked demons jumped and throbbed on guitar and drums to songs like “Battalions” and a crowd favorite “Fenrir Hunts.” Support for the evening was provided by Ruins, a black metal band hailing from Germany, who filled the theatre with diabolical growls to a heavy, primitive, throbbing tempo. Next, Gods of Eden from Sydney provided impressive metal-prog-rock guitar work with clean vocals to create melodic metal at its best. Overall, it was a craze-filled evening which the crowd will remember for a long time. Check out photo highlights below:

My entry into the photography world is purely an extension of my love affair with music.
My entry into the photography world is purely an extension of my love affair with music. The first event I ever attended was the Big Day Out festival in 1992 as a 13 year old, catching the likes of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Sonic Youth, Iggy Pop and local legends Tumbleweed. I caught the bug and just loved the indie scene. Some 20 years and countless gigs later I wanted to go from behind the barrier to behind the camera.
Photographic residencies Include:The Manning Bar, Max Watts house Of Music and the Roller Den. Each venue sees a huge variety of local and international artists come through the doors making each shoot a unique challenge.
