Lacuna Coil
14th November 2016 – Newcastle Riverside

Lacuna Coil have evaded my radar for some time. I am, as they say, very late to the party. A friend recommended them to me, ‘you ‘REALLY’ need to photo these!’ I’m guilty of not following mainstream musical press, so this band came as a pleasant surprise to me. Visually the band intrigued me. My friend was correct, I NEED to photo these guys. Musically there is something much more appealing than the typical Kerrang cover stars, awaiting to be unraveled.

Arriving at the venue the place was packed out from early doors. Fans were there to see all the bands. Many fans adorning Lacuna t-shirts.

I walked away from the show buzzing, with a huge smile. That was easily one of the most fun shows I’ve ever photoed. I came away with a ridiculous amount of photos. Here’s a “small” selection of them. Lacuna Coil are one of the best live bands touring at the moment. Mark my words and go see them!!!

Genus Ordinis Dei – November 2016 – Newcastle Riverside

On tour with Lacuna Coil, first band on and setting the benchmark high for the evening. I arrived just as they launched into their first song. Bludgeoned by old school death metal, heavy, brutal and rather f*$king ace. They poured a lot of energy in to their performance and won a great reaction from the audience. A band to watch out for!!
