Support Local... Metal

 

Excited as all hell, I bulldozed my way straight through the pit and planted myself up front & center for the local opening metal acts who opened for As Blood Runs Black last week at Hawaiian Brian's.

Although I missed Corrupt Absolute's opening set, I got there just in time to see one of my favorites, Reverie, who I've been going on and on about for the last couple of weeks. My accolades for this Hawaii metal band won't end anytime soon. I'm all about supporting the local scene and have even decided to follow them around as my own personal photo project.

I was surprised to see the new reincarnation of local metalcore band, Phoenix Rose take the stage that night as well. Although, I made the executive decision to sit out on the next band, Nesta. Sometimes it's just not worth getting a ninja kick to the back of the head from their fans for the shot.
