Fear Factory at the Masquerade
Fear Factory destroyed the Masquerade on September 4th with an amazing set. Fear Factory was one of the first bands to pioneer industrial metal. It was great to see them back in Atlanta after a long absence. Fear Factory is on tour promoting their new album Genexas, which lead singer Burton made sure we pronounced correctly (ha). Their show was great and I found myself singing along while I took pictures of the band. The only thing I didn’t like was the fact I could hardly SEE the band. Once again the Masquerade didn’t bother to turn up the stage lights for the bands. This of course makes it very hard to photograph. Nonetheless, I still really enjoyed watching this band play some of my favorite tunes live like Shock, Edgecrusher, Damaged, and Demanufacture!
2015 Rockstar Mayhem Fest
The 2015 Rockstar Mayhem Fest visited Atlanta on July 26th, with amazing bands like WhiteChapel, and Slayer!
When I walked into Aaron’s Amphitheater at Lakewood it was like a ghost town. In past years, the Mayhem Fest is usually packed with people, but this year was different. The entrance I walked into had no venders, no food venders, and no people hanging out between band sets. I walked clear across to the other side of the venue to find a much smaller side stage than the previous years.
After seeing, maybe a 1000+ people watching the side stage bands, I knew the Rockstar Mayhem was coming to an end. Also, the beloved Metal Mulisha motorcycle stunt riders were not present at this year’s Mayhem Fest. As for the bands, some of them just were not for me, while a few were amazing to see perform. It was a sad sight to see the Rockstar Mayhem Fest scaled down to almost nothing, but I still had a good time taking pictures.
Enjoy the pictures for the last Rockstar Mayhem Fest. Hopefully, some brave soul will pick up the torch and revive the festival!

Rigorism formed in 2012 setting out to make music that doesn’t have a million genres, Metal is what is written, played and the adrenaline at a live show is definitely a must see. Strong vocals, powerful riffs, odd syncopated bass and drums make up RIGORISM \m/
