Faytree is a 2 piece Hard Rock/Nu Metal band consisting of guitarist/vocalist Ashley Fayt and drummer MikaH Bahamut. The band was started in June of 2012. The members also make up 1/2 of PlanetRAWK.

Bury Me Breathing: Uncompromising, modern, progressive metal without being easily pigeon-holed by any one genre.

Punishing, progressively-minded metal, infused with psychedelic textures. The unique and multi-faceted art-metal style of this Atlanta quintet commands an integrated listening experience that appeals to forward-thinking listeners open to new forms of extreme music. Their latest EP Through Eyes Not Your Own utilizes an angular rhythmic assault backed by groove driven explorations, dual guitar harmonies, and counter melodies immersed in ambient colors. The EP showcases BURY ME BREATHING’S emphasis on strong songwriting to guide listeners through different states of mind, spawning new realizations for metal.


SkullsNBones.com had this to say about Harvester: “For being a relatively newer band, they put on their best performance yet and proved that they will be a force in the scene for years to come! One thing that is really special about this band is the sincere love for the music and fans in the Atlanta scene. They appreciate every opportunity they are given and it shows! If you love brutal breakdowns, heartfelt lyrics and a great live show, check out Harvester now!”


Anger Within’s fight for world domination, rages on! ANGER WITHIN – THRASH ‘TIL DEATH!

ANGER WITHIN broke into the “underground” tape trading scene with these demos. Each new tape emphasized a heavier sound and aggressively focused on themes few death metal bands dare to touch – world oppression, gang violence, environmental distress, loss of friendship – along with brutally outspoken lyrics challenging man’s inhumanity to man. Over the years, many people have described their sound as thought provoking, heavy, straight to the point…and ultimately, original metal/hardcore music, with political and socially concerned lyrics.

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!

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!

Pathfinder Promotions and 120 Tavern and Music Hall Present “Marietta Metal Invasion,” a night of hard-hitting, in-your-face Heavy Metal from Atlanta’s Rigorism with their special guests Paladin, and on tour out of Florida: Sons Of Ragnar and Lacerate!

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/
