Infanteria’s 10 year anniversary with Wargrave at ROAR

Sat

This time last year I attended my first Infanteria show (which also happened to be their album launch) and it was epic. Since then I’ve become a big fan of the band and always enjoy being at their shows.

Sadly there wasn’t a great turnout for the 10th year anniversary (big congrats to them, by the way) show at the end of June, but that didn’t stop them from giving it their all, as they always do.

Here are some shots from the show.

Subject to Slaughter EP launch with Mezzanine Floor and Bulletscript at ROAR

Sat
17 June 2016

After the chilled gig I’d attended the night before, I relished the intensity and energy of Subject to Slaughter‘s EP launch at ROAR. I always get hair envy watching the band – seriously, they should have a Pantene endorsement or something (if they don’t already).

They were supported by PE band Mezzanine Floor (each member of this band had me doing a double take as they all appeared to be doppelgangers of random other people I know…totally bizarre but loads of fun spending their set figuring out who they each reminded me of…) and the ever-energetic Bulletscript.

Fear Factory (US), Boargazm and Ill System at the Assembly

Sat

Industrial metal legends Fear Factory performed a great show at the Assembly, in spite of the fact that guitarist Dino Cazares leg cast meant he had to sit for the whole performance. The band were supported by Ill System and the highly entertaining Boargazm (Who I was seeing for the first time).

Here are some shots from the night.

Magrudergrind (US), Peasant, Wildernessking & Overhex At Club Med

Fri

2016

Club Med is fast becoming my favourite Cape Town venue to shoot – it’s just perfect for punk and hardcore gigs and I always have a great time there. It’s also fast becoming the venue of choice for visiting internationals in the aforementioned genres. Friday the 10th’s show was a perfect example, as American hardcore trio Magrudergrind brought some real intensity to the local crowd, with support from Peasant, Wildernessking and Overhex (who made their debut that night).
