Agnostic Front

Agnostic Front is an American hardcore punk band from New York, founded in 1980. They laid the foundation for the hardcore genre, New York branch, and pioneered crossover thrash, the style of combining hard punk with metal.

The band ranks among the most prominent representatives of specific New York hardcore alongside Sick of it All and Madball (Madball’s singer Freddy Cricien is the brother of Agnostic Front’s singer Roger Miret).

Agnostic Front has gone through a number of members in all positions and at the end of 1992 the band broke up. They resumed their activities in May 1996. Since their inception they have released 11 studio albums, 1 compilation, 5 EPs, 4 live albums and 3 DVDs.

I took the pictures of Agnostic Front during their live show in Starlite Room in downtown Edmonton on May 11, 2005.

3 Inches of Blood

At the time when true metal was being pushed aside by all kinds of nu metal genre, 3 Inches Of Blood hit the eardrums of guitar-powered music fans with old school heavy metal.

Hailing out of Vancouver in British Colombia, Canada, 3 Inches of Blood took all that made metal great in the 1980’s and brought it back to life through the early 2000’s.

3 Inches of Blood continued to play until 2015, when they announced they would be disbanding after two final shows in their hometown.

I took the pictures of 3 Inches of Blood during their live show at Red’s in West Edmonton Mall on April 18, 2005.
