Yesteryear

Post by MS_39455 » Fri July 17th, 2020, 6:50 pm

Been talking a lot with friends and acquaintances recently about shows we've seen over the years. Much of the reminiscence is likely being fueled by the major lack of party time in front of a hazy stage as of late. I'm beginning to miss the beers, bangovers, and general Saturday night bull-shitery accompanied by a slovenly rag-tag of melody butchers and nocturnal acolytes way, way more than I thought I would. For the sake of a good laugh and hope for the party getting started again someday I've been digging through some photos of mostly local shows from years past. I've lived here since '05 and very rarely ever took photos while at a show, but I have a handful. Some of the images below were taken by others and shared with me. Nothing particularly stunning, but a lot of foggy good memories.

Post some of your own if want. Any show anywhere goes, but I'd love to see pics particularly from local venues past and present: 529, The Earl, Masquerade, PS Warehouse, Lenny's, Somber Reptile, C-11 Warehouse, 688, Metroplex, etc... let's see 'em.



Had some laughs recently talking about Horna at Swayze's. With Blood Stained Dusk, Legions of Astaroth, and Obscurum 11/13/08. All three photos taken and originally posted here by the long-lost BlackRoija.

↓Shatraug either feeling the fire or nodding off. Stepped over him in the parking lot passed out face-up feet from the steps of the shitty Horna rental RV afterwords.
Image

Vocalist at the time, Corvus, writhing on the floor like a drunk guy writhing on the floor. Will never forget this guy getting midnight sun Tampere alleyway drunk on Smirnoff Ice from the store next door. Broke every fucking bottle on the floor after pounding one after the other inside the venue. Launched himself off the stage into the "crowd."
Image





Some of my shitty terrible photos at Wonderoot, 7/22/11: Spewtilator, Living Decay, Tomb Stalker, Coffindust.
Image

Image

Image





More of my shitty foray into my brand new world of owning a smartphone. Sadistic Ritual below at Jack's with Disfigurement, Lectures on the Apocalypse, and Mangled 8/20/11.
Image

Fuckin terrible photo. This is essential what my vision is like this time on a Saturday anyway. Mangled.
Image





The real party was at 585 Wells Street, though. Photos by a certain Slovenian couple that lurked these shores for a while. Pivo, prosim. Battlemaster, Razormaze, Locusta, Oil Tanker, Spewtilator, and Living Decay 1/10/10. RIP PS Warehouse.

I'll post more as I come across them. I know you fuckers have some.

I'm in a similar boat in that I rarely take pictures of/at shows. I have a few more of various bands at various festivals I've attended (I suppose 'tourist' mode was activated?).

As for local gigs:

Metal Church @ Center Stage - 2017
Image

(part of) Church of Misery @ The Earl - 2013
Image

The Chasm (prior to them going on) @ The Loft - 2018
Image

Some ghost and a butthead at one random drunken Jacks night (this time with out any violence!)
Image

I still remember Nominon at PS Warehouse, the vocalist seemed very upset with me that I wasn't obeying his order to 'circle pit'. I think it was one of the earlier times MS_39455 and I decided to talk to each other at a show. And of course the infamous Swayze's bill with Dismember, Grave, Vital Remains etc.

unfortunately i too too often have subscribed to the "take only memories, leave only beer bottles" philosophy, but this is some excellent latem'at nalta historianism.

I don't think I'll ever forget Peter bitching about Italian Jeans or the person drinking spit off his crucifix.

the saliva-soaked crucifix was surely a sight to behold. don't remember the jeans but it seems about right.

I rarely take any photos of shows as well, and if I do they are usually when I am now of town. Still able to dig up way too many images, though. Here's some old highlights of some crowd photos.

Scion Rock Fest 2009. Probably one of the better bad ideas a corporate entity has come up with.

Image
Image
Image

Another Death Barn outtake (2011).
Image

Various events at Jack's in 2011. Most of these are credits to MetalFreak.

529
Post-MDF 2013 show , "ATL Deathfest," w/Abigail, Speedwolf, Cruciamentum, Anhedonist, etc.
Image
Infamous photo from Creative Loafing Atlanta Metal Issue

Image
Beeravore/Malformity (I was probably going to make fun of Craig) 2015
Image
Image
Image

Image

2016
Venom Inc. (Masq-Heaven)

Image
Image
Absu (basically just trying to get a photo of how it looked like "SEMEN" instead of "THE BASEMENT."
Image
Image
Hellgoat/Vimur release at the Drunken Unicorn

And one more more recent one at The Cody Fest (2017, The Loft):
