Even though I wanted to see just how brutal a performance Cannibal Corpse would put on at House Of Blues, I was really interested to see opening thrash band Skeletonwitch.

Hailing from Athens, Ohio, I’ve seen these guys play a couple dive bars a few years ago in my hometown Columbus. They’ve since moved up to bigger touring acts, and are making headway in the “thrash metal revival” genre.

And dammit, their name alone kicks ass.

Photographer’s Notes: I got to bust out my brand new 100mm f2 lens for some long shots both from the photo pit and crowd perimeter. I was disappointed that the balconies were closed off for this show, but I managed to grab some cool shots over heads. I gotta say I love the bokeh on this lens more than most I’ve seen! It really pops the subject off the background, cluttered with lights and speakers and other distractions.

And the wide f2 aperture is a godsend, considering with the shutter speed/focal length rule of thumb, 100mm on a cropped body needs to be shot at 160th/second or faster. No easy task in concert photography.
