While Sean did an interview with Scott from Skeletonwitch at their Toronto show on Saturday night that should be on Hellbound.ca sometime next week, I thought I’d post up some of the photos I shot of them at the show.
His self-deprecating nature, dark sarcastic/satirical humor, and brilliant wit lent to his lyrical genius and powerful onstage persona. He was fearlessly politically incorrect, and brutally honest. His bass playing and songwriting meshed the class of The Beatles with the bottom-heavy bombast of Black Sabbath. And of course his bass/baritone vocals were distinct, powerful and memorable. No one sounds like Type O Negative, and no one sounded like Peter Steele. And yet their influence upon heavy music is simply immeasurable.
