HammerFall from Gothenburg, Sweden, rockin’ out at the Getaway Rock Festival. In support of the new album “Infected” the band has supported quite a few festival throughout the summer and has announced a European tour. Unfortunately no photos of the drummer, Anders. The stage was to high. He is by the way one of funniest persons to hang out with… totally wild.

GRAVEYARD & MARDUK

Rikard Edlund is on fiiiiire… or so it seems. Good picture, bad picture? Well… I thought it was cool.
Graveyard was formed in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2006 and have released two albums. Graveyard (2007) and Hisingen Blues (2011) I only saw three songs of this Psychedelic, blues rockin’ band and then I had to run off to the next stage and take photos. And this was one of the things that really sucked on this festival. Bands overlapping each other and starting at the same time. Hm… If the band is good and amusing, I for one likes to stay and see at least half the concert.

Same procedure with Black Metal band Marduk. Only saw the few songs that I was allowed to take photos in the photo pit. Singer Mortuus looks like cave man or indian… pretty cool!

I have seen them quite a few times and they certainly are an entertaining band to watch. Never a dull moment really. Kick-ass sleaze rock’n’roll. Great band and nice fellows aswell. Kicked off with the song Sadistic Girls and took off with the smashing hit single “We Don’t celebrate Sundays anymore”.


My mouth on Adde’s drum kit he he he he cool  \m/

Can you have a better time than hanging out with good friends, fabulous music and a nice cold beer?

A little bit of Kreator. Trash metal band from Essen, Germany. The band is currently working on new material for a thirteenth studio album, which is due for release in 2012. Can’t tell you much about the gig… had to run with my camera to another stage.

Alice is Alice!

Always a pleasure to see him and his band. Although I did miss my friend Keri Kelli on the guitar on stage with him : (

Hanging out with Sanna Stenvall. Beautiful voice on Bandit radio.
You folks in Sweden do tune in every day, right?

The NEVERDIES were the winners of radio competition “Bandit Unsigned 2010” and landed themselves a contract with Warner Music. They are hitting the stages here and there.

A late congratulations are in order!

Alice Cooper in Västerås, Sweden

Posted in Live Photography, Live Shows, Personal, Savage Beauty Photography with tags , , , , , , , on December 15, 2009 by Tallee Savage

Matt and I drove to Västerås to meet up with Keri Kelli. We decided to get there early and show up at the in-store appearance where they were signing albums. It was him and Chuck Garric from Alice Cooper, Conny Bloom and Andy Christell from Electric Boys and Ryan Roxie & Anton Körberg from Roxie 77.

When they were done we took Keri to a restaurant to eat,  have a couple of beers before the gig and catch up on the latest.

I have been friends with Keri ever since 1988. I was living in Huntington Beach and so was Keri. We used to hang out with mutual friends. He was only 16 but a talented guitar player even back then. Over the years he has been in several bands; Slash’s Snakepit (Also featuring Slash from Guns N Roses), Skid Row, Vince Neil Band, Ratt, Warrant, L.A. Guns, Pretty Boy Floyd, Adler’s Appetite, Dad’s Porno Mag, The Newlydeads, Love/Hate, Saints of the Underground, Phucket, Alice Cooper & Liberty & Justice.

A very good friend and a total sweetheart. On his webbpage you can find out more about him. Keri has also just opened “Aces & Ales” restaurant and craft beer bar in Las Vegas, Nevada. So that should be a killer place to visit : D

Electric Boys in Västerås

Posted in Live Photography, Personal with tags , , , , , , , , on December 15, 2009 by Tallee Savage

I saw Electric Boys in the beginning of the 90’s. Funk-O-Metal Carpet Ride was a big succes. They split up for several years, Conny and Andy joined Hanoi Rocks. But now they reunited the band with all original members and I am glad to see these boys back toghether again.
