The members of Mastodon are no strangers to Birmingham, Alabama for a variety of reasons, including personal, so their performance on May 14th at the Birmingham-Jefferson Civic Center Concert Hall was a bit of a homecoming for the band. Mastodon has performed in front of Birmingham corwds numerous times, but this particular performance was just as hard and as intense as all the others. As a result, everyone in attendance was more than entertained by the band's hard rock and metal abilities.
I've photographed Mastodon numerous times over the years, and they have definitely become a favorite of mine to document. The band's lighting and production compliments the heavy riffs and rock and roll swagger that is on display. Mastodon is a seasoned band that knows the ins and outs of giving the audience a hell of a heavy metal show to enjoy. I look forward to photographing them again and again in the future.
