Fotoverslag | Primitive Man + Fvnerals - Le Botanique

Tuesday the 13th, considered to be the day of bad luck in Spain, didn’t stop me from taking on the challenge of shooting these two bands, Primitive man, and Fvnerals, despite the warning that it would be hard to get good shots.

Primitive man didn’t disappoint. The band played their doom metal for around 45 minutes without any kind of engagement with the audience, and vocalist Ethan Lee McCarthy filling up the room with his terrifying rage. Botanique did a tremendous job on the lightning that was perfectly fitting the music, to create a doom effect that would invite you to just close your eyes and listen. Needless to say, it was a headache for me to take good pictures.

Fvnerals was already a good appetizer on what the night would lead to. When I did my research on the band, I read that their music and album should be listened to in a dark room, as a whole, rather than a background music you could listen to in shuffle mode. But once the band started playing, what popped up in my mind was that it was the perfect background music for a horror movie, as a big fan of those that I am.
