Live: Godsized at Hard Rock Hell, Wales

Hello there!

I’ve just returned from an action packed adventure with Godsized!

They were booked to play the Hard Rock Hell festival in Glynwedd, Wales. A great event that is now in their eighth year!

An awful lot of ‘van time’ – overall I think it was a total of 16 hours actually on the road, there and back to South London – but there was a good vibe and many pit stops for food. These guys are like bottomless pits! And I’ve never attended an after show party that started at 3am before.

Godsized played an hour long set, and ended with a cover of Black Sabbath’s ‘War Pigs’. Considering they went on stage at 1.10am, they were full of energy and the crowd loved them. Here’s a small selection of the live pics. Check out the Godsized Facebook Page for more. I also shot some behind the scenes pics which might make an appearance somewhere soon.

Published Update

If you’re in the UK, you’re most likely enjoying your 4 day weekend. For me? There’s still some work involved, but that’s how I like it.

Here’s an update of my work in the press. Very happy to have shot a Godsized poster for their latest trip to Germany. The shoot, was at times, beyond hilarious! I must share some of the out-take pics with you all. The poster is currently printed and sold at A2 size. There’s also postcard sized stickers available.

Then there’s the pic spread for Terrorizer Magazine feature ‘Hard of Hearing’, with Killswitch Engage and Trivium just before their show in London. You can see from the pics it was also rather entertaining when the photo shoot part gets mentioned!

Various live and random pics of Therion, Arcturus, Iced Earth, Orange Goblin, Matt Harvey (eating a dog called Widget?!) and Killswitch Engage beating up the Terrorizer Features Editor – Tom – with the help of Trivium (Adam D pulling Tom’s hair is just brilliant, as he asked him first if he could do it!)

The Crowbar (with support from Dripback and Hang the Bastard) show was immense with pics printed in Issue 247 of Terrorizer.

New Godsized Promos

Godsized recruited a new guitarist back in September, and I was called in to do some promo shots at their rehearsal space in South London.

Here’s a few sample images

The pictures feature on their Social Media pages and also on their newly launched Official Website. One of the images from this shoot has been used to create a poster for a giveaway competition on their Facebook Page.

I do have many out-takes from the number of shoots i’ve done with the guys over the years, one day I will have to share them!

Godsized – Flight & Survive

Godsized, like most bands, have their fair share of good and bad things that happen. Recently they were invited to play for the US Troops at RAF Lakenheath. This was definitely one of those good things!

Not only did the guys get to entertain a great crowd, but also have a delicious American dinner AND a tour of the F15 aircraft. A real honour!

Due to the restricted nature of military aircraft, we were only allowed small cameras and phones in to take pictures. I couldn’t be pedantic about my iPhone photos – not with an opportunity like this to share with you all, so they aren’t the best quality.

Gav sits in the Pilots seat & Glen was the only one to brave the internal steps to the aircraft.

Chuck, Aaron & J. Scott gave us the tour and talked about different scenarios that they face in the air force, the missiles and bombs that were on display in the hangar and parts of the aircraft.

Beautiful isn’t it?!

Kav summed the tour up perfectly. It was so serene and still while we were there – with just the low buzzing of the lights in the hangar, but then you imagine the complete carnage that comes from everything in that building when it’s in full use. Incredible.

Here we all are, happy and ready for dinner and the show. Thank you guys for the awesome time and your hospitality!
