On Saturday, June 22nd, Pig Destroyer and Black Anvil brought their corresponding brands of throat-shredding vocals, neck-snapping riffs and gut-punching blast beats to the House of Independents in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Sick Shit, Replicant and Bandit joined them in the extreme-metal assault, which left attendees exhausted and exhilarated. Photographer Mark Valentino was there to catch all the action — check out some of his standout shots below.
