On Thursday, April 4th, the epic, uncompromising lineup of YOB, Voivod and Amenra swung through Brooklyn, bringing the wrath of merciless gods upon Greenpoint venue Warsaw. All three bands played in support of excellent, consciousness-expanding albums: 2018's Our Raw Heart, the same year's The Wake; and 2017's Mass VI, respectively. Sweat and blood were spilled, riffs were worshipped, perogies were consumed. Photographer Nathaniel Shannon was there to catch all the transcendent action — see some of his standout shots below.
