Sabaton and HammerFall performed to a soldout crowd at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland on November 3, 2019 and Hazy Eye Music Media’s contributor Abdullah Konte was there to capture some of the power metal madness. Yep, in this “Photo Flashback” we’re taking a trip down memory lane with Sabaton and HammerFall — and Abdullah is our guide.

Slipknot embarked on a six-week long tour around North America and brought Polish extreme black metal blasphemers Behemoth along with them for the ride. Knotfest Roadshow 2019 was without a doubt the summer’s heaviest-hitting metal festival tour. I was fortunate enough to be approved to photograph Behemoth and all three of the other bands on the lineup.

For the first Hazy Eye Music Media “Photo Flashback” we’ll be taking a trip down memory lane with Ministry. Whoa. Being a fan of Ministry, and most Al Jourgensen side projects since my teens, this is a show I will not soon forget. I was granted a photo pass and permission to photograph one of my childhood musical heroes. Hard to forget that. It only took about 3 or 4 years of requesting photo passes. Hahahahaha! I can still recall the feeling of pure bliss and redemption I experienced during my time in the photo pit.
