BIOLENCE’s “Violent Non Conformity” release party @ Metalpoint, 2017/09/15

This gallery contains 54 photos.

DESTROYERS OF ALL had been great the first time I’d seen them but they are much better now! Congrats for the evolution and also for making it to the finals – which everyone was expecting, anyway. The day before they … Continue reading

This gallery contains 60 photos.
