3 Metal Bands To Keep Your Eye On - Metal4Africa SummerFest'18


I have been so stoked to do another live shoot with South African new-wave heavy thrash metal band Deadline at this year's SummerFest'18 a well-organised 1-day Heavy Metal festival held bi-annually paired with their WinterFest'18 event.

  • You can find my post on the shoot I did with Deadline last year... here.

This time around the venue at Metronome Events in Brackenfell's Industrial zone, Cape Town was nothing short of perfect for the type of event & the bands, stalls, food, as well as the bands themselves were epic. Well done to the organisers!


Once again, I really enjoyed shooting with the guys from Deadline. They're normally based in Pretoria, so it was great to catch-up with them in Cape Town.

  • You can find Deadline's latest album "Black Wolf City" on Bandcamp.

Two other local bands which stood out me include With Dawn and Treehouse Burning.

Here are some more of my shots below (click on each image to see it full view) ...and be sure to catch up with all three bands on Facebook.

With Dawn

"Each song progressively ebbs and flows through the spectrum of human emotion which, ultimately, brings forth a resounding feeling of hope - that little glimmer of light - that only a new day can offer... a day with the potential to be the most important one of your life... a day that starts with dawn."

Treehouse Burning

"Metalcore band from Cape Town, South Africa."
