Photographer: Mattias Westfalk Site: http://www.mattiaswestfalk.com/ Based in: Tokyo ONE I’ve been shooting the underground heavy metal scene in Tokyo for many many years.

Rather than fill our Instagram feed with people’s bad selfies and what they cooked for bae (ok, I do follow this one though…), I love that Instagram has become an online gallery, where artists can curate collections of their work in a public space. Today I’d like to showcase a

Needless to say, this is somewhat unusual, especially on a Monday night in January. Upon my admission approximately 15 minutes later, it was quite easy to see why: I don’t believe I’ve never seen so many people packed into the Rickshaw so early.
On January 16th, 2015, Black Breath took their first steps onto Canadian soil. Many of us in the Great North were worried that the border pigs would stop them from coming through, but when our co-presenters Nothing is Heavy sent out word that they had made it over, we all breathed a black sigh of relief. It was one of the more packed nights I’ve been to at the Astoria…

The photographer Stacy Kranitz has explored this insane place and now we all can see what goes on there through her lens.
