This is where I’ve been adding a weekly Revelator photo blog gallery featuring my favorite shots from concert I’ve photographed. However due to some unfortunate, and dishonest bands I’ve not included any photos this week. I’ve chosen not to mention the parties who’ve use my photos and edited them for their own personal promo on their social media accounts. It has caused a short hiatus of this weekly insert.

Saint Asonia:

Rich Beddoe the drummer from the band Saint Asonia joins me to discuss the band’s debut self titled album and tour starting this August, 14th. Rich talks about the bands unique formation featuring former Three Days grace singer Adam Gontier + members of Staind and Eye Empire. The quartets offer a really impressive discography as individuals.

Rich spent the last 20 years as the heart beat to Finger Eleven appearing on every single album the bands released till 2013.

Rich was really fun to talk with and shared a lot of fun stories including a great story about a broken shovel and the great late Dave Williams from Drowning Pool.

Here interview with CJ from Drowning Pool

Saint Asonia offers a really great blend of hard rock and melodic tones throughout the whole album. The self titled release is available to the public July 31st.


Greg Edwards from Failure joined me on this week’s Revelator to discuss the band’s new album “The Heart Is A Monster” the bands first release in nearly 18 years. The album includes 18 original songs with the original line up.

Greg and I talk about the bands early days and some of his favorite moments including opening up for TOOL in the early 90’s. I had a fun story Scott Lucus from Local H shared with me regarding a tour with Failure in Nashville nearly 20 years ago.

Failure has shown with this release that even after all this time they still can develop and write meaningful and well thought out music.

Greg talks about the change in himself and the other members from their early albums. We talk about the break up and the formation of Failure. “The Heart Is A Monster” is a delicate blend to creating balance to ones equilibrium to regenerate a musical heart.
