“Killfest” was in NYC and while the guys in Overkill originally hail from New Jersey, it’s pretty safe to call them one of New York’s most popular bands as well. Tonight the band would be bringing their traveling Metal circus to the Nokia Theatre in Times Square and as the night progressed we would learn that the Metal was not the only excitement brewing in the city that evening. The show itself featured Woe Of Tyrants, Evile, Warbringer, God Dethroned and Vader as support for the band and WOW, was that a lineup to sink one’s teeth into.

I usually enjoy photographing the brightly lit marquee at the Nokia since its so often very decorative and “resounding”, but tonight I would have to deal with scaffolding.
A little closer to get the image of “Chaly”, the bands mascot with the skull and bat wings. Chaly is not to be confused with the very similar image used by Avenged Sevenfold.
I was not sure why this was happening inside the venue tonight, but for some reason there were a number of straw hats being tossed around and worn by the audience who eventually got them up onto the stage. Some of the band members wore them before the head banging sent them on their way. It’s always interesting at a Metal show my friends.
Oh and while we mentioned how the city was insane with police activity and investigation after the all too real bomb scare that occurred while many were downstairs getting the Metal on, I didn’t take any photos of that. I just wanted to get away from the area and figured the news would fill everyone in on the chaos that was found in Times Square after the show.
