The Metal Alliance Tour with Reaping Asmodeia

I recently went out on the road with Reaping Asmodeia, a technical metal band from the Twin Cities, that recently got signed to Prosthetic Records. It was 10 days total, 7 days of shows with two off days for us to get to Baltimore for the first date of the Metal Alliance Tour. The experience I had while on this run was unbelievable. I will never forget the shows and the people I met while being on this tour. I would like to thank The Acacia Strain, Jungle Rot and Black Crown Initiate for letting me photograph them for most of the dates.

 

Enjoy!

Day 1 - The Red Zone, Madison, Wisconsin

The first day of tour was a headlining date in Madison, Wisconsin accompanied by local metal powerhouse Pangaea.

After the show in Madison, we started making our way to Baltimore, Maryland.

Along the way, we hung out at a Ohio Travel Center to use wifi. That day Reaping Asmodeia also dropped a new song. A very productive day off is always a good day off.
