Photos of Alt. Metal/Rock acts Alkanes, Fight The Raptor and The Hunt live at Tooth & Claw, Inverness.

Our intrepid photographer stepped out with a swagger and armed with his new Nikon D500, crop frame, low light beast of a camera to snap a night of devastating rawk n roll from Alkanes, Fight The Raptor and The Hunt.

Alkanes were supported by two bands who were playing for the first time live in their respective line-ups.  And a mighty impressive sound they made.

The Hunt are a thrashy guitar rock and drums 2-piece with songs and banter to match.

Fight The Raptor are also new to the scene with their Alt.Metal/Rock  epic screaming thrash metal riffs.

Both acts are so new that at the time of publishing this post neither had any presence on Soundcloud/Bandcamp/Facebook etc.  Keep your eyes peeled.

Alkanes are a 3-piece Alt. Rock/Alt. Metal band based in Aberdeen who formed in 2014  They have a particular focus on big dynamic riffs and draw influence from bands such as Arcane Roots, Biffy Clyro, Muse, Oceansize and Fightstar.

The band’s debut EP A Different Kind of Perfect is out now on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal, Deezer, Amazon and Google Play.

More images of the bands can be found over on the Netsounds Facebook page.
