May 16, 2005: 2005 Photo Section Updated!

Yes it's true!!!
Only 5 months into 2005 and the lazy-ass webmaster finally got some photos in the Photos: 2005 section of the website. These are some pictures from the sessions when the Kerrang Krew came out to feature Usurper in Kerrang magazine (article title:" Usurper: The Most Metal Band in the World!" - by Dom Lawson). These were some out-takes shot by Rami Lawson. We'll have the official 300dpi/promo versions, shot by Nick "Nickenator" Stevens (official Kerrang photographer) in the Promo Photos section of the website very soon, as well as some live pictures from the first 3 Cryptobeast concerts up very soon. (start holding breath... now!)

The first 3 shows for the Cryptobeast live assault were all very successful. Please check back soon for live photos from these shows as well as all new 2005 promo photos, photos from the video shoot, exclusive merchandise, new profile questions, updated archives and more summer tour dates.
