Couple's Engagement Photo Shoot Crashed By Black Metal Band

October 22, 2016

According to ABC News, a couple's engagement photo shoot was accidentally crashed by a black metal band.

John Awesome and Nydia Hernandez were having pictures taken in Holy Jim Canyon, California, when they came across the black metal band COLDVOID, which was also in the woods shooting promo photos.

"During the last part of the session, we noticed a few guys with some corpse paint makeup on sitting at a nearby bench blaring out some black metal music," Awesome told ABC News. "We just randomly thought it would be a funny idea if we could get them to be a part of our engagement shoot. So we approached them and asked and they more than happy to accept! Super nice people. I seriously can't make this stuff up."

The members of COLDVOID sported head-to-toe black, corpse-like painted faces. One of the musicians even posed with a sword, while another held a lit candelabra.

"They gave us a copy of their new demo and it was the perfect eerie soundtrack for the drive out of the woods," said the couple's photographer Janet Wheeland. "It was a perfect, spontaneous finale to our photo shoot. We couldn't have planned it better."

The unique images garnered more than 600,000 views on Imgur in just two days.
