Apocryfiend was a local metal band from the Lehigh Valley in Northeast Pennsylvania. While they have always been led by Lance and Kita, they had gone through a few different line ups. Additional members consisted of Crimi, Devon, Ryan, Sean, Joe. There may have been previous members that I’m not aware of or recalling at the moment.
I was introduced to Apocryfiend back in 2010 or 2011. At some point early on, they asked me to manage the band. I was new to the whole metal music scene, but I had management experience, so I jumped in head first. That’s when I needed to come up with a name for me. A few friends and I did some brainstorming and came up with LadySkullshine.
While, I managed Apocryfiend, I mostly did a lot of photography and promotion for them. I really got a ton of hands on experience working with them along with so many other bands. Eventually, they split up. I continued to do my thing for a while until some things in my life shifted, making it difficult to continue.
The following pics are some of my favorites. I will be adding more as I go through old albums.
