No matter what, I would be sure to use a Lanthanum "death metal" lens for the shoot! ~(:+>}}

how about just a normal color photograph of them in the woods ...
you know - a beautiful landscape and the band is
wearing sweaters and their sunday-best, all smiley, giddy and cute.
it would be reminiscent of "throbbing gristle 20 jazz funk greats"

Or Dario Argento's Phenomena. Of course unless times have changed drastically irony was never well-received by the youth of the day (Minor Threat being a case in point).

In my mind the whole thing wants to be done in black and white, but the band really wants color. I think I'm going to look for something in-between.



That's why I suggested cross-processing: Wash out the colors. You get the best (or worst) of both worlds.

With it being autumn in the northern hemisphere, I might like to get them in a stoney creek bed surrounded by bare trees, shoot infrared.

I hope this shoot was successful after all of the diverse advice! LOL

I don't think there is any reason why you should not give them what they want but then try some different things. You should make up a list of all the interesting and appropriate venues (areas, fields, old factories) easily available to you and see where that takes you. I once had a gritty closed-down steel manufacturing factory available to me complete with crumpled 500-foot smoke stack laying on the ground. It was a license to steal as far as getting some "different" photos was concerned. You need to mine the areas available and find the gold vein.

My first suggestion is to watch "This is Spinal Tap" a couple of times. After that, just turn it up to 11.

Just as an FYI - this shoot took place in 2009.

A five year old thread resurrected, and here I am still trying to get the perfect "brick wall" shot...

I see they have a Facebook page now: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Grevil/194531008134. There are some photos, but I don't know if they were done by the OP---who unfortunately hasn't been heard from since 2011, so I guess we'll never know how it went.
