""Headbangers"covers a rich milieu of fans, all united by a love for heavy metal music and the cathartic escape of headbanging."
British Journal of Photography
"The beautifully intimate portraits capture moments of uninhibited emotion both serious and joyous that would otherwise have been lost in the raucous crowd."
"Ehrbahn's images are more"Humans ofNuMetal"than"Humans of New York"(it's not exactly a diverse crowd) but individuality is definitely at work here, along with expressions of total abandon, catharsis, and occasional joy."
