I skipped Rains's performance, so it was Hatebreed that kicked off this show for me, warming up the stage and crowd for Five Finger Death Punch and All That Remains. Bathed in a sickly orange light punctuated with strobes, this set marked a nice warm up for me as well, and the fast pace of Hatebreed's set certainly kept me on my toes.

I was kind of shocked that I photographed most of this quick set with the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8. But a relatively low stage and the stage-front friendliness of the band the ultra-wide seem like a natural conclusion for this concert.
