December 8, 2008 – With precision drumming, technical riffs, and enough breakdowns to sink your battleship, France's death metal kings Gojira stormed the stage like a 60,000-ton reptile.
Though a very short shoot, Gojira brought a very high-energy set to the stage of the Pageant that was fun to photograph.
In contrast to In Flames' performance, Gorija felt a little more removed, despite sharing basically the same stage setup. I think this was mostly due to the different stage presences of Gojira's Joe Duplantier and In Flames' Anders Fridén.
I used the D3 almost exclusively for this shoot. While I did mount the 14-24mm for a few shots, the 24-70mm alone could have handled all the shots in the first three for this one.
