July had everything: a Warped Tour surprise (in the shape of Linkin Park turning up and playing with every band ever), a MONUMENTAL party with Fall Out Boy and Paramore in New York, plus there was the small matter of Sonisphere...
Ahh, Sonisphere 2014. You were a beautiful weekend. These were your best bits, featuring Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Babymetal, Slayer, The Bronx and many more. All photos shot by Ben Gibson and Giles Smith for Rock Sound.
Reel Big Fish played Sonisphere earlier, and we were there to capture the moment. You're not ready for the checkerboard in this one. Read what we made of their set on our Sunday Sonisphere live blog.
Ever Googled Krokodil? Whatever you do, don't you dare Google Krokodil. On the plus side, these photos of Lags, Dan & Co. won't make you do a sick, so that's nice. Check out what we made of their set on our live blog of Sunday at Sonisphere.
As you can surely see, The Bronx went several shades of crazy at Sonisphere this afternoon. To read what we made of their colossal set, hit our Sunday live blog.
Wade and the rest of the Gallows lot hit the Bohemia Stage a little earlier on. It got sweaty, very sweaty. Check out what we made of their set on our live blog of Sunday at Sonisphere.
Protest The Hero hit the Saturn Stage earlier, and they looked tech metal-tastic if nothing else. Check out all of our coverage of Sunday at Sonisphere in our live blog.
