Because there was such a huge line-up for the Opeth / In Flames show at the Kool Haus on December 21st, Oregon-based rockers Red Fang were already well into their second song by the time I made it into the photo pit for their opening set.
Swedish metal band In Flames were up second and they were hands down the highlight of the night, both performance-wise and picture-wise. Swedish prog rock / metal band Opeth only had a 7-song setlist, which meant the handful of photographers in the pit only had two songs to work with, which I quite suddenly found out about when a security person tapped me on the shoulder and told me it was time to go.
I photographed this show for A Music Blog, Yea? You can see the full set of pictures right here.
