26th December 2009: Rock The World 9 at Bukit Jalil! Here’s more with Ceased War.
…who had the Sepultura sound.
Crowd shot with the Peleng 8mm F3.5 and 2x teleconverter, then de-fished in DxO Optics Pro.
I pointed the fisheye at a dead crowd, and they started jumping…
…I had started a moshpit without even being in the moshpit!
This is one of many misunderstood activities that happen at a rock concert. Anybody who is in the front knows what they are in for; a physical manifestation of the energy gotten from hard and heavy rocking.
Exorage, who sounds a fair bit MUSE.
Floor 88 did a cover of 30 Seconds To Mars – The Kill.
Man I love sunburst wood tops!
Jeapardice brings funk.
Wynken Delirium yeaaarrrggghhh!
You know a band is true when they have obscure oriental instruments.
The Great Southern Gathering – haha! That gig title was definitely a spinoff of Pantera’s The Great Southern Trendkill.
Moving on to indie sounds with Sam Kuman.
Nice crop from the Carl Zeiss 135mm F1.8. All shots here are with that lens or the Minolta 24-105mm F3.5-4.5(D) unless otherwise specified. Heck this blog entry shows all the bands before I got my Opteka 85mm F1.4 in the afternoon!
What was going on in the Chillout Stage?
Coca Di Monday is a huge band, a precursor to ska.
Pitbull Inc. rocks the Main Stage.
“Why yes, pulling up does help…”
“Hmmm is that my pick guard on the floor?”
Gotta love those aged Fenders.
Bactrim also does funk.
Robot Asmara does indie.
Gotta dig his mohawk…
…and them shades. Shades are a definite way to increase visibility in rock concert pictures!
Federated has a kilt. That is so metal!
