Sonisphere 2014: SPIN's Best Live Photos

  • Photo by: Nic Bezzina

Sonisphere Festival returned to England's Knebworth Park over the July 4 weekend, bringing a cavalcade of ripping metal bands to a stately Downton Abbey-like manor built in the 15th century. Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Slayer, Mastodon, Gojira, Prodigy, Trash Talk, Deftones, Ghost, and, yes, J-pop idol phenomenon Babymetal blew through the historic site across those three days, bringing much shred and a whole lot of gloomy gear to the gorgeous grounds. SPIN was there to capture the best images.
