The following video was filmed at the 2010 Download festival in England about a week ago. The camera is fixed, and the point of view is from behind the stage looking out at the 50,000+ audience. The band is Unearth, playing “Sanctity of Brothers”.
The sound quality isn’t great, but this is a cool thing to watch, for at least three reasons: (1) It’s Unearth; (2) the massive fucking circle pit in action from the beginning (and again at the end); and (3) the sight of thousands of arms flashing skyward when Trevor Phipps begins leading the chant near the end.
Assuming the embed works OK, take this one to full-screen mode. Looks like it was an awesome party.
I was there. It was awesome. To be borne in mind – they were the first band on on the first day. LOTS of anticipation beforehand, and they tapped right into it…
Oh you lucky dog! Amazing that they were the first band and drew that kind of response. Quite a sight to see!
