Knotfest 2012 was nothing if not a vigorous experience. Take it from these three Gojira fans above. For the thousands who gathered in Somerset, Wisconsin, this was one of the few festival experiences of the year that actually put metal front-and-center, and it was Iowa natives Slipknot who made it a reality. As for these eye-popping GIFs, the work of Gimme Noise's teammate Erik Hess is on display here.
