Mastodon at Leeds Festival 2012 by Gobinder Jhitta Thrash Hits

In addition to those sweet as you like on-stage photos of Cancer Bats’ Main Stage triumph we showed you last weekend, our man Gobinder Jhitta took a shedload of photos at this year’s Leeds Festival. We basically gave him free rein to go shoot whatever and whoever he wanted, and he didn’t let us down – pretty much every band we ranted and/or raved about in our post-Reading & Leeds Festival podcast is featured in his gallery, which you can check out after the jump.

This Is Hell live at the London Borderline c/o Ben Gibson Thrash Hits

We once joked that one of our photographers, Ben Gibson, took an exorbitant number of shots of band members’ crotches and/or band members engaging in mid-air splits. We only meant it as a bit of light-hearted ribbing, but our boy Ben seems to have taken it to heart, and now sees it as a mark of honour to get as many in-air shots as possible into the photo sets he sends us.
