Video has emerged showing the moment gunfire interrupted a concert at the Bataclan hall as Islamic State terrorists launched their massacre.
US band Eagles of Death Metal were playing their song Kiss The Devil when the sound of automatic gunfire rang out in the famous 1,500 capacity venue.
One of the guitarists is seen running off the stage, while drummer Julian Dorio ducks down behind his drum kit before the film stops.
Graphic designer Sebastien Snow was filming the gig on his mobile phone when the shooting started and posted it to Instagram with the caption "The last notes before gunshots, panic and horror".
In a subsequent post, he also criticised French politicians who might try to use the tragedy to further their own agendas.

After dropping to the floor, the band managed to escape via a backstage door and ran to a police station, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Mr Dorio's brother Michael told the newspaper his brother sounded "shaken but thankful" when he called shortly after the attack.
At least 89 people were killed at the Bataclan, the deadliest in a series of attacks that left 132 dead and 352 injured across the French capital.
Elite police commandos launched an assault on the venue - one of six locations targeted in "unprecedented" violence.
Two attackers blew themselves up with suicide belts as police closed in, while a third attacker was killed by security forces during the raid, the prosecutor's office said.
The video inside the venue is the latest amateur footage to capture the terror experienced by those caught up in the attacks.
Footage published by Le Monde showed dozens of people spilling out of the Bataclan, running for their lives to escape the attackers.
Some could be seen clinging on by their fingers to window ledges high up on the wall of the building after climbing from second-floor windows.
As Paris continues to mourn, some of those caught up in the attack have been returning to the scene, where a makeshift shrine has sprung up.
Many have placed signs in both French and Arabic, welcoming peace between religions.
