French progressive metal volcano spews fireballs on ‘Magma’

Metal monster Gojira (Japanese for Godzilla, one of the best known Kaiju of Japanese mythology) really earned its band name with ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ from ’12 (those drum parts in the title track!). “Gojira’s best work to date. Acrobatic guitar lines and rhythmic shifts capable of inducing whiplash.” (Pitchfork)

Successor ‘Magma’, their sixth issue (via Roadrunner – June ‘16), confirms their status as one of the world’s most exciting metal- and rock-acts around. There are swarms of comparisons with metal milestones like Metallica’s untitled album (the black one from ’91) and Mastodon’s ‘The Hunter’. Intergalactic riffs combined with an impressively grooving drum and songs, real songs. Something that extreme metalbands sometimes forget.

Oh, and this four-man splinter bomb with fuse in the hands of the Duplantier brothers (drums & vocals/guitar) is like no other, live. Just saying…

Candidate for concert of the year! Amazing performance by the band, very good setlist and the crowd was mad!

Concert au top!!!

Alle registers open gisteren én uit vele metal-vaatjes getapt! Zalige intro's, fantastische setlist, relaxte dudes. Dat Pray (stemgewijs) niet uit de verf kwam, deed er zelfs niks meer toe. Op een paar nijdiger fuckertjes na ook een fantastisch publiek dat mee op een schitterende foto van band en zaal zal staan. En volgens mij was Mario's eerste woord 'danku', verder zijn Zuidfransen gelukkig ook niet met onze taalkwesties bezig. Muzikaal alreeds het concert van het jaar en dat wellicht voor de rest van het jaar!

Super retestrak en loodzwaar concert. De Mario, wat een beest! Wel redelijk respectloos naar de Vlamingen dat Joe bijna enkel Frans sprak. Spreek op zijn minst dan toch Engels!
