GOJIRA LIVE REVIEWS FROM THE RECENT UK DATES...
Posted on June 30, 2012
GOJIRA released their new album 'L'Enfant Sauvage' this week, as well as nailing 3 incredible UK dates in Sheffield, Birmingham and London. There have been a few live reviews from the shows popping up online and we've copied and pasetd a few for your reading pleasure!
Gojiramazing. Yeah they are. Their performance is so superlative that new words really do need to be created sometimes. Joe Duplantier is a behemoth at the front of the stage, crushing his technical riffs whilst displaying a humility and gratitude to the crowd that is as genuine as it is robust. It’s a Gojiramazing performance from the frontman. Spread that word as far and as wide as you can.

If you ever want to run out of superlatives for how to describe a show, go see Gojira. You’ll struggle to find a better live band anywhere in the world right now, and it’s essentially impossible to overstate how utterly flawless they were last night. Joe’s vocals were vicious and genuine, Mario’s drumming is probably the best in the world just now, the songs – especially the truly superb tracks from L’Enfant Sauvage, and in particular the magnificent title track – were all, without exception, brilliant, and the riffs heavy enough to open a rip in the space-time continuum.

Musically, every band member excels, and Joe Duplantier’s vocals are magnificent, but it’s his brother Mario, on drums, whose playing is the secret weapon to Gojira’s sound. Easily one of the best drummers around at the moment, Mario effortlessly creates intricately complex rhythms before hitting his kit so hard you think his sticks will shatter...They are, in my humble opinion, the best metal band on the planet right now.
