Gojira Rises And Attacks New Orleans

When shows have similar-sounding bands on the bill, it’s hard to write a good show report. When the bands sound very different from each other, the experience becomes very different. Gojira brought along scary psychedelics Zoroaster and hard-to-classify Burst. The show was diverse but very heavy and complex. While Gojira is on tour with Metallica, they are taking the time on off-days to play in the cities that the big show is missing. Any one who goes to see Gojira’s headline show will be very glad that the band made the decision to fill in the gaps. More...
