VIDEO: GOJIRA PLAY “EXPLOSIA” AND “THE AXE” LIVE FOR THE FIRST TIME
So, how about this fucking L’Enfant Sauvage album, huh? I mean it is fucking great or is it fucking great? It’s still only July, but it’s hard for me to imagine it not ending up on a metric fuckton of year-end lists. And it’s obviously the water-cooler album of the summer.
So, terrific news: Gojira played the first and third tracks from that release, “Explosia” (best album opener of the year?) and “The Axe,” live for the first time last week in Sheffield, England. The resulting bootleg videos (below + after the jump) suggest that both tunes sound just as intense live as I’ve hoped they would. The band is scheduled to tour North America with Lamb of God (fingers crossed) and Dethklok next month; it can’t come soon enough as far as I’m concerned. Get dates here.
