How many times have you had the opportunity to catch a French technical Death Metal band live? Probably not many, and if you have, you were undoubtedly seeing Gojira! The Bayonne virtuosos are back, having last graced our shores for the 2014 Soundwave Festival.
WHO ARE GOJIRA?
Joe Duplantier – Vocals, rhythm guitar
Mario Duplantier – Drums
Christian Andreu – Lead guitar
Jean-Michel Labadie – Bass
Gojira have earned a reputation as one of Metal’s most unique acts through not only their technical mastery, but through the environmental conversation focus of much of their lyrical content. Gojira are a band with a mission, and a no holds barred approach to ensuring their message is communicated loud and clear! Gojira’s love of nature and the earth is inspired by the surroundings of their home in Bayonne, and they collaborate closely with the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to protect the natural environment. More than just activists though, Gojira are no less than Grammy-nominated musicians for their latest album Magma (2016). Magma is dark, depressive and Gothic. Be prepared to reach into the depths of meaningful Metal with Gojira!
YOU CAN CATCH GOJIRA ON MARCH 24TH AT FLEMINGTON RACECOURSE IN MELBOURNE AS PART OF DOWNLOAD MELBOURNE
