Gig Coverage: Gojira destroyed Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus (7/14)



French metal behemoths Gojira recently dropped their sixth studio album and second overall full-length effort on Roadrunner Records entitled Magma. The new record was captured at the band’s own Silver Cord Studio in Ridgewood, Queens, and what better place to celebrate the fresh release than with an intimate performance in NYC! The guys did just that, as they took on the super tiny Saint Vitus Bar (350 cap.) in Brooklyn two Thursday’s ago (7/14), for what was a sweaty, sticky, stinky and damn amazing good time.

Fans lucky enough to snatch tickets to the rare show (before they sold-out in mere minutes), were treated to quite a hefty set-list from Gojira, consisting of a healthy mix of tracks spanning the band’s last 5 releases, and including a gnarly drum solo by Mario Duplantier. Being as their is no backstage at Saint Vitus, our metal heroes were forced to push their way through the thick crowd to access the stage and start the night’s first song, 2008′s crushing “Toxic Garbage Island.” From there on, Vitus was a complete warzone, with nonstop headbanging and moshing courtesy of excited fans.

Frontman Joe Duplantier roared through brand new tracks “Silvera” and “Stranded,” meanwhile lead guitarist Christian Andreu and bassist Jean-Michel Labadie shined best during pummeling classics “Flying Whales” and “Vacuity.” The band ended the boisterous night with their devastating 2012 cut “Explosia.” Other noteworthy moments include Joe bringing up Bastille Day and the attacks in France, the band celebrating Jean-Michel‘s birthday and Mario stage diving and surfing through the crowd at the end of the set, followed by the band rushing through the horde of people, high-fiving fans as they made their way towards the exit.

Check out more pics from the night below, along with fan-filmed footage. Gojira return to NYC this fall for a show at Terminal 5 with Tesseract [tix still available]. See all upcoming tour dates, here.
