In a strange pairing, France’s metal behemoth, Gojira, in all their massive, whale-wailing glory, took to the road across North America alongside the UK’s djent giants (djiants?) TesseracT.
Though many of us weren’t keen on either Gojira’s [review] or TesseracT’s [review] latest releases, a live performance is a different matter, and there is absolutely no denying the power and energy these acts bring to the stage. In their larger-than-life lighting and performances, full of heavy riffs and grooves, as well as charming intermissions and crowd interactions, both Gojira and TesseracT are sure to attract huge crowds for years to come.
Photographer Mark Valentino was even treated to a special performance by Car Bomb, hot off the heels of their latest release in Meta [review].
