|Just Saw Gojira And Ghost|
At the Jagermeister Tour at Birmingham. They were also suppotred by the Defiled who I thought were pretty pants. Anyway, long story short, I went for Gojira but Ghost fucking slayed and were by far the best band on the night.
Opened the night, were kind of crappy tbh, lots of chugs and the scene kids loved them, but were just not on the same level as the other bands on the night. Also got the impression they take themselves far too seriously and think they're the best band ever and are a bunch of assholes. Impression confirmed when they boasted about their hardcore drinking prowess about how they got drunk and pissed in their sound guy's bag. Which is just mean.
From Mars To Sirius
The reason I wanted to go in the first place, surprised they didn't get the headlinign slot and only got 45 minutes. But honestly, as well as they played the songs, 45 minutes was for the best as they got a bit monotonous by the end. Songs like Backbone and L'enfant Sauvage stood out, but overall it got somewhat tiresome. Phemonenal musicians, but tonight it lacked that bit of heart.
Had reservations about why they'd been given about half and hour longer than Gojira and effectively the headline slot. And while I enjoyed their album, with the ache that my back was giving me, I thought an hour and twenty odd minuteed would take a long time to pass. But damn the energy they gave off on the night was amazing. Papa Emeritus roamed the stage while his gouls provided the most wonderful, thumping backing track that I think caught everyone by surprse, especially myself. Top notch performance and would recommend to anyone to check out live if they can.
|so yeah go see Ghost|
|Cool will check ghost when they pass at the hellfest then|
|Damn. had a bro that saw ghost and opeth said it was really good. Will definitely go out of my way to see them tho|
|make sure you do, abosulutely awesome|
this gig was only £5 too which was unbelieavble, though my beer was the same price so that made it make sense
|£5 is a bargain for that ticket. wish i could see ghost|
|Ghost rule I saw them a few weeks back|
Gojira I saw last year, they were decent but I wasn't really into them at the time
|I don't get that vibe from The Defiled at all. My mate's also their guitar tech I discovered recently, he says they're a great bunch of lads. Also he told me their real names and they really didn't fit (although I can't remember what they are right now). I went to the London leg ant these were my ratings:|
Feed the Rhino 7/10
The Defiled 7/10
Gojira 10/10 tight as fuck and heavy as fuck, brought their A game as they're recording for a DVD.
Ghost 5/10 tight but just bored me.
|Ghost would have been awesome. Am jelly|
|I do not get the hype behind Ghost.|
