Remembrance Sunday and what better way to spend it than with our allies the French, and one of their finest exports in the form of Goijira backed up by fellow country men Klone and Trepalium.
First support band Trepalium sounded like they are from the 90's and never moved forward. I'm not saying old school is a bad thing, heck give me some early 90's sounding death metal and i'm a happy man, but this was not Swedish Death Metal, it was groove metal. Even if they were not my cup of tea, the audience lapped them up, and they certainly put on an energetic live show. Singer KK bounced around the stage dreads a flailing barking out lyrics whilst the guitarists flipped genre's like they were going out of fashion. They tore stompy groove laden hooks into jazz interludes, mixing in little elements of funk and beyond, there were riffs that I swear could have been taken straight from the "Pornograffiti" era Nuno Bettencourt school of guitar and brutalised through a distortion pedal. Heavy, happy, and bouncy but not my thing.
