It’s Friday and there’s not better way to enter the weekend than with some Gojira blasting out of your speakers. With that in mind, Bloody-Disgusting is thrilled to bring you an exclusive live performance video of “A Sight To Behold”. The video, which you can watch below, was shot at the 2009 Garorock music festival and is part of one of the live concerts featured on the band’s latest live DVD/Blu-Ray The Flesh Alive (review). Already out in Europe, this 2-disc DVD+bonus CD set (1-disc Blu-Ray+bonus CD) will be released in the US on July 31st. You can pre-order your copy here.
The rise of Gojira is nothing short of meteoric and wonderful. Hailing from Bayonne, France, this extreme metal band, who brilliantly blends technicality with melody, has garnered world wide praise with each of their releases.
