As a priest investigates the stigmatic wounds of a young man found dead in a hotel room, he discovers that the boy’s frightening supernatural gifts have put both the priest himself and the boy’s rebellious sister at the center of a conspiracy within the catholic church.
The movie investigates mysterious (and scary) religious phenomenon beyond just possession and the stigmata. Watch for a director announcement soon

Let me just say that I’m pretty peeved that they’re not making it through Michigan. Considering that DTP is supporting, there’s a damn good chance that they might perform “Of Blood And Salt“, which would just blow my mind. And I’m positive that right before they hit the first notes of that song, Meshuggah‘s Fredrik Thordendal would come riding in on a white horse, magical sunbeams shining behind him as his hair flows mystically. He wouldn’t dismount the horse, oh no. Rather, he would just float down, arms gently spread, a soft smile upon his face. A guitar would apparate around his neck and, suddenly, everything comes crashing down as the song begins. Seriously, I have $20 down that this will happen at one of the shows.

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. Interest spread so far and grew so large that Metallica had them as support for much of their late 2009 tour. They were once again invited to join Metallica during their European tour. This was all an opportunity for them to support their (at the time) newly released album The Way Of All Flesh.
All of this is the focus of Gojira’s latest live DVD, The Flesh Alive. Featuring two full concerts, three songs from another, and a 62-minute documentary, this DVD aims to give viewers a chance to enter the world of one of France’s heaviest and most fascinating bands. But does it succeed or leave the viewer feeling cheated? READ MORE
