Mastodon and Gojira are playing support for Metallica on their Black Album tour. Wednesday this week they played for 40.000 people in Oslo, Norway. Here are some pictures of the two great bands from when they played the Norwegian Wood festival in Oslo last summer.
Both Gojira and Mastodon did great gigs in Oslo last summer. They played the hard rock night at the festival, together with Norwegian bands Insense and Enslaved, with Mastodon as the headliner band. They are from Atlanta, and are labelled as a progressive and sludge metal band. Troy Sanders and Brent Hinds are natural front guys in the band.
Gojira are French, and the members are Joe Duplantier on vocals and guitar, his brother Mario on drums, charismatic Jean-Michel Labadie on bass and Christian Andreu on lead guitar. Gojira are known for their ultra precise and tight playing, and are often compared to band like Tool and other progressive metal bands.
