Gojira - The Flesh Alive

Gojira are a great band live, as anyone who has seen them can attest, so a full-blown concert DVD is something of a no-brainer. Filmed off the back of The Way Of All Flesh, the live content of The Flesh Alive is two shows in their native France filmed in glorious HD, complete with surround sound. Why the need for two near-identical shows is beyond me, but there is no denying that they sound terrific, and do as good a job of capturing the band in their element as it is possible in this format.

The obligatory documentary however is a painfully dull hour of meandering nothingness. Covering from album pre-production through to their European Metallica support slot, it's a repetitive cycle of the same footage with minimal dialogue, and only serves to highlight the monotony of life on the road, seeing the same things and people no matter where in the world you are. Whilst hardly an essential purchase, The Flesh Alive is certainly a worthy addition to any Gojira collection.
