Black Peaks' Will Gardner on why he loves French metallers Gojira

The frontman of Brighton-based metallers Black Peaks speaks out about why he loves Gojira

THEY CRUSH IT LIVE

“I saw Gojira for the first time 10 years ago at Download festival. My friend had said to me, ‘Hey, I checked out this record called From Mars To Sirius by this band, Gojira – you should really go check them out!’ I was like, ‘What kind of stuff is it?’ and he said, ‘It’s brutal death metal with its own... thing.’ I told him, ‘I’m not really into death metal’, but I went down to the tent anyway, and it literally changed my whole fucking perception of music. It blew me out of the water.”

THEY DON'T HAVE FANS - ONLY FANATICS

“It sounds really strange, but I’d never seen a French band in rock music, ever, and maybe that influences their sound, but whatever it is that makes up their music, it’s just so unbelievably amazing and raw. After seeing them at Download, I went out and bought From Mars To Sirius straight after, and I’ve followed them religiously ever since. I honestly think they’re one of the heaviest bands in the world.”
