Gojira and Car Bomb were fucking awesome, the TWOAF (Toxic Garbage Island, Vacuity) and FMTS (Flying Whales, Backbone) songs came out perfectly, and they played and extended version of my favourite Magma song (Pray). Setlist was very heavy on Magma, understandably, but the crowd freaking loved it which made me enjoy it more too. Just now I remember how wild The Cell was, though I might consider staying on the balcony the next time, I was constantly being pushed from side to side. :lol

Code Orange though, holy shit. The instrumentation was alright and at times pretty cool actually, but they had 3 vocalists (drummer, 2 guitar players) and one of them had a really annoying core voice, another had an almost black metal voice, and the third I still don't know whether it was a boy or a girl (both by voice and appearance). This band drew in real dickheads though, which was my main gripe. Apparently these guys do martial arts in the mosh pits, and I (not even standing inside the actual mosh pit) received a karate kick in my upper back, still hurts like hell. Anyone got experience with these emo/hardcore like mosh pits? There was also one dude literally running circles along the border of the circle and punching (full power) random spectators, he got put in his place though. I think those guys might just be nutcases but maybe this is something people actually do at these type of shows? Let me know if you're familiar with this

Stuff.
Hey, sorry, my buddy who is going on Friday night decided when I saw him last weekend to swap tickets since Saturday is actually easier for him to make.  So my Saturday tickets are all gone, I do have one for Friday in Brooklyn now though if you wanted that one for face value (about 50 bucks cheaper than stubhub before fees).  The Saturday show isn't sold out though, there's a lot of seats open, although no floor.  Sorry. 

No worries, that's on me for taking forever to get my plans sorted. I already have a ticket for Saturday, but it's a seat (lower section) rather than floor, so I was hoping to upgrade. Seat might not be bad though, gives me more time to drink beforehand since I don't have to worry about getting a decent spot  :yarr

You going to the Saturday show?

Yea Ill be at both, and the Jersey show 6 weeks earlier.  :metal

Nice :metal I'll probably spend most of the day drinking in the city if you want to meet up for beers at some point.

Gojira was fucking impressive. The moshpit was quite big so we were lucky to be at the bar in the back enjoying the show with a beer :metal

Happy with my tickets for the Dynamo Metal Meeting in Eindhoven to see Gojira again this summer!

I was thinking the same about Code Orange. Instrumentation ok but I'm nog a big fan of the vocals (is it a boy or a girl..)
Feels like they are still searching for their musical direction.

Good to hear about Gojira.  Not familiar with them, but hearing good stuff from my friends and was planning on seeing them in May, with Devin Townsend opening and Opeth closing  :metal

I believe I saw them open for Mastodon a couple years back and they put on a pretty good show, at least for someone with zero familiarity with their work.

Love Gojira since about 10 years and was finally able to see the live this year.
Soo fricking tight and good... what a show!
