If you've never seen Gojira or Kvelertak live, you're in for a hell of a show. Watch the videos—Gojira performing "Flying Whales," from their upcoming live CD/DVD/photo book Les Enfants Sauvages (not available in stores; pre-order your copy from the Roadrunner webstore), and Kvelertak playing "Bruane Brenn"—to get some idea of why this tour is basically a must-see.
