A whole nine years have passed since the Gnô debut "Trash Deluxe". Now the trio from France has finally managed to bring the successor "Cannibal Tango" onto the market. The reason for the long radio silence is neither laziness nor lack of ideas, but rather the fact that guitarist Christophe Godin is firmly anchored in the band Mörglbl. She's making some kind of funky jazz skirt. Gnô also presents a similar style mix. Just maybe a little more diverse. It actually contains almost everything you can imagine about music. Here jazz, funk, metal and rock meet in a massive way. And it all sounds really good, at least for fans of heavy guitar riffs and marked crossover. Outstanding is the singing, which is not oriented to the classical lead singer scheme. With the three French people, everyone gets a shot at the microphone, which makes the whole thing much more dynamic. So there is one thing you can't blame the threesome for, and that is that he is not varied enough or even boring.
