Gojira Biography - Gojira Discography - All Heavy Metal Bands


Following the immense praise of From Mars To Sirius and recurring trips across the Atlantic for North American touring alongside the likes of Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, and Behemoth among others, GOJIRA established its stranglehold on the extreme metal spectrum with a linguist s touch, a lyricist s finesse, and a crushingly heavy live show that left audiences astounded, establishing the band s live performance as a spot-on recreation of the band s increasingly adept and intelligent studio output. While 2007 wrapped with GOJIRA again touring North America on the Radio Rebellion Tour alongside Behemoth to the best reaction yet, the dawn of 2008 saw a nearly 10 month wait for while the band assembled The Way of All Flesh, one of the year s most anticipated records. This time revolving around the undeniable dilemma of a mortal demise, GOJIRA s soundtrack to the situation seems fitting. Shifting ever-so-slightly from the eco-friendly orchestra of impending doom on From Mars To Sirius to the band s new message of the equally uncontrollable inevitability of death, The Way of All Flesh melds the open and airy progressive passages GOJIRA has become famous for with the sonically dense sounds and bludgeoningly heavy rhythms that makes the band an equally intelligent force as it is unmatchably heavy. Featuring a guest vocal spot on Adoration For None from Lamb of God s Randy Blythe one of GOJIRA s most vocal supporters from their first moment making an impression in the Americas and the now familiar Morbid Angel-isms of The Way Of All Flesh s title track join the angular riffing more akin to Meshuggah on Esoteric Surgery and the epic, artful plodding of the nearly 10-minute The Art of Dying, showing that GOJIRA have indeed opened a new bag of tricks for The Way Of All Flesh, while not abandoning the sound that first showed a massive promise of potential on Sirius. It s more inventive than From Mars To Sirius and at the same time more straight to the point, GOJIRA frontman Joe Duplantier says of The Way of All Flesh. The whole album is about death, death is like a step on the path of the soul. The mystery surrounding this phenomenon is just so inspiring, and death is the most common thing on earth.

  • Gojira – The Way of All Flesh

    It’s is incredibly rare to find new, fresh and original bands these days and Gojira is unique and talented and totally fills out the description.

    Directly from France with hate, make no mistakes these guys are here to stay. I personally discovered their music with the album From Mars To Sirius and automatically got hooked. Now with TWOAF they brought the game to another level.

    Gojira’s music it’s just too damn original!! It’s a little prog and heavy as hell, melody and depending on the song even sing along choruses.

    Here are some highlight songs from TWOAF: Oroborus, A sight to Behold, Vacuity, Toxic Garbage Island. After listening to those you will experience firsthand what’s Gojira’s all about.

    Great album from a promising band indeed, can wait for the next one.

  • As some other reviewers have indicated, Gojira takes a few listenings in order to be fully comprehended and appreciated. I believe this is a quality of really great music. Even I did not like this album the first time I heard it and I am a huge Gojira fan. I think this initial dislike of Gojira’s music is due to preconceptions of music. If it doesn’t sound similar to something you liked in the past it may produce an initial aversion. But if you give it some time you will begin to pick up on the qualities that make this band and this album great such as their composition, aggression, and technically awesome musicianship. Another thing that makes this album a must buy is that it is a great whole album. Contemporary music today is filled with artists that release one hit single and fill the rest of the album with garbage. Gojira is like Pink Floyd, one of my other most favorite bands, in many ways such as musical innovation and producing great albums that need to be listened to from beginning to end. Do yourself a huge favor and buy this album.

  • Gojira is a band that is very unlike others in a scene where a lot of extreme bands seem to be just carbon copies of other extreme bands. On this particular outing Gojira are finding their voices and wearing their influences a little less on the proverbial sleeve. Well, I first heard of Gojira in an interview that Randy Blythe gave and he highly recomended these french men, so it is to say the least and to make a long story short, I purchased From Mars to Sirius soon after. At first I really couldn’t wrap my head around fMtS and considered it a waste of hard earned cash. I gave the disc a few chances and put it away. Well Gojira didn’t stay put for long because one I was pretty bored and wanted to listen to something different and fMtS was there staring at me, daring me to give it another go and this time it was a truly different experience! From that moment on I was a fan, and much like fMts, The Way of all Flesh is 100% original and a breath of fresh air! There is no other band out there just like them, if you haven’t heard them yet give Gojira a chance! You won’t be disapointed.

  • I couldn’t resist writing a review for this. It’s too good.

    If you’re familiar with Gojira, their older albums, then you might as well just buy this and save time. This album is different from “From Mars to Sirius”, “The Link” and “Terra Incognita”, but it’s still Gojira. It’s unique, songs have vastly different feels to them and they give you a sense of deepening atmosphere with each track, but each one has the familiar Gojira sound and insanity.

    This album is a lot more heavy than their past albums, and whether that’s a good or a bad thing is up to you. For me, it’s a good thing, but obviously, too much change is a bad thing. I think they’ve found a good balance on this album, an extremely heavy album, yet with an incredible uniqueness that only Gojira could accomplish, while not changing so much as to “sell out” or make their past fans disappointed.

    Gojira, this album specifically, is for people who love metal, death metal specifically. For people who like their metal VERY heavy, but yet still have melody and uniqueness in a (mostly) bland genre where most other bands couldn’t even compare. Each track sounds different, without losing their heavy and dark sound. It has melody and industrial elements, and brings it all together into one incredible package.

    If you like any of the descriptions above, then Gojira will be your god.
