Editorial Reviews

This French quartet had surpassed themselves with their last album, their third, called From Mars To Sirius. It showed an even more adventurous and innovative metal band that keeps on hammering some of the most memorable, chunky riffs and groovy arrangements probably like a bastard child of Morbid Angel, Meshuggah and Killing Joke. Here with this new Live CD from a 2003 show at the Theatre Barbet in Bordeaux, France, Gojira confirm they're one of the strongest live Metal bands on the planet!

This album is great, and the only reason it's my least favorite Gojira album is because of the production. It sounds good, but not as good as their other 2 albums. They even remastered it and it sounded a little better, but still a little thin for a band this heavy! Needs way more bass, and a better sounding Kick for sure. Anyway, this album has less of a vibe than the other two in my opinion. All their albums have a concept type feel to them, or motif. This album feels more like a bunch of separate songs than a concept album if that makes any sense. The vocalist experiments on a few songs with certain vocals that can be a turn off to some, almost silly sounding, but after a few listens you get used to them and they are great. The music is some of the heaviest I've ever heard. For any of you Mastodon, Isis, Neurosis junkies, or old school Death Metal junkies, check this band out, they are AMAZING.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thinking man's brutal metal album August 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD
At some point between Bolt Thrower's grindcore, Godflesh's industrial-grind (circa, say, "Hymns"), Nile and/or Grave's death metal, and latter-day Sepultura's thrash, Meshuggah's math, Mastodon's prog, and High on Fire's doom metal lands Gojira's second record, "The Link." Sophisticated songwriting, unorthodox song structures, lengthy instrumental sections, meaningful, Fear Factory-ish lyrics, and eclectic/foreign culture-inspired experimentations are all some of the unique tools Gojira used here, on the follow-up to 2001's debut "Terra Incognita." Oh, and did I mention excellent musicianship? Guitarists Christian Andreu and Joe Duplantier are entirely capable of crafting riffs on top of great, inventive, and unforgettable riffs -- both of the acoustic and thrashy, downtuned variety. (The former is used effectively as a contrast, making the latter sound even more mean and punishing.) The riffs are also laid on top of a rock solid rhythm section: Jean-Michel Labadie lays down steady, grooving bass lines, and the drumming of Mario Duplantier (Joe's brother) is pretty impeccable. Sure, Mario can play thrash beats and blast beats like no one's business; but he also keeps things interesting by frequently tossing in original and complex fills (including melodic percussion, odd time signatures, snare runs, and well-placed cymbal crashes). All of which makes "The Link" one very dynamic, complex, interesting, and epic album which simultaneously manages to be both an amalgam of all things heavy AND quite a few IQ points more intelligent than probably what the average metal fan is used to hearing. How's that for an original idea?

These eleven tracks are the sound of this band hitting on all cylinders, and no two of them sound the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! January 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I prefer listening to the music by albums. For Gojira I own almost all of their albums and I love all of them. To me it's like art appreciation. I don't just each song or passage separately and try to perceive Gojira's albums as creative testaments rather than products for consumption or dismembering.

4.0 out of 5 stars This one a bit different..but still great May 16, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Having bought 2 different Gojira cd and loving them...i bought this one.
Quite a surprise....this CD is less hyper than the others but still offers great
music.... At least they are not just a Heavy Metal band with songs all at the
same tempo as other band...they have a great mix of music...Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal Perfection January 29, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you have never heard Gojira before, do yourself a favor and get this album (or any Gojira album, for that matter). In my opinion, Gojira has created some of the heaviest music ever recorded. The musicianship is truly top-notch and just a joy to experience. I'm not going to go in depth with a song-by-song synopsis; you can read that in other reviews. 'The Link' is an album that has many memorable moments, catchy riffs/rhythms and incredibly precise drumming. The vocals sound "death metal-esque"(in a good way), but are often varied in tone and style and always seem to fit the music.

I stumbled upon this band 4 months ago, and they re-ignited my passion for heavy/extreme music (they are just so 'tight' musically). Needless to say, I have since purchased all 4 of their studio albums (this one is their 2nd, and possibly my fav) and they all are excellent. In short, "The Link" does what any great 'metal' album is intended to do- melt your face off and leave you, the listener, wanting more.

Gojira's albums:

Terra Incognita (2001)
The Link (2003)
From Mars to Sirius (2005)
The Way of All Flesh (2008)
