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!

Format: Audio CD
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.

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.

Gojira is one of those bands that when people ask “what are they like” there is no easy answer because they are hard to classify due to their uniqueness. I will simply say (in my never to be humble opinion) that if you like Coroner, Helmet, Melvins, Believer, Massive Audio Nerve, Snapcase, or Philm you should check them out. Not that I am comparing them to any of these other bands, that would be ‘apples and oranges’, but rather that if your tastes include the eclectic they are worth a moment of your time.

I knew of Gojira by name only until they were coming on tour with Mastodon, since I was going to that show I figured I should check Gojira out. One taste and I bought every CD except the ever elusive Terra Incognita (currently selling for $85+ used, REALLY!?). As impressed as I was with their CDs and the live video of them online, it all paled in comparison to seeing them live. I will just say that I will NEVER miss them live again! Totally Savage!

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.
