Gojira are by no means a 'copycat' band.
In short, From Mars To Sirius is an outstanding album & hard to beat.
Moving onto the music itself, it is technical to the extreme, absolutely stunning riffing, tremendous vocals and thundering drums.
This will not be to everyones tastes-the vocals are harsh at times and this is quite a rough-and tumble record. However, for lovers of death and/or heavy metal this band is well worth checking out. A great prospect for the future.
They remind me a little of Strapping Young Lad, especially with their wall'o'sound approach to layering the songs.
The drummer is simply increadible. He is like a machine in his precision.
For me, there is a pair of tracks towards the end of the album that sum Gojira up.
The track From Mars... is haunting and makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. It's followed by what can only be described as a sledgehammer to the face in the form of ...To Sirius.
This really is technical metal at it's best.
Highly recommended to fans of Mastodon, SYL or Meshuggah.
The album opens with the blistering ocean planet which builds and then lets loose with chugging riffs that mastodon would be proud of,indeed mastodon are an influence to this band,but thats not to say that gojira are a tribute band,its just that if you are gonna sound like someone then mastodon is that band.the songs backbone and from the sky follow and you cant ignore the bands message and the sheer riff after headbanging riff,they have millions of them in each song,the vocals are easy to make out so for those that say they are death metal,i argue no to that belief.Unicorn follows and it is an instrumental that includes the sound of whales either in pain or communicating but in keeping with the albums tone i suggest they are in pain!
The band themselves are french and have been around a few years steadily building a fanbase and this album should bring them further glory,their heaviness is stunning but yet they arent overbearing,fans of a million bands would enjoy this,like i said mastodon are an influence and i have to agree with references to meshuggah and strapping young lad,the drumming is frantic but gojira have the ability to slow it down and give us a chance to reflect and breathe again and the song builds and then we are off again,the song to sirius will leave you smiling and mournful in the same moment,this is music for those who want to hear somnething just that little bit different,give this a chance and you will understand the passion in music once again
Huge, crushing, Mantra Metal is what Gojira bring us. Angular, non-melodic rhythms played with stunning mathematical precision, backed by jackhammer drumming. The result is like a meditation on THE RIFF. Very catchy, and should stimulate areas of the cerebellum usually only reached by bands like MORBID ANGEL,( early )KING'S X, and Monotheist-era CELTIC FROST. Actually, they wouldn't seem out of place on a concert bill with any of those bands, and could also share a stage with Dream Theater or Alchemist, too. Progressive, but very, very heavy.
