FROM MARS TO SIRIUS
The bruising French outfit known as Gojira (named by a derivation from Godzilla, play a brand of technically proficient death metal whose crushing smorgasbord of sound encompasses everything from blistering death metal to ambient industrial to suffocating doom metal. 12 tracks that run over an hour long may make some listeners wary, however this quartet keep the intensity consistently flowing and the changes jaw-dropping and staggeringly brilliant until the last note of “Global Warming”. To top it all off, this band take on heady issues like environmental misuse to their credit, truly meshing heavy topics with extreme music. If you ever wished an amalgamation of Fear Factory, Morbid Angel, Death, Sepultura, and Meshuggah was to be created, FROM MARS TO SIRIUS is the closest thing that makes that fantasy a reality.
