Gojira [music]

Entry updated 3 May 2024. Tagged: Music.

French metal band formed in 1996, until 2001 under the name Godzilla (see Gojira), by guitarist and vocalist Joe Duplantier (1976-    ), guitarist Christian Andreu (1976-    ), bassist Jean-Michel Labadie (1974-    ) and drummer Mario Duplantier (1981-    ). The excellent From Mars to Sirius (2003) is a concept album following an exodus to space after global warming (see Climate Change) and Pollution have left Earth uninhabitable, accompanied by flying cetaceans who are also escaping our planet. The movement is also from War (Mars) to peace (the Star Sirius). We also learn that life on Earth was created by Aliens 400,000 years ago. Within the framework of the "technical death metal" subgenre, the album impressively combines sheer power with melodic heft and some more lyrical passages. [CWa]
