French Environmental Metal
#1
I got a recommendation last that I wanted to pass on, it is for fan of metal.


Gojira is a French progressive metal band formed in 1996 in Bayonne, France. The band was known as Godzilla until 2001. The band is comprised of Joe Duplantier on vocals and guitar, his brother Mario Duplantier on drums, Christian Andreu on guitar and Jean-Michel Labadie on bass. Since its formation, Gojira has had no changes in lineup (particularly rare for an underground band), and has released four studio albums, one live album, one single, and one DVD. The band is known for their environment-related lyrics.

Gojira's sound is not easily classifiable[2] as they blend several styles.[18] Genres that have been associated with Gojira are death metal (technical death metal in particular),[19] thrash metal, progressive metal and groove metal. They are often compared to bands like Meshuggah, Mastodon, Sepultura, Neurosis and Morbid Angel.[20][21] Gojira have been influenced by heavy metal artists such as Death, Morbid Angel, Meshuggah, Metallica, Tool, and Neurosis.[21][22]
Gojira plays a technical and rhythmic style of heavy metal with precision drumming, unusual rhythm patterns, start-and-stop riffs, and breakdowns. Gojira has also been known to incorporate textured atmospheric elements and instrumental songs into their music.[4] Gojira songs have progressive and uncommon song structures and are devoid of standard verse, chorus, verse song writing.[4] The vocal style is somewhere between a hardcore punk shout and a death growl. Often at times, death metal growls and clean vocals are mixed to create an aggressive but melodic effect.[18][21]
The members of the band were raised in Bayonne, a city on the south west coast of France (French Basque Country). The surrounding scenic countryside and rugged coastline inspired Gojira's interest in nature and the earth. Gojira uses its lyrics to spread its spiritual beliefs and concerns for the environment
I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music
