GojiraListen - From Mars to Sirius 2005
8.8
Heavy Prog Extreme Metal
This is extremely cool. A really extreme kind of music, with sometimes quite brutal double bass drumming, heavy, thrash metal guitars riffing and growling/screaming vocals ... but it's not really aggressive, I'd rather call it hypnotic and even avant-garde to some extent. Meshuggah are an obvious influence - but more in terms of sound and texturing (Nothing/Catch 33) than complexity. Some parts also remind me of Devin Townsend ... sudden outbursts of heaviness followed by epic/majestic textural parts.

The album deals with issues like global warming ... saving the oceans, which explains the whale on the cover. If you can tolerate the heavy parts and the screaming then listening to this album from beginning to end can really take you on a fascinating journey through time, space ... and water.
