4 stars I'm not really sure why this disc is on progarchives. I can't really call it prog metal as much as I can call it extreme heavy metal. This being said, there are some really neat things going on in this album. The vocals are mostly scream, so if you're not a fan of that, you won't like this one. The music sounds very heavy and distorted, but what makes it interesting to me is the music's ability to make you think that a melody is present, even when its not being sung. This is thanks to the guitars and their melodic lines that blend right into the style of music. For the prog enthusiast, there are a few tempo and rhythmic changes that occur in the album, and for the metal head, there is plenty to love about this one. There are some great guitar sound effects that add to the personality of the music and make it sound playful at times despite its obvious heaviness. I really enjoy this cd for what it is - metal that has some actual thought put behind it. It deals with the whole global warming thing, and has some really cool whale sounds going on. Gojira will be a very interesting metal band, and if you like your metal very heavy with (very)subtle prog influences, this is probably a cd you'll enjoy. If this was a metal site, this would get a perfect 5 stars, but for its lack of much prog, I can only give it 4.
