4 stars Staying roughly within the same vain as their last offering 'From Mars To Sirius', The Way Of All Flesh, kinda...sorta starts where the last leaves off the very very heavy guitars are still there and its still very powerfull, the one thing i didnt really like about this album was that it just sounded like a band craving commercial success (example being the addition of Lamb Of God's singer Randy Blythe in the song ALL THE TEARS) but brushing that wee glitch aside its a decent effort most of the songs are very solid with the exception of maybe 2 or 3 sounding very similar. The opening track OROBORUS is fantastic displaying an awsome tapping riff and some really cool open string ideas that are quite original, the awsomeness does indeed continue for the next 2 or 3 songs through to THE SILVER CORD then i think it starts to slightly go downhill as a lot of the songs just start sounding to alike, although i love the song THE ART OF DYING, ESOTERIC SURGERY and WOLF DOWN THE EARTH. Again the production of this album is amazing if not even better than their last effort and again a A for their musicanship, this is just a real solid record, plain and simple;

Oroborus - 10/10 Toxic Garbage Island - 10/10 A Sight to Behold - 10/10 Yama's Messengers - 10/10 The Silver Cord - 9/10 All the Tears - 7/10 Adoration for None - 8/10 The Art of Dying- 10/10 Esoteric Surgery - 9/10 Vacuity - 8/10 Wolf Down the Earth - 9/10 The Way of All Flesh - 9/10

MY CONCLUSION? another great effort form Gojira, this French band have really grown into be something to look out for with future albums, but for now id suggest checking this one out, its great :)
