SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars "Terra Incognita" is the debut full-length studio album by French extreme metal act Gojira. The album was released through Gabriel Records in March 2001.

The music on the album is technically well played and at times progressive death/thrash metal. Gojiraīs music isnīt easily pinned down to one genre tag but Iīd mention artists like Meshuggah, Strapping Young Lad, Fear Factory and Chimaira as some of the influences on the bandīs music. Well...the latter mentioned might not be an influence as they are a contemporary act, but there are quite a few similarities between them. The groove based yet precision sharp riffs and rythms, the aggressive vocals (which in Gojiraīs case lean more towards growling on this particular album) and a powerful and clean sound production.

The material is a bit up and down in quality. Tracks like the opener "Clone" and "Blow Me Away You(niverse)" are really great to my ears, while a track like the more experimental "Satan Is a Lawyer" isnīt that successful to my ears. There are other tracks on "Terra Incognita" which disturb the consistency of the album and there are some pretty unremarkable tracks featured on the album too. So all in all Iīd call "Terra Incognita" a mixed bag. It holds a lot of promise though and if you are familiar with the later more mature material by the band the sound and style on "Terra Incognita" wonīt come as a complete surprise. Itīs just less refined and intriguing than their later material. A 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is deserved.

3 stars Well, here we are: the debut album by an experimental death metal band that has begun to make leaps and bounds and really stick out among others in the genre. If we hear 5-10 years down the road that Gojira is/was a major influence for a lot of metal bands, I wouldn't be too surprised.

This album is where it began. However, some of the genius still has yet to appear. Don't get me wrong though. This is a pretty good album. However it has nothing on their later releases, especially FMtS and TWoAF. The musicians are already competent, which shows very well on this album, especially on one of my favorite songs on here, Satan is a Lawyer. However, I have to agree with other sentiments about this album not being terribly original. The use of old school death metal riffs is always neat to hear from a modern band and is nostalgic for me. But Gojira doesn't bring a whole lot new to the table in this release. I hear too many influences from bands like Meshuggah and some old school death metal bands (I believe a fellow reviewer mentioned Dying Fetus at some point, which I believe is a good example) for me to be incredibly interested. Because of this flaw, a lot of the songs sound quite similar to each other and there isn't much variation. If you want to pick up some Gojira, don't start here. If however you already have some of their better albums and want to help complete your collection, you should enjoy this one as well. I'll give it 3 stars because it does have its moments. But those moments are sometimes few and far between.

2 stars Why so same ? Why so uninteresting, more than one hour of boring, so obnoxious music. It's not even shocking force of terror (add some capital letters), which strikes The Unprepared and sows the seeds of fear amongst the ones that hates something that we can call by umbrella term "death metal" (let it be death ... wait a minute, why it's so boring, isn't it dead ?). However, this fails even to disturb me. To enrich me, to please me, even to move me at all. Hope that their future albums are better, way better. Not that I completely disregards DM(Z), I don't, or more like not at all, because I like some of it. It's not majority, it's small minority, but I do. And this didn't happen to nominate into this "win" group.

2(+), oh kay ? Music is boring and dull, providing basic Death Metal pattern with no spicing flavour that makes it interesting. Sigh, it's like rating punk here. Oh, they started to growl right now, great, so unpredictable.

3 stars 6/10

"Terra Incognita" is an overall successful mix of technicality, heaviness, and aggression.

Gojira are a French Progressive Death Metal band that have a loving fan base, thanks to albums like "From Mars To Sirius" and "The Way Of All Flesh", both of them regarded as modern Death Metal/ Progressive Metal classics. Before their rise to recognition, "Terra Incognita" was released, back in the year 2000, overshadowed by so much more brilliant music despite being an overall decent listen.

The level of maturity in this debut album is already quite impressive: the production is top notch, the riffs are nice and heavy, some even worth of an album like "The Way Of All Flesh". There is a flavor of Nu Metal/Alternative Metal in the concept and image of this album: it almost feels like a much heavier, technical, and fierce version of a Sepultura album, also because of it's Latin American mysticism-inspired lyrics. The heaviness of the album is what would turn on metalheads: the vocals are also extremely brute, and they truly feel shouted from the inner guts of singer Joe Duplianter. This in-your-face take is accentuated with a strong, technical feeling: the riffs can be extremely fast, or heavily syncopated to the point where calling it Progressive Metal is more than a safe thing to do.

The flaws this album has, however, are a few, the first one is the one that mainly kills some more potential entertainment this album could have had: it doesn't feature as much variety as the following albums by the band. You might enjoy quite a bit the first half hour or so, but then, it's not hard to notice, eventually, how the musical diversities from song to song aren't very many, making the listen a rather monotonous ride. By the end of the album, the listener can easily feel sick of that kind of music, and would wish to lay off it a bit.

Some of the songs here though are extremely enjoyable for one who enjoys this kind of music, starting from the straight-to-the-point opener, "Clone". "Lizard Skin" and "Blow Me Away You(niverse)" are great concerts pieces that give further blood rushing in the listener's veins. But the best song is easily the closer, "In The Forest", the most fiercely technical piece here, added with a potent dose of heaviness.

"Terra Incognita" has some standout moments and tracks that could have become Gojira classics, but as a whole, it stretches out a little too much and doesn't offer much more than aggression. Still something worth while listening to, especially if you're a fan of the band, and want to hear their earlier days.
