5 stars French Tech/Death-metal act Gojira just keep on showing off more and more quality with each passing production it seems. After the masterful display of creative songwriting on From Mars to Sirius, Gojira are back with a new release that makes you wonder what other progressive bands of the genre are doing. Forget the polyrythmics and insane tempos of other progressive acts, Gojira's strength lies not in technicality or complex song structers, Gojira seems to build their entire musical foundation upon solid rock.

While being brilliantly played all through, and drummer Mario Duplantier underlining once more why he may be one of the foremost drummers on the metal stage at this time, the strength lies in the brutal simplicity that Gojira delivers it's package of mind blowing metal riffage. There's numerous amounts of really fingerbending details in the music, but it's delivered in such a tightly sealed package you'll never drift away from the almost carnal brutality of Gojira.

There's nothing much more to be said about the album, just get it, wheter you are interested in metal or not. This is the record to get 2008, another record in the discography of a band that will most likely soon be legendary.
