The French band Gojira have teamed up with Fredrik Thordendal of Meshuggah and Devin Townsend to release the first single off their forthcoming EP. Listen to it below.
The song titled "Of Blood And Salt" was included on a bonus CD that shipped with the newest release of Metal Hammer magazine.
Gojira will be donating the proceedings of the EP to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
Gojira's new EP, the proceeds of which will be given to the Sea Shepherd anti-whaling organization, has been in the works for a while now. So long in fact that we almost questioned whether it was ever going to come out. Well, the EP is still indeed alive. Though we still don't know when it will exactly be released, we now have our first taste of the album.
Supposedly, the entire EP is filled with a bunch of guests. So if Gojira were able to get Townsend and Thordendal for one track, imagine what other guess appearances they were able to get! But in case you need to hear these three elite metal musicians, you should make sure to pick up Devin Townsend's "Deconstruction" (one of two albums he's releasing on June 21 via InsideOut). Thordendal is featured on the title track (along with GWAR's Oderus Urungus), while Gojira frontman Joe Duplantier appears on the song "Sumeria".
