I saw 'em not long ago with Hatesphere.

It was the heaviest show I think i've ever seen, they're so tight and just have this crushing tone. They're only Drop D too O.o

Only Drop D? I would have thought Drop C or lower.

From Mars to Sirius is a killer album. Global Warming, Backbone, and Flying Whales > all of j00.

The vocals for Death Of Me kind of ruined the song for me. They just seem so out of place. But Where Dragons Fall is an amazing song. I'm not really into the band but I love that song.

They're okay. For a Meshuggah-ish band, they're great.

Except Gojira have something Meshuggah don't (i.e. melody).

Ocean Planet is the first track, and it pretty much is one killer pounding riff, so probably.

Just discovered these guys, fucking ownage. Seriously, very, very good band, similar to Strapping Young Lad/Meshuggah kinda mix.

for new listeners you should check out the songs Love? and Embrace the World from terra incognita and the link albums respectively, those are my fav gojira songs

I am glad to see that you hate everyone and not just Christians.

Love? Another reason they're similar to SYL then... (I've only listened to a handful of songs, mainly their new stuff)

what is a good beginning album you guys would recommend for a gojira newb


Again, you got caught a second time..
First, scroll up and find a thread which is called (Rules or smth, righ?), read them and then try not to make any mistakes cause people are kinda bad and naughty in here

Try in the recomendations thread if you want to be recomended.

I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.

I've been very impressed by the new album. I'm a new fan of Gojira, but it is evident how good they are.

I'm looking forward to getting the new CD.

Has anyone seen them live?

Yes.

And they sound just as good live, especially on pinch harmonic riffs.
#72

I saw these guys live and i thought thusly:

rubbish. absoluteley tuneless junk.

your average gojira song consists of little more than palm muting a chord (usually the open string dropped chord) for long stretches, usually with some sort of rhythm, followed by a pinch harmonic squeal. Their singer is monotone, andd a boring mono tone at that. their only saving gace is the interesting melodies that sometimes grace their songs. unfortunately these usually go on for too long or not long enough before that power chord comes back.

Don't get me wrong, these are not the ramblings of an anti-metal fool, I was listening to soulfly on the way to work this morning and my current most listened to bands include Soilwork, Opeth and In Flames.

And lets face it, Gojira are French, and the French have never really had anything to contribute to metal, or for that matter, many other genres.
#74
^You're obviously missing the appeal of this band. It has nothing to do with their melodies or 'tunes'.

It's the fact that they are the sonic equivalent to...



I know people are subject to opinion, but the draw of them is the same of that as bands like SYL and Meshuggah.

They make you want to bang your head until it dislodges from your spine.

^^It appears you are looking for the wrong things in Gojira. If you are looking for a Soilwork/Opeth/In Flames sound then you won't like them, because they sound different to them.

Gojira paly in Standard D.


I repeat


Gojira play in standard D.


Tabs are wrong.


Proof is is their song Unicorn, the harmonics at the 12th fret on high E wouldn't make D notes if guitars were in drop d. So its reasonable to assume the other songs are in D standard as well.
