Biography

There are multiple artists called Gojira;

1) Gojira is a metal band from Bayonne, France. Their lyrics focus on life, ecology, and spiritual themes. They were formed in 1996 by brothers Joe Duplantier (vocals and lead guitar) and Mario Duplantier (drums), Christian Andreu (guitar) and Alexandre Cornillon (bass guitar). Cornillon left the band in 2001 and Jean-Michel Labadie became their bass player. Genres that they have been associated with over their career include , , and .

They had initially named their group Godzilla, but due to legal constraints had to change their name. They therefore chose to re-name their band Gojira - the original Japanese version of their name (in Japanese Gojira means gorilla-whale or gorilla the size of a whale). Some of the content of their music is focused on the ecological effects of human activity on the Earth.

Joe and Mario Duplantier also play in an experimental metal band called Empalot.
In 2007 Joe also became the bass player for former Sepultura members Max and Igor’s new project, Cavalera Conspiracy.

2) Canadian powerviolence band existing from 1996-1998 based in Toronto, Ontario.

3) Romanian DJ / producer

    Esoteric Surgery is such a good song. I wish they would play it live.

    "L'Enfant Sauvage" Is not my album. I hope the new will be more kickass, but more oldschool. From what i see in the interview it might be just that. I just hope i can see them live for once. I know them for so long, but they rarely come to Belgium :(

    Yep. new album is set for the next year, and they're gonna nail it again. I can't wait, that's a bloody hard job to trump the L'Enfant Sauvage though.

    Согласен с Bad_4_4_Santa на счет распределения альбомов по крутости, но про умягчение звучания, по-моему, он какую-то фигню написал.

    Can't take a nap at the end of the day? Ran out of nyquil? Have no fear, Gojira is here to put you to bed with their sleep inducing take on metal. LISTEN NOW...unless you want the musical equivalent of caffeine.

    Рвут конечно не подеццки, как приятно их было открыть для себя год назад, очень круто услышать что то свежее, незаеженное. Пока что их вышка - From Mars to Sirius, видно они нашли свою тему, нет ни одной проходной песни плюс звук на этом альбоме мне больше всего нравится, затем поставлю The Way of All Flesh, но тут уже в записи нет того жира, все более прилизанно, по этому и на втором ,а так тут тоже для меня нет проходных песен, и если бы не это более мягкое звучание, то они бы были наравне, а так, ну и на третье поставлю The Link - тут они еще ищут себя ,звук еще не такой сочный, как будет на Марсе, да и не все песни для меня слушабельны, ну точнее все, но видно, что еще сыровато. L'Enfant Sauvage - тут звук совсем стал мягким и мне нравится альбом только на половину, а точнее первые 8 песен ,потом как то не то уже, тяжело идет, ну а Terra Incognita - там есть, как гениальные темы, так и совсем проходняк, тут они нащупывают основы и это чувствуется. Ждем в Питере, будем рвать)
