Biography

Joseph Duplantier (born October 19, 1976) is a French musician who is the guitarist and vocalist of Gojira and the bassist of Cavalera Conspiracy.

Joe Duplantier's influences include bands such as Meshuggah, Metallica, Morbid Angel and Sepultura.

Max Cavalera and Igor Cavalera initially asked Jean-Michel Labadie, bassist of Gojira, to do bass duties for their band, Cavalera Conspiracy; however, Labadie was busy with prior commitments, including Gojira. Instead, Joe Duplantier ended up being the band's bassist. Joe Duplantier has stated that Gojira is his main priority and that is the reason he has not done extensive touring with Cavalera Conspiracy.

Joe Duplantier has been in two bands with his brother, Mario Duplantier; one being his main project, Gojira, and the other being Empalot.

Some of the lyrical themes of Gojira reflect Duplantier's personal beliefs in preserving the environment. He is part of the environmental corporation Sea Shepherd as a result.
