Gojira: L'Enfant Sauvage
This week ween the long-awaited release of L'Enfant Sauvage, the new album by world-class French rock act Gojira.
The band's career so far has earned them the respect of an international audience, I'm certain this will put them in the first division of the rock scene.
While a rock act through and through, they've remained true to the scene but continued to push its boundaries, incorporating elements from across sub gentres at the extreme end of the spectrum.
While they appeal to fans of thrash or death metal, their music is shot through with a progressive and experimental attitude.
The band are originally from Bayonne, and have been active since '96, changing their name from Godzilla in 2001. L'Enfant Sauvage is their fifth album.
This live track is from the deluxe edition of l'Enfant Sauvage, and was recorded in 2009 at the Les Eurockéennes festival. The track originally came from their 2008 album The Way of All Flesh.
