Gojira (a Japanese pronunciation of "Godzilla") is a French metal band with an environmentalist twist. This is their 4th album and I love it.
I can't even do this album justice by describing it. It must be heard. If you like metal, Gojira is the poster child.
I also had the amazing opportunity to see them play at the tiny "The Studio at Webster Hall" here in NYC last month (300 people max!) and it was an amazing show. Over the last 2 years, Gojira has easily crept into one of my favorite bands of all time, and their latest effort only solidified that.
Stand out tracks (I do love the entire album- all 5 stars):
