Gojira are on of the best things happening in metal at the moment in my mind: Progressive Death metal, yes, satanism and creepy content, no.
In fact the French band concern themselves with spirituality and the environment but still kick arse when it comes signature changes at full pelt, cookie monster vocals and enough grunt to get your heart racing at any age (they also recently opened for Metallica in France)
The band is previewing their new album, The Way of All Flesh, due out October 14, posting "Vacuity" on their MySpace page today
"We are super excited to put up this new song, "Vacuity," from The Way of All Flesh," the band says. "We're also proud to announce – in addition to the European dates with In Flames – Gojira will come back to America with them too. It's good to be back! Get ready..."
