French metal masters Gojira have unleashed a punishing video for 'Explosia,' the opening track to the band's 2012 full-length, 'L'Enfant Sauvage.' The performance featured in the 'Explosia' video was taken from Gojira's recent performance at New York City's Webster Hall on Aug. 14.

American metalheads had been anxiously awaiting the return of Gojira, who were originally set to join Lamb of God and Dethklok on tour throughout North America. Unfortunately, due to Randy Blythe's Czech incarceration, the tour was canceled much to the disdain of fans. To make up for these canceled dates, Gojira were able to play a small number of club shows before heading up to Canada for the Heavy T.O. and Heavy MTL festivals.

The new video for 'Explosia' captures the pure heaviness of Gojira's live performance, which was recounted by Loudwire in our coverage of Gojira's Aug. 9 show at New York City's Santos Party House. As our reporter noted, "If the overwhelming energy and aggression wasn’t enough to make to make the night a memorable one, the band’s chemistry onstage was undeniable as each member interacted and smiled face to face with fans."

Get ready for a pummeling of the senses as you check out Gojira's video for 'Explosia.'
