French metal giants Gojira just secured a victory in our latest Death Match against Aborted. Gojira are already Death Match Hall of Famers, so with this latest win, the act could become the first band to have multiple songs inducted into the sacred Hall. However, Gojira have one of extreme metal's most popular bands to contend with.
The second matchup in the March Metal Madness Devil Horns Region pits two of the most respected bands to have emerged in metal over the past decade plus. But which one will advance in the battle to determine the best metal album of the 21st Century? Let the debate begin.
Gojira's critically acclaimed album 'L'Enfant Sauvage' dropped in 2012, and the French metal band toured the world to support it. On March 11, a limited edition hardcover photo book will be released that chronicles the more than 150 shows on three continents during the album's tour cycle. The photos were selected by Gojira's Joe and Mario Duplantier.
Gojira have become one of the most respected acts in metal today. While on their latest tour, which happened to be with Slayer (see our recap and photos of the NYC show), we had the opportunity to sit down with frontman Joe Duplantier, who talked about bands he has hit the road with who've left a long-lasting impact on him.
French metal act Gojira spent much of 2013 on the road in promotion of their critically acclaimed 2012 album ‘L’Enfant Sauvage.’ The band started the year off with a headlining tour and rounded off the year on a massive trek with Slayer. 2014 is slated to be a big year for the band, as well, with frontman Joe Duplantier revealing plans for the band to work on a new album.
