2001 Debut Remastered and Available on Vinyl for the First Time with Live Bonus Tracks!
It has always been hard to put a tag on Gojira, one of France's most extreme bands the country's musical pallet has ever known. But then again, the band has never really sought out such a tag, instead letting the music do the talking, preferring introspection and intelligence over preconceived notions and preexisting tags. Ever since their 1996 formation in town of Bayonne in the southwest of France, Gojira has been an ever-evolving experiment in extreme metal ultimately built upon a worldly, ever-conscious outlook with roots firmly-planted in an environmentally-conscious, new age mentality.
Originally dubbed Godzilla, after the scaly, green film star with an equally huge reputation as the newfound band's sound, the brothers Duplantier – guitarist/vocalist Joe and drummer Mario – and fellow Frenchmen Michel Labadie on bass and Christian Andreu on guitar, quickly released several demos, ultimately changing the band's name and independently releasing the first Gojira album, Terra Incognita in 2001, offering up a brief glimpse into the giant Gojira would eventually become through persistent hard work and years of toiling in the metal underground.
Now remastered and for the very first time available on vinyl with three exclusive live bonus tracks, Gojira's Terra Incognita album, seen by their fans as the band's ultimate classic, is undoubtedly a must have!
