France’s Gojira with their new release ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’, have established themselves as one of the most important bands in metal! The album was one of the most anticipated and hyped albums of 2012 and it delivers the promises quite strongly. On ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ they take the heavy progressive sound that they had on ‘The Way of All Flesh’ and streamline it, make it more accessible and more easily digestible to the listener!
Gojira have a unique sound made up by rhythmically complex compositions and the band’s Roadrunner début is no exception. This album similarly to their previous efforts, is still heavy, technical, aggressive, with a haunted atmosphere, however is more melodic, emotional and beautiful. Quite simply it is the perfect merger of brutality and melodic layers! This is truly a brilliant Metal album, a must have for any self respecting Metal fan!
