Gojira  


Gojira (apparently the original Japanese name for Godzilla, as Godzilla itself was the former name of this band before copyright reasons forced a change) is arguably one of France's brightest stars of the last few years. From Mars To Sirius, the band's fourth album rleased in 2005, mixes Mastodon-styled heaviness with a bit of Isis subtlety as well as some technical riffing a la Meshuggah to good effect, brutally heavy yet not oppressively so. At their best ("Flying Whales", for example) they're almost untouchable, showing a mature songwriting skill rare for a band of this style. A promising band who may be still on the rise.
