Top 20 albums of 2005: 3

Staff review by
Of all the young French bands Gojira is without any doubt the most promising and probably the most talented. Even if their first two albums were already excellent and even if we all know that a third release can be fatidic, it can also be a nice confirmation. It's a confirmation yes, a confirmation of all the potentiality of this amazing combo and it's not really surprising to see that all the media in Europe say that it is one of the best release of the year 2005. "From Mars To Sirius" is a must…

It's not an easy task to try and approach From Mars To Sirius with fresh ears after a decade and a half of insane acclaim heaped onto it. It's commonly accepted as the peak of Gojira's entire career, as well as the album that caused them to be regarded as one of the ultimate competitors for the modern metal throne. And it's not like it's hard to see why; with two incredibly promising albums under their belts, Gojira were steadily becoming more progressive and ambitious with every outing. More atmosphere, more stylistic diversity, and more sonic density were all creeping into the band's sound, so much so that their old Godzilla days sounded like the recordings of a completely different group. It's not like their core intensity was being muted, but instead that it was being twisted and manipulated into several new and exciting genre-shifting creations; and THAT is exactly why From Mars To Sirius succeeds so wildly.

People keep sending me these weird PM's asking me what album I want to be buried with just in case I should die later tonight in mysterious circumstances (the fuck is going on guys?).

Well, lo and behold, one of my favorite all time classics right here. My "Holy Jesus on Ice Skates" meter just keeps going off the charts every time I play this ridiculously awesome record... to use an understatement.

3:35 of "Ocean Planet" is one of my favorite riffs and just in general moments of music ever.

Not my favorite genre but this album kicks ass. Blast at high volume and listen. The drumming is bloody intense and the riffing is like a steel factory. Enjoy this masterpiece.

Ah shit, missed the 15 year anniversary. Always think this came out in 2006
