Gojira – From Mars to Sirius

From Mars to Sirius

Gojira’s The Way of All Flesh was named #3 in last year’s No Funeral Top 10, but this record is a real treat. From Mars to Sirius was the breakthrough album that placed Gojira at the metal foreground.

The Faceless stole their robo-vocals from this album. I’m not saying that Gojira invented this vocal style (wasn’t it Zapp & Roger?), but the way The Faceless use the robo-vocals on Planetary Duality, it’s clear that they lifted it from this album.

From Mars to Sirius is more of Gojira’s soaring-melody, Meshuggah tech-metal. It’s just as good as The Way of All Flesh. My educated guess is that, starting with From Mars to Sirius, Gojira is in the middle of producing a run of classic albums, ala Metallica and Slayer. They’re not done yet.
