Album Review: Gojira – L’Enfant Sauvage

It’s hard to judge the scale of support Gojira have in 2012. Opening for metal giants Metallica and critically acclaimed albums are the norm for the French act, but their technical sludge metal is geared more towards fans of Meshuggah than any thrash metal titan. The acclaim will just keep coming with fifth album ‘L’Enfant […]

Album Review: Meshuggah – Koloss

For the uninitiated, Meshuggah are heavy. Not just Machine Head heavy; we’re talking kick-you-in-the-balls-and-you’re-gonna-like-it heavy. While, with their 8-stringed guitars, they may have inspired the tech-metal offshoot genre djent, Meshuggah themselves have much more in common with extreme metal and, at times, post-metal. Aptly named opener ‘I Am Colossus’ just about demolishes everything in its […]
