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 mustů

13.06.2011 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.

I'm with Willy on this one. I gave it a handful of listens and never thought of it as anything better than background noise.

And not the good kind of background noise. The annoying kind where you're begging for silence. Or to be listening to something else.

Anyway great album.

Rating: 7 The breakdown on Backbone is what metal is all about. Straight up makes me want to headbang myself into a coma.

Rating: 10 Absolutely perfect. There's not much more I can say about it, there's not a track on here that I don't find astounding. One thing confuses me though. Why is this band not classified as sludge metal/progressive sludge metal? They sound very sludgy to me.

I find their sound to be far too technical to be considered sludge. I can hear a similarity though, particularly in the longer tracks. That's where the progressive aspect comes in, they bend the typical death metal structures to unusual proportions which I'd wager is where that sludge like tone is coming from. That said I'd probably call it groove in sound rather than sludge.
