Metal bands aim for epic. They idealize sonic riffs that reverberate across the land and lay all other music to waste.
So it only seems fitting this uber talented group of metal rockers out of France name themselves after the most oversized
monster ever to walk the earth. Gojira is the Japanese name of the famed gigantic lizard Westerners misheard as Godzilla,
but there's no mistaking the incredible, ear-splitting music of Gojira. These rockers really know how to set a crowd on fire,
and their latest tour promises to leave a trail of scorched earth in its wake. Visit StubHub to get your concert tickets to see these French metal gods live!
There is a resounding mechanical darkness that pervades Gojira's music. All of their tracks are laced with their signature
blend of technical prowess punctuated with swift bouts of heavy percussion that at first feel unexpected and may seem incongruous
and forced but then unfold in brilliant detail and congeal to form a ferocious ensemble not heard anywhere else in the metal
world. While the band has matured and grown over the years, they remain committed to writing and performing the very best
progressive metal rock around, and that commitment comes through in each and every track.
It takes a lot of glue to keep a metal band together. Such hammering music could only be played feverish, passionate musicians,
and that unfortunately can often lead to division within a band that results in disbandment. But that's not the case with
Gojira. Since 1996, the only thing that's changed about this illustrious metal band is the name, and that was only because
of a copyright dispute. To have the same band members for so long speaks to the dedication of the musicians to their craft
and to the band, and such fierce loyalty and deep camaraderie has led Gojira to international stardom as one of the best metal
bands in the business.
The members of Gojira have been at it for more than 16 years, and it shows. Every track on their latest album smacks of
the unity and cohesion that can only come from years and years of practicing together and laboring over every note and arrangement.
All their hard work has paid off. Gojira is a recognized name all over the world as a band at the forefront of metal and looked
to as the trendsetters for the next step in the evolution in the genre. With Gojira tickets from StubHub, you can be there
to hear the future of metal music!
Gojira loves to play metal, pure and simple, but they aren't content to sit on the throne of metal and not wield their
power for good. One of the coolest things about Gojira is that they play for a cause, and not just donating some of their
tour proceeds to charity but imbuing their music with a message. Many of the lyrical themes on the album From Mars to Sirius
focus on the preservation of whales, a cause near and dear to the heart of the band. Gojira write their lyrics with purpose,
and many of their songs are poetic, transcendent, and beautiful. Unlike many metal bands, these guys know how to write, and
it's that brilliance along with their passion for music and life that puts them in a league of their own. Score rock tickets from StubHub to see these truly gifted
