Jun 17, 2016Magma hardly represents the epitome of the avant-garde in today’s metal scene, but in offering a concise anthology of accessible, immediately engaging songs that nonetheless manage to redefine the edge of the commercial envelope, Gojira set the bar for what arena metal could be five years from now, ten years from now... whenever the more casual heavy metal demographic finally catches up.
Jun 17, 2016The change in musical course--and the fact that Joe is singing more and screaming less these days--will probably disappoint (or even anger) a certain percentage of the band's devoted fans. But for those who can appreciate a tightly focused hard rock album infused with emotions that are often just as heavy as its riffs, Magma offers a listening experience that is as rewarding as it is therapeutic.

It’s complicated in it’s delivery and there is so much going on sometimes it gets too much. However, on repeated listening, from start to finish, you will find something new with each listen. Be it a subtle guitar tone or a crushing bassline, that’s the beauty of Magma. This is a record of true heavy metal exploration. Not confined by boundaries, not sticking to the formula. GOJIRA have crafted a truly remarkable record with Magma, one that perfectly represents just what this band is about; destructive beauty.… Expand

Jun 17, 2016After four long years and death of Joe's and Mario's mother, the band tried to take an another approach on the more progressive than groovyAfter four long years and death of Joe's and Mario's mother, the band tried to take an another approach on the more progressive than groovy style, and there's no denial that you will either love it, or absolutely loathe their latest record.
However, if you have nothing against Gojira's more experimental sounds (take "Born in Winter" off their previous album "L'Enfant Sauvage" as an example), this album is a must-own, as it has barely any weak moments (assuming that you are not a pure "only technical-death metal" fanatic, in that case only about half of the album might be any decent for your listening pleasure), astonishingly great clean vocals mixed with some of their signature riff-age make "Magma" an another great experience, just like any other Gojira's previous releases.… Expand
Jun 17, 2016The groove of Pantera. Intelligent and intense songwriting. Lyrics talking about Mother Nature and personal turmoil. Simple, no-nonsenseThe groove of Pantera. Intelligent and intense songwriting. Lyrics talking about Mother Nature and personal turmoil. Simple, no-nonsense muscularity to the riffs. Added experimentation with clean vocals and chants and some other musical elements. A great gateway album for non-metalheads and a delight for the hardcore alike.… Expand
