French metal juggernaut Gojira is gearing up for the release of its long-awaited new album and has just dropped the news that it’s coming sooner than we had expected. At the end of a “Studio Sessions” teaser video posted to the band’s Facebook page, which you can see below, the words “New Album Spring 2016” appear, meaning that the band is apparently much further along in the process than had been previously hinted at.

This is excellent news for all of us Gojira fanatics who have been waiting nearly 4 years since the release of the band’s most recent record L’Enfant Sauvage in 2012. That record sold over 11,000 copies in its first week of release in the U.S. alone and would cement the band’s status as one of the most important bands in the modern metal scene.

French extreme metal merchants Gojira are at the very forefront of new millennial metal. The band’s extremely low tunings, percussive guitar work, and complex polyrhythms, coupled with lyrics centered around ecology and human decimation of the planet have set them apart from their peers.

Formed in 1996 and known as Godzilla for their first five years of existence, Gojira were forced to change to the original Japanese spelling of their moniker after the threat of a trademark infringement suit. The band have produced five of the most important albums in all of metal over the last 15 years. Their most recent being the crucially lauded 2012 masterpiece L’Enfant Sauvage. This week’s Massive Metal Monday track is from that album. Here is Gojira with the official video for “Explosia.”

Adam Frazier reviews Gareth Edwards' GODZILLA

“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.”

– J. Robert Oppenheimer

In 1954, Ishirō Honda transformed the trauma of war into art with Godzilla, a science fiction film about a gigantic radioactive beast that rises from the depths of Tokyo Bay. The primordial force of nature firebombs Tokyo with its atomic breath, leveling the city and killing thousands. Honda created a walking metaphor for the nuclear devastation of World War II – a fantastic, out of this world creation that could embody the fears of an entire nation.

Godzilla is the granddaddy of kaiju cinema, but it’s also a very poignant and mournful drama – a Japanese film made at a time when the country was still reeling from the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as H-bomb testing in the Pacific. Since then, Godzilla has become an international icon of devastation, spawning nearly thirty sequels. The King of Monsters endures because he is the perfect conduit through which to exorcise the predominant fears of our time.

Akira Takarada & Gareth Edwards Godzilla

Fans of Godzilla and monster movies in general couldn’t help but instantly think of Roland Emmerich’s 1998 disasterpiece of a remake when it was revealed that a new reboot was on the way.

But thankfully things appear to be going in the right direction with the reboot as far as casting is concerned, and the latest actor to be confirmed for the movie brings with them some positive vibes that the reboot will be very faithful to the original Godzilla movie, titled Gojira.

Legendary Pictures has released a new image via the Twitter of reboot director Gareth Edwards and Akira Takarada, one of the stars of the 1954 original movie.
