About

Ever since the 1996 formation in town of Bayonne in the southwest of France, GOJIRA has been an ever-evolving experiment in extreme metal ultimately built upon a worldly, ever-conscious outlook with roots firmly-planted both in the hippie movement and an environmentally-conscious, new age mentality. Originally dubbed Godzilla, after the scaly, green film star with an equally huge reputation as the newfound band’s sound, [they] quickly released several demos, ultimately changing the band’s name and independently releasing the first GOJIRA album, Terra Incognita, offering up a brief glimpse into the giant GOJIRA would eventually become through persistent hard work and years of toiling in the metal underground.
