Currently on the road to promote their upcoming album, Once More ‘Round the Sun, the Atlanta foursome not to be trifled with, Mastodon, take the most eco-friendly (and heaviest) band in the world, Gojira, and the six-piece stranglehold from Norway, Kvelertak on tour with some of the most bone-crushing riffs to take the stage.

Please enjoy a note from our photographer and a slew of photos behind the cut!

Nothing super special here. It’s just really slow today. Please enjoy this 8-bit version of Gojira‘s “Global Warming” from 2006’s From Mars To Sirius by YouTuber DominantDuck.

Alright, listen up. Apparently there’s some mass confusion about acoustic versions among artists, why you do them, and, more importantly, why you’re doing them badly. So badly, in fact, that you’re straight up ruining your own song, both in acoustic and in demeaning the original version by proxy. You need to stop, because you’re an idiot.

gojira-born-in-winter

Though the album is nearly two years old now, French metallers Gojira still see it fit to support L’Enfant Sauvage with content. That delightfully brings us a brand new music video for the second-to-last track on the album, ‘Born in Winter,’ and it is absolutely rife with deep imagery and stuff that probably doesn’t make a lot of sense at a glance.

Please enjoy!

You guys remember HYPNO5E, the French art-metal band melding Gojira-like guitar work and cinematic ambiance before that whole djent thing caught on? It’s only been two years since their last effort Acid Mist Tomorrow, which is about right for an album cycle, but it feels much longer! Turns out, they’ve been planning a new release, but they’re in need of some funds to make it happen.

record store day 2014

Record Store Day is an important holiday around these parts. As my collection grows, I’ve been more willing to participate in the celebration of brick-and-mortar record stores and have traveled for hours to get to a participating store to get exclusive vinyl releases.

Exclaim.ca has posted a list of exclusives for this year’s event, and while the full list should really be marveled, we’ve combed it for stuff we feel like you’ll want to see first, including releases from Between the Buried and Me, Gojira, Mastodon, Opeth, and more. Check out our picks after the jump.

gojira

As if this post really needed any more words. I could just leave that title and picture up there and most of us would still be ridiculously hype. Regardless, thanks to the keen eyed Greg over at Metal Injection, we’ve now learned through a Facebook update that Gojira are apparently hard at work, writing new material for the follow up to 2012’s L’Elephant Sausage.

Mastodon gojira kvelerak tour

With Mastodon, Gojira, and Kvelertak showing up on Columbus, OH’s Rock on the Range Festival lineup for this summer, it was a no brainer that the groups could very likely be hitting the road together on a larger capacity. Finally, the rumors have been confirmed and a handful of tour dates have been announced.

Via Mastodon’s Facebook:

The tour kicks off April 28th in Seattle and criss-crosses the U.S. before culminating in a performance at the Rock On The Range Festival on May 18th. Tickets go on sale this Friday, February 7th.

Mastodon’s upcoming spring U.S. tour dates are as follows:

04/29 Portland, OR Roseland Theater
05/01 Oakland, CA Fox Theater
05/02 Los Angeles, CA Nokia Theater
05/03 Las Vegas, NV House of Blues
05/07 Minneapolis, MN First Avenue
05/08 Chicago, IL The Riviera Theater
05/09 Pittsburgh, PA Stage AE
05/12 Buffalo, NY The Town Ballroom
05/13 Washington, DC 9:30 Club

Though the dates are a bit thin, the tour is definitely stellar. If Rock on the Range weren’t a week before Maryland Deathfest, I’d consider the trip. Unfortunately, I’m gonna have to let this tour pass me by.

In other Mastodon news, the group shared the following update on their album sessions:

Hopefully the album release will coincide with this tour. Could use some of those Mastodon feel-good summer jams. More info on that when we get it.

Septicflesh

In the three years since the release of their previous album The Great Mass, Septicflesh haven’t exactly been inactive. Season of Mist re-released their entire discography it seems, and the band have been keeping up with worldwide touring, with shows on the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise happening now and a Japanese tour coming next month. It still feels like we haven’t seen much of them though, right? Hopefully that changes soon, as the band have just wrapped up the recording of their as of yet untitled new album.

gojira

I’m going to put it straight out there: Gojira‘s The Link Alive is one of the greatest metal DVDs ever. Seeing that as a kid, just after the release of From Mars To Sirius, around the time Rock Sound had their own TV channel(!) just solidified for me exactly how heavy the racket that Gojira makes really is. Watching Mario Duplantier tear through ‘Embrace The World‘ and ‘Clone‘ like it was absolutely nothing to him was just mindblowing.

Thankfully, history is repeating itself again, albeit this time a little differently. The band have announced the release of new art book, entitled Les Enfants Sauvages (unfortunately not a Metal Gear Solid reference),  that comes with a brand new live DVD, taken from a show last year at the Brixton Academy in London last year. If my memory serves me right, that comes from the tour where they were direct support to Ghost and were completely upstaging them every single night, so the quality is naturally going to be pretty high.
