This week’s been a tasty week for new releases (sorry about the This Week In Heavy hiatus!), and this has definitely been the case for death metal in particular. Both Gojira and Dying Fetus have albums coming out this week, and you can stream them both online before you decide on dropping the cash.
First up, Gojira’s latest record L’enfant Sauvage is streaming over at this Australian website called The Music. Some rumblings around the internet have been calling this some of Gojira’s best work to date. I’m still trying to get into this record, so the jury’s out as far as I’m concerned on that front, but it is undoubtedly the Gojira we all know and love! Consistent, yet a step forward for the band. That’s out now on Roadrunner Records.
When you’re done with Gojira, Metalsucks has the stream for Dying Fetus’ new record Reign Supreme. I’ve had the record for a while now, and I still can’t make heads or tails of it for a review, and I mean that in the best way possible. It’s great death metal with a multifaceted approach pulling from all over the genre’s spectrum — grind, brutal, tech, groove — it has it all! Go check it out, available now via Relapse Records.
