Gojira are back with an amazing album. „L’Efant Sauvage“ is definitely the best record since the band started in the 1996 with the name Gozilla. They changed not only their name and with the previous record “The Way Of All Flesh” they showed in an impressive manner their technical skills and their ability to write deepest Death metal without losing melodies. With „L’Efant Sauvage“ they improve these initial steps and start again a musical roller coaster from the first to the last songs. Already the first song “Explode” show that this French guys blend again different styles which makes a classification of the sound impossible. Incredible fast drum parts meet melodic and more instrumental supported elements. Complex but still sophisticated arrangements and breathtakingly hook lines go through all 11 songs without any compromise. Straight to the point and still with enough opportunity to discover new facings with each play, L’Efant Sauvage” step up a gear compared to the predecessor. This is how Death Metal should sound in the year 2012. Outstanding!
