I saw a video about this on Blabbermouth. The sea shepherd is a group that tries to stop the killing of whales. So Gojira is writing an album for the creatures of the sea. Dethklok already did this with the Dethwater album, lol. For real though this is awesome! Gojira=Totallys Brutal

Post 2: Gojira's lyrics and music have all been about saving the Earth. Dethklok is another fad.

Digital albums? When will this fad end? I've got dial-up, and sometimes digital-only albums don't fully download to my computer when I pay for them, and I end up getting ripped off. I wish they'd release it in physical form as well, or I probably won't get it...

Yeah but I don't see Gojira saving the Earth anytime soon. Not least because they're French.

DC,OZ,ES, LOL.....
Saving marine wildlife.....ya thats metal....
While its a good cause i guess, ive never been a fan of people annoucing to the world or to their friends that theyre giving to a charity or cause.....cut a check, tell the organization to keep it anonymous, feel good about it, walk away....the only people you need to tell is the IRS to get a tax break...none the less props to the band for giving....

PRTB: while i would agree w/ u completely on the modesty factor, but the fact of the matter is, they wouldn't make much more money if it wasn't for them announcing that it's for charity. stupid, but true. nonetheless, i'm buying this sh** and i'll probably give a little extra if it's awesome, which i'm pretty sure, it will be.

#9, Politics? You go ahead and show me those lyrics. Gojira's lyrics involve the likes of: caring for the Earth and her inhabitants, spiritual journeys and enlightenment, and a few tracks about passing from the living to the dead and how it's all interconnected.

all those fruitcakes and their love the earth politics are f***ing nuts with warped f***ing perspectives, and just because their lyrics is all YOU know about them doesn't mean that's all there is to them. They're the metal equivalent of The Indigo Girls.

SUSTAINABLE resources and harvest, yes....this fvcking subject is too broad to broach here, but....utilize QUALITY science, as exemplified by our very sound north american consevation model (by FAR the most continuously successful collectivity of wildlife programs on the planet); create a structure for intn'l ACTIVE enforcement of strict marine harvest quotas;
nail both poachers and pirates such as the sea sheepturds (who infringe and harass upon LEGAL activity) with the fvcking absolute in judicial and civil assessments and penalties; and finally, keep these goddamned bambi minded kooks with NO FVCKING INKLING of real world experience in the ways of the wild out of the fvcking picture

simple enough....but people are generally both stupid AND greedy....makes for ill and corrupt diplomacy

all right sorry, that's it....50, fvckin great metal name, i greatly admire the powers of the big browning, hell yeah

RT....have you ever eaten whale? i will tell you it is fvckin nasty, shark ain't much better....now STEAKS!

you boys ever wanna come on down and eat us up some flash grilled filet of elk medallions and sip some xtra cold crispers...you just let me know....

fvckin duplantier had to gape out....and godzilla is GOOD tunes

what the fvck??? i may just go ahead and eject sirius and flesh to the rejection gutter....or turn em into skeet.... ;)

Yer posts crack me up HR \m/! I will never give up my Sirius or Flesh cds. Two of 5 CD's I've actually purchased since my What.CD account got shut down a year and a half ago. Obzen, Lazarus Bird, and Maylene and The Sons latest (the name escapes me) being the other 3! However my priorities, should I ever find myself in a band that can raise awareness and promote a cause, would be rooted more in the promotion of humankind and it's hurdles. Cancer, AIDS, ALS, MS, the list goes on.

Don't tease me RTB I have been known to travel great distances for some dead animal flesh! Elk is by far the tastiest to be found! Hopefully the Sea Sheppard never finds the Nebraska Wild Turkey or Whitetail Deer a worthy species to crash into the side of my Durango to preserve :D

nah RT, come on now----you know i have ONLY absolute and profound love for this wonderful planet...my hatred is for a rather large cross section of the population of her sapien inhabitants.....but i'm really trying to practice more patience with such bumbling and haphazardly destructive specimens....most of them don't even know better.

Now the fvcking Sheepturd of the frothy seas SHOULD and does know better, but are so invested in their zealot pride that they operate from THAT standpoint exclusively....it is a overblown emotional glory chasing drama...with NO roots in proper science; a fvcking yippy charade

BALANCE----makes the world go round

OK no more ranting and raving from me....RT and 50, we're gonna have us that barbie some day, damnit!! i usually have elk and mule deer on hand, and some years also pronghorn or bighorn sheep (now those two are the primest of the prime!)....RT you can bring yer smelly slab of whale if ya want ;)

you guys keep on truckin! happy Wobbly Wednesday to ya RT brother

cheers

well i will just say im f***in stoked for new Gojira! I like their sound more than lyrical content im not a lyrics guy i think most the time its just some dumbass egomaniac pissing in the wind saying hes the band. Gojira is not the case with that. They are similar in mastodon where ya know what ur gettin a quality cd with good instruments. they are all about sound and qualit so i say f***ing awesome! As for saving the whales thats a good cause they ae vital to our ecosystem and with no ecosystem there is no metal but im pretty sure gojira is makin a hefty little cut somewhere for this album and they might give 1 to 2 bucks per cd to charity i dont think its all bent out of shape like everyones making it. They are not f***in U2! thats and idea Whale-Aid to save the whales lol. Oh and i dont know where the dude that made the comment about shark is from but its pretty b****in when u make it right it has a natural spice to it like no other and is quite badass in stew or chowder!
