Rarely ones to work with the most accelerated of timetables to begin with (especially when touring opportunities kept on beckoning) France's Gojira kept fans waiting all of three years between their breakthrough album, From Mars to Sirius, and its all-important successor, The Way of All Flesh. Luckily, by the time it finally emerged in late 2008, Gojira's fourth full-length successfully met most all of the understandably heightened expectations head on, opening strong with a pair of typically syncopated, groove-driven numbers in "Oroborus" and the harmonics-punctuated "Toxic Garbage Island," then repeatedly upping the compositional ante with a string of imaginative progressive headbangers (e.g., "All the Tears," "Wolf Down the Earth," and album-best "The Art of Dying") that were rife with technical fireworks and songwriting variety. Yes, there were also a few failed experiments and indifferent offerings, including instrumental interlude "The Silver Cord" (which barely even registers amidst the surrounding sonic beatings), and the techno effects, jumpy chords, and whiny clean vocals that make the first half of "A Sight to Behold" sound like a bad imitation of hip-hop rockers Cypress Hill (clean vocals are a limiting factor throughout, actually, also contributing to the dull grind of "Vacuity"). But whereas first-time listeners were likely suffering from some serious metal fatigue by the arrival of the 75-minute album's 17-minute title song (give or take a few interruptions and tacked-on "hidden tracks"), devoted Gojira fans were surely grateful to have this much music to digest while beginning the likely long wait for the band's next offering. Until that day comes, The Way of All Flesh provides another fascinating chapter in Gojira's ever more impressive catalog.

Alice Cooper Doesn’t Run from Danger

The Alice Cooper story is, first and foremost, an extraordinary tale of “split personality”. Like something straight out of “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”, singer Vincent Furnier surrendered to the domination of showman Alice Cooper. But by his own admission, the man who always speaks of “Alice” in the third person in interviews remains a simple, completely normal guy in private, far from the stage where he enacts his excesses and provocations. Throughout a career stretching over 50 years, there is an evident streak of schizophrenia in his many stylistic changes. While we credit him with the invention of shock rock, he has ventured into almost every genre with varying degrees of success, from pop to nascent hard rock, with forays into heavy metal, new wave and industrial…

Back in Black: AC/DC in all Their Glory

With 50 million copies sold, Back in Black is the second best-selling album of all time just behind Michael Jackson’s thriller. Who could have imagined that AC/DC’s seventh studio album would pick up so many awards considering their charismatic lead-singer Bon Scott’s premature death after the release of Highway to Hell. The album marked the end of their first chapter but the beginning of their second which fans of the Australian band today continue to relish…

Metallica, the Path to Glory

Having sold 125 million albums across the globe, including some 30 million copies of their “Black Album”, Metallica is among the unlikeliest of pop sensations to come out of the last half-century. So how did a heavy metal band with such a convoluted song structure end up on par with music from the likes of Madonna and Michael Jackson? By following their instincts and sheer determination. Let’s return to the roots of the most famous heavy metal band in history.
