Andrew Haug of Australia’s Soundwave Pirate Radio show recently conducted an interview with drummer Mario Duplantier of French progressive metallers GOJIRA. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
GOJIRA‘s new album will be released later in the year via the band’s new record label, Roadrunner Records. The CD was recorded at Spin Recording Studios in Long Island City, New York with co-producer Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD).
GOJIRA is comprised of Joe Duplantier, who has a previous relationship with Roadrunner, having played bass on CAVALERA CONSPIRACY‘s debut “Inflikted”, along with guitarist Christian Andreu, bassist Jean-Michel Labadie and drummer Mario Duplantier, who is also Joe‘s brother.
The band’s Roadrunner debut will be its fifth album overall. It was 2005’s “From Mars to Sirius” and 2008’s “The Way of All Flesh” which established GOJIRA as a metal force of nature and a key player in the scene.
