The official lyric video for “Liquid Fire”, a song from French progressive metallers GOJIRA, can be seen below. The track comes off the band’s fifth album, “L’Enfant Sauvage”, which sold almost 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 34 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous CD, “The Way Of All Flesh”, opened with 4,200 units back in 2008 to land at No. 138.
“L’Enfant Sauvage” entered the official chart in France at position No. 7 (No. 17 on the digital chart).
“L’Enfant Sauvage” (which translates to “The Wild Child”) features 11 tracks of mind-bending, thunderous metal. The CD was recorded at Spin Recording Studios in Long Island City, New York with co-producer Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD).
In an interview with Metalshrine, GOJIRA guitarist/vocalist Joseph Duplantier stated about the new album title, “We couldn’t call it ‘The Wild Child’, because it’s hard to translate ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’. It’s not really the wild child as understood in English, because a wild child for me, has an aspect like someone out of control somehow. ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ in French… ‘Sauvage’ is something that is not educated or something that is like free and completely free in nature. A wild flower that goes wherever she wants and becomes something beautiful. The idea with ‘L’Enfant Sauvage’ is like with a human that would grow up in nature, raised by wolves, for example, without the influence from others and the influence from institutions or society in general. Without a social security number. [laughs] Not even a name. This is what you are and I am on the inside, right? How much the education and the culture, emotions and the guilt are interacting with us and it changes us and how far are we from this pure child inside? That’s the question we had on this album.”
A special collector’s package of “L’Enfant Sauvage” features two bonus tracks and a double-colored vinyl version of the record, along with an exclusive t-shirt.
