Gojira – “The Shooting Star”

53641-magma

We’re now only a few days away from the release of Magma, and as always, I’m just a few days late posting the new song. Earlier this week, Gojira officially leaked the album’s opening track “The Shooting Star,” and as far as current songs go, this is easily my favorite. I’ve always loved when the band entered this slow, dream-like territory, and they execute the sound flawlessly on here. It’s heavy in a way that is much different from the word’s traditional meaning, and it allows for some great moments of emotion from the song’s instrumentation.

You can listen to “The Shooting Star” below, and if you haven’t done so yet, there’s still time to grab a pre-order from their online store.
