Everyone’s favorite French metal band Gojira is back and they have a new album coming out soon. Magma which is the title of the band’s first album since 2012’s L’Enfant Sauvage is due out in stores on June 17TH. To bide the time until the album’s release, the band has unleashed a music video for all the world to see and we have it for you here. The band released the music video for the track Stranded. The march of the elephants is on as the band’s signature sound is in full effect along with the chugging guitar tone in this very different video. The video is part performance video and part weird video with what looks to be a gypsy or voodoo queen. The band has stated that Magma‘s lyrical content was largely influenced by the death of frontman/guitarist Joe and drummer Mario Duplantier’s mother’s death. Mario states in an interview with Rolling Stone, “When you read Joe’s lyrics, for me, I cry right away. They’re very deep and to the point. No bulls–t. We recycle our sadness and depression in the music.” Joe adds to the convo saying, “Mario was recording drums, and I was playing guitar with him, just trying to help him know where he’s at in the song, and both of us would start crying at the same time.” Check out the video below, be on the lookout for the record on June 17TH, and you can pre-order here. Check out the album artwork below while you are it.

For this week’s music video of the week, I had other plans as to what video I was going to use, but some bad news changed my mind. The people of Paris, France were victims today due to terrorist attacks that occurred at several sites around Paris including a nightclub where there was a concert going on. Le Bataclan is the club that terrorists entered into and open fire during an Eagles Of Death Metal/Deftones show that was happening. So to honor the people of France and the people of Paris, I am dedicating this post to them. One of my favorite metal bands from France is Gojira (it means Godzilla) and I chose a song from the bands fifth studio album L’enfant sauvage (it means Wild Child). I chose the title track as the video for this week’s Music Video Of The Week and it’s a very creative one as well as it’s very artsy. Check it out below and my hearts and prayers go out to the people of Paris and France. Pray For Paris
