For those who feel that the French are little more than cheese-eating surrender monkeys, we give you Gojira. This metal band from Bayonne does dark the way only Frenchmen can. With rapid fire guitar chuggery, raspy growling vocals and dual bass drums, Gojira are simultaneously heavy and haunting. With five studio albums to their credit, the band is known for championing the cause of the environment through their lyrics.
