But two minutes into the opening track, ‘Beckoning Oblivion,’ all such assumptions were shattered away.
Gojira are all set to headline the Indian Metal Fest this December 15th. I had never listened to any of their work before. So I decided to give their latest offering a spin before the concert. And dare I say, Gojira might have found themselves a new fan in me.
