Gojira Week: Day 1

(antiMusic) France isn't exactly the country you think of when you think of heavy metal but heavy rockers are out to change that perception. The band return to record stores this week with their new album ''The Way of All Flesh," and to celebrate the release we asked frontman Joe Duplantier to pick his favorite tracks from the disc and tell us a little about each one. Here is Joe with today's song:

"Oroborus": This song is about the immortality of the soul. I thought it was interesting to start an album about death with a song about eternal life. The "Oroborus" or "Oroboros" is also called "The Tail Devourer," a serpent or dragon devouring his own tail, a mystical animal from ancient mythology.

The first riff is a weird thing, asymmetric and dissonant, there's an impression of cycle motion that fits with the idea of circle of lives. It's the first song we composed and it's the opening song for the album.
