Gojira Week: Day 2

(antiMusic) France isn't exactly the country you think of when you think of heavy metal but heavy rockers Gojira are out to change that perception. The band hit 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:

"Toxic Garbage Island": There is a location in the central North Pacific Ocean described by scientists as "The Great Pacific Garbage Patch" or "The Eastern Garbage Patch". It's an area characterized by high concentrations of suspended plastic debris.

Last year I was walking by the sea near my home town in France and I saw a plastic bag floating under the surface of water between the waves. I first thought it was some kind of medusa struggling, but then, I understood what it was. It made me sick to think that the world's oceans are full of plastic and fuel. I'm a big supporter of Greenpeace because they do their best to fight all types of pollution. The vision of this plastic bag in the sea was stuck in my mind and a few days later I started to write the lyrics. The working title for this song was "A Plastic Bag In The Sea".
