Gojira's Joe Duplantier On Challenges On Making Album


(TeamRock Radio) Gojira mainman Joe Duplantier says there's no such thing as a perfect album. The band recently released their sixth studio record Magma which was recorded in Duplantier's New York studio - and he reports that knowing when to wrap up album sessions is difficult as there's always things he'd like to tweak.

Duplantier tells Rocksverige: "At some point when you're working on a record - and I'm sure it's even the same process for a movie - at some point you have to let it go. 'Take your hands off this thing now! Button off!' There is always something.

"It's a nightmare. Mixing is really nerve-racking too, because each time you touch one thing, everything else is kinda moving in the mix. It's this weird, breathing, moving, sweating thing.

"You touch it and it moves. But it's also very exciting and very rewarding when you take on a project like that and you bring it all the way. It's crazy to think that we started all this by building the studio. It was pretty epic."

Gojira are currently on tour in support of Magma and will also head out on the road with Alter Bridge this winter. See the tour dates here.
