Gojira - The Link LP (black)
"The Link" certainly stands out in Gojira's praiseworthy discography, for having such an odd production quality. The following albums employ a very modern-sounding, yet edgy production which emphasizes the guitar-tone to beyond brutal. But "The Link" almost sounds as if all 11 tracks were recorded in the middle of the Amazon rainforest. The guitars and bass are crisp with plenty of weight behind them, whilst the drums pierce through with an almost metallic quality. Swirling airily around this musical maelstrom, is Joe Duplantiers semi-growled, slightly distant vocals - emanating an aura of eerie mysticism.
