Posted on June 28th, 2016 by Morgan Brunner

Joe Duplantier and his band Gojira recently teamed up with Arte.TV for an epic 70-minute video of their private concert held at Studio 500.

The artfully crafted video captures the band and their fans in a movie-quality production full of clever angles that puts the viewer on stage with the band and in the moshing crowd. The fast-paced clips intensify the emotion and with so many up-close shots, it manages to make you feel like you are truly experiencing the performance in person.

During the set, Gojira played three new songs off brand new album Magma, including “Stranded,” “Silvera” and “Only Pain.”

Gojira Drops Stunning Video for ‘Silvera’

Posted on May 20th, 2016 by Chrissy Mauck

 

French progressive metal act Gojira have returned to the metal scene with a vengeance, delivering a stunning new video for second single “Silvera” off upcoming June 17 album Magma.

Directed by Drew Cox, live footage of the band feverishly performing on a rooftop is mixed with surreal and odd scenes including a woman dancing—first while sheathed in a stretchy white fabric and later in a cloud of white powder, another woman shedding black tar tears, a boy with a crown of thorns and a sky filled with bodies streaking upwards.

It’s a clip that, similar to the video for “Stranded,” leaves viewers searching for its hidden meaning.
