So what about the song writing? Having been immortalised within this album, Magma feels more like a celebration rather than a mournful eulogy of Patricia Rosa Duplantier. Many of the songs feel a bit directionless because of weak, unnecessarily repetitive endings and their overall length. While it can drag in places, I have little doubt in my mind that this is an absolutely great album. Gojira have existed for quite a while now.

From Mars To Sirius expands on the previous 2 albums by the band, toning down the extremely raw sound the debut brought forth, and the more atmospheric stuff found on The Link, making a more progressive, complex album that still maintains a lot of the previous qualities.

A top three track for sure. Gojira have also been known to incorporate textured atmospheric elements and instrumental songs into their music. The song is composed of many different riffs, each with interesting fills and transitions. So where does From Mars to Sirius fit in?

Each song is packed with memorable riffs and a perfect blend of solid groove perfect for headbanging and furious transitions and climaxes, further improved by the production making everything sound even bigger and more spacious, providing a unique quality to them that I feel can't be replicated by many bands. Backbone is more of a s. I find the vocals to be really great in general, having the rough qualities of screaming while still being properly sung to allow some melody.
