Gojira - 'Mouth Of Kala' from L'Enfant Sauvage (2012)
'Mouth Of Kala' is my favorite song off of L'Enfant Sauvage. That stutter-overlap riff section is ridiculously awesome, as is the undulating wave-function. Also, it is about Time as a devouring deity and the impermanence of all things, which is a typically Gojira conceit, they being one of my favorite kinda aggro New Age Metal bands. All of their songs are about kundalini energy and flying whales and karmatic blockage and stuff like that. They have a new album out in 2016 and I am way happy about this. I am that dude who turns up the Gojira in the station wagon and blisses out on the way to the Vitamin Shoppe. Here is 'Liquid Fire' which is a super-inspiring song about shakti/prana, which comprises and flows through all being. Also it has a near-disco throb, which is only underscored by the rad vocoder passages. Lastly but maybe the best of all, here is the incredible video for 'Born In Winter', which is the most fully New Age song on an album full of them. So beautiful. So hypnotic and inwardly transporting.
