Gojira announce new LP ‘Magma,’ share “Stranded” (listen)

Gojira - Magma

French death metal outfit Gojira have been teasing their new album for a while now, and today they finally released a new song as well as details on the LP. It’s called Magma, and it hits on June 17 via Roadrunner. The lead single is called “Stranded,” and you can stream that below.

“Stranded” effectively follows the Gojira formula. They take simple, slow-paced churning death metal and inject it with a tinge of psychedelia and a unique skill for melody that doesn’t take the typical melodeath approach. Built around a simple chugging guitar figure with a weird, pitch-shifted payoff, the track builds to a huge chorus where the crush of the guitars is equaled in power by the stirring vocal hook.

Watch that video below. Gojira currently have European dates planned, and they’ve promised a North American run to be announced next week. All dates listed, along with the video for “Stranded” and the tracklist for Magma, below.
