Gojira is a Technical Death Metal band from France. Gojira plays a technical and rhythmic style of heavy metal with precision drumming, unusual rhythm patterns, and start-and-stop riffs. Gojira has also been known to incorporate textured atmospheric elements and instrumental songs into their music, whilst employing progressive and uncommon song structures rather than standard verse, chorus, verse songwriting. The vocal style is varied, ranging from the screamed style often employed in extreme metal, with the death growl style predominantly used in death metal, in addition to clean vocals and higher screams. At times, death metal growls and clean vocals are mixed to create an aggressive but melodic effect. Lyrically, they have a strong environmental theme, centred on man's reckless disregard for nature and its potentially apocalyptic consequences.
