Gojira, ‘The Way of All Flesh’ (Prosthetic)

While modern heshers await the next album from Mastodon,Flesh serves as brutal palate cleanser. Like the good postmodern thrashers they are, Gojira blend blast beats (“Adoration for None”), sludge stomp (“Yama’s Messengers”), and death-and-doom riff spirals (take your pick) with unexpected quirks, like the solid minute of stick taps that open “The Art of Dying” and the math rock of “Toxic Garbage Island.” But they should’ve breathed fire on whoever thought the industro-flange groove of “A Sight to Behold” was a bright idea.
