Gojira is a French heavy metal band from Bayonne. Originally formed as Godzilla in 1996, they changed their name to Gojira in 2001 prior to releasing any studio albums. The band's lineup, consisting of brothers Joe Duplantier (vocals, guitars) and Mario Duplantier (drums) as well as lead guitarist Christian Andreu and bassist Jean-Michel Labadie, has been the same since then. They have released six studio albums and three live DVDs. They are known for their environmentally-themed lyrics and have gone from "utmost obscurity" to being placed "amongst the genre's leading new millennium upstarts". Gojira have received Grammy nominations for Best Rock Album for their latest album Magma, and Best Metal Performance for their single "Silvera". Source: Wikipedia.
