Durf and Mick of Brutalitopia conducted an interview with drummer Mario Duplantier of French progressive metallers GOJIRA before the band's November 15 concert at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, Illinois. You can now watch the chat below.
GOJIRA is currently on the road in North America as the support act for SLAYER. Also appearing on the bill is 4ARM.
GOJIRA has begun compsosing material for its next album, which Mario says the band definitely wants to release sometime in 2014.
GOJIRA's fifth album, "L'Enfant Sauvage", sold almost 11,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 34 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous CD, "The Way Of All Flesh", opened with 4,200 units back in 2008 to land at No. 138.
"L'Enfant Sauvage" entered the official chart in France at position No. 7 (No. 17 on the digital chart).
"L'Enfant Sauvage" (which translates to "The Wild Child") features 11 tracks of mind-bending, thunderous metal. The CD was recorded at Spin Recording Studios in Long Island City, New York with co-producer Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD).
