You were told to swallow crawl and hide
Victims of fear and deception
Get ahold of yourself rise above
The better part of you, immortal

May this purple spring flow into your soul
Exhausting all these black holes inside
Wake up to the sound of doom!
Let this chant ring in your bones and lift you up

Get strong

Leave the mud behind and climb up the sky
Wake up to the sound of doom!

It's the most beautiful song they've ever made. I often called a lot of what they do "healing metal" because there are very few songs in existence that do this sort of thing, and most of it is from Gojira.

Argh. À chaque fois qu'un groupe de métal français commence à avoir du succès, il se met à faire de la soupe... (ref. Mass Hysteria, No One is Innocent, etc.)

What. A. Band! Each album just keeps getting surprisingly yet expectedly better...if that makes sense to anyone else... everything from the messages to the music to the tone. The tone you guys! This album sounds amazing on all levels.

So you all want a war with China? That's what it would take...cause I guarantee the Chinese Communist Party does not give a damn about what rich, pampered, western "artists" and their fans think about these matters. This is not "taking a stand" but rather an echo chamber for those who feel guilty about not taking a stand.

Gojira have always had a different effect on me to most metal. There is metal that you want to unleash your aggression to and move and go nuts, but Gojira's music takes that out of me, like the music is not coming in to my ears but emitting from them, releasing what's inside of my head and leaving me with a meditative sense of calm.

Respect to Gojira for amplifying this message. What really saddens me is the fact that especially post 2008 Beijing Olympics, no Tibetans could now escape from Colonial Chinese claws - even if they do - at Nepalese border they are deported back at Chinsese hands to perish because of back door agreement with Nepalese govt. : bitterwinter.org/chinas-secret-agreement-with-nepal/ . Further, while escaping from mountains Tibetans fleeing are shot like target practice object by Chinese rangers which had been captured in footage by western mountaineer: us-first.info/player/video/qMqvZK92iqqMq4U.html. I would like thank once again for the solidarity as it used to be in-thing back in the 90s until it cause went into total oblivion beause of Chinese blood money.

And to think that modern humans did or said nothing to avoid this travesty really speaks volumes about where we stand as a species, this day in age. I would be upset if future generations aren't ashamed of all of us for allowing this and the many more unspeakable acts that have been displayed by humans to humans. I just don't quite understand the level of hate that we are capable of having towards people of our own species. It's not normal. However, I'm not sure any of us would know what is normal behavior any longer.

China also gave money to buy the weapons for Pol Pot to form a military and overthrow General Lon Nol of Cambodia. On April 15,1975 the Khmer Rouge finally led by Pol Pot sieged Phnom Penh. In the following 4 year period approximately 30 percent of the Cambodian population would be murdered.

Sorry but Gojira, this is not progress, this is simply clutching at straws when you run out of ideas and making a lighter amalgamation of everything you've written until now. This is literally what they call 'getting soft'. The songs you wrote out of a much deeper and personal pain years back will do more to help Tibetans or anyone else than this crap.

Thank you so much Gojira, much love from Hong Kong. As a Hongkonger witnessing how our last bits of freedom being taken away every day, thank you for speaking up and standing up for what’s righteous. That’s why we are proud metalheads. Thank you.

It is a natural development of things that the group, who made a career out of preaching, now literally has preaching in their songs... PS: I 'm not saying anything about the political situation depicted in the video, about which I know very little. But making heavy metal about these things has absolute 0 impact, while at the same time it capitalises on cheap emotional reflexes and gives a fake sense of accomplishment of something noble. This is the well-fed, western European man's idea of revolution and political activism...

If your culture is serfdom for majority(for 90% of population) and "peacefull" religion for other 10% - then ... FUCK your culture IMHO. Natsists also had "GOD WITH US" on their buckles.

Seria legal uma versão do clipe para o massacre francês no Marrocos, Mauritânia Caribe e até no Brasil também por meio do treinamento das forças armadas para repreender a própria população....... Mas enfim... Só um brasileiro aqui lembrando que nenhuma nação é santa. Polêmica também a questão dos rogingya que estão sendo massacradas justamente por budistas...
