âGojira’s ‘From Mars to Sirius’ + ‘The Way of All Flesh’ to See Vinyl Release
Here’s a little refresher course on these albums, which captured Roadrunner Records’ attention and helped get the band signed there. ‘From Mars to Sirius’ originally dropped overseas in 2005. Prosthetic then released the album in North America a year later. The two-LP set will will be available in three 180-gram variants and in limited quantities: “Eco-Green” (600 copies); “Mars Red” (200 copies); and “Sea Blue” (200 copies), the latter of which is a mail-order exclusive.
‘The Way of All Flesh’ further cemented Gojira’s reputation for being progressive without being too proggy or esoteric, and for being technical and surgically precise without being inaccessible or unlistenable. This release marks the first time in three years that the album will be available on vinyl. Two variants are being offered: a 180-gram clear version, limited to 500 copies, as well as the mail-order exclusive, which will be a standard-weight blue/white split vinyl. Only 500 copies will be pressed.
Even if you’re not a collector, Gojira’s music begs to be listened to in vinyl form. You can pre-order the records here. Gojira’s latest album and Roadrunner debut, ‘L’Enfant Sauvage,’ is out now.
