Best Gojira Songs

Gojira is an french metal band, best described as progressive death metal. They have released four albums through 2001-2008.

The Top Ten

1 Flying Whales

I can't think of a song with so many different sections wow. And the riffs, every time I hear this song I end up with a stiff neck. Too good.

Much better than Oroborus. Gojira is amazing

This song just is the definition of a pure masterpiece. The riffs just hit you like bricks, the intro just sets the right vibe. My first time listening to it I didn't expect it to be good, but was I wrong. Especially that breakdown, it makes me want to just mosh like a crazy man. This song is just gold in my opinion.

Total masterpiece. The starting riff hits you like a truck. The lyrics are very relevant to our time as well.

2 The Art of Dying

This song not only immensely displays their talents as musician (especially Mario), but also adds their incredible lyrical talents. One of my favorite songs of all time.

Just SICK. Mood set by the metronome in the beginning. Listen loud to hear the layered sounds and screams. Then it hits HARD. Climax in the center with a really thick chorus. The part 2, or outro, allows you come down after the beating you just took. Could easily be in top 3 Gojira songs ever.

I've never heard a song fade out so well in my life

Interesting start, amazing song.

3 The Gift of Guilt

Best song from the L'enfant Savage but a long mile. I have no idea how would anyone choose some of the other songs over this one. It's ridiculous man. The riffs and the drums are so well balanced it's beautiful

A sensational masterpiece from the melodic build up right to the death metal climax. It should be at least in the top 5 or even 3 but for me, it's their best song so far

The first time I heard this song I was thinking this is amazing, that guitar lick/fill in the verse just overpowers everything!

Phenomenal!..some of my favorite drums ever..The guitar parts, the transitions, time signature changes..just downright filthy!

4 Backbone

Headbang and moshing till death! This song made me listen to more gojira songs!

if you don't headbang while listening then you're not metal at all, heaviest song ever... well maybe not ever but it's definitely really heavy haha

You sit there in disbelief about what you just heard. That last riff starting at 3:25 mark, that riff could go on forever, it's like I just shot ten litres of adrenaline into my skull.

This song hits you like a truck.

5 The Heaviest Matter of the Universe

There are few riffs that compare. This song is crushingly heavy. The scientists that argue black holes are the heaviest "matter" in the universe haven't heard this song.

You can't beat the guitar riffs in the song. Took some real talent to make a song this great. Phenomenal!

Very heavy song. Very technical, and brutal. This song will for sure keep you headbanging along the whole time. This song is in my top 5 Gojira songs, along with Toxic Garbage Island, Embrace the World, Remembrance, the Way of All Flesh, and In the Wilderness.

Dem guitar riffs. Dem drum. Dem vocals. Dem bass. Dem legends.

6 Vacuity

Slow and heavy - real metal monster, very brutal monster.

This Song made me realise why I love Gojira so much. It's a song I could listen to all day, every day.

Great Progressive music I ever heard..!

My mind right now.

The main-riff hits you like a truck

I thought this could be their best song, but damn, it not even top 10. More songs to listen to for me!

Gets me so pumped

Sick riffs.

8 L'enfant Sauvage

You just need to listen it once or maybe even half of it, to vote it as the best of Gojira and one of the best extreme metal song..!

It's the best song by gojira... Should be on number 1... M/

Its not only one of the best song by gojira, its one of the best metal song ever created

If Killswitch Engage's "The End of Heartache" had a more progressive beat, was a little more over the top in guitars and vocals, and focused a little more on the horror of Resident Evil, it'd have to be this song. - OnyxDash

9 Oroborus

The intro is beast! Great guitar and vocals, the best off The Way Of All Flesh in my opinion

This is Gojira's masterpiece. This is what they really are, and can play. This song is the very reason I started to listen to Gojira. Truly awesome song.

The tapping in the intro is amazing, as well as the tremolo and slides.

I almost like this more than The Art of Dying...almost. - cjWriter1997

10 Born In Winter

Maybe my favorite Gojira Song. Definitely my favorite from the new album. The guitar work is just SO amazing, and when the song builds up. Brilliant stuff

Love this song! It's my 2nd favorite Gojira song so I'm voting for it, since it's at 12 and my favorite Gojira song is at number 2, so I decided I'd vote for this song.

Fantastic progression of sound; gets you pumped up and does not disappoint when the power pushes through to the front of the mix.

This song deserve to be in top ten

The Contenders

11 Silvera

My personal favourite off of their new album, so far that is. Gojira really gave it all they had with this track. Bone crushing double guitar riffs, a melodic little solo and atmospheric guitar tapping because why not?

I mean it's probably the best song of Magma, really great song.

It's a new song that deserve to climb up to the top 10 at least.

This song deserves to be at the top 5 at least but since it's relativese new it hasn't garnered enough votes yet. The riff though!

12 From the Sky

First song of theirs I heard, brutal and catchy song with heaviest outro you'll ever hear.

My personal favorite. While not as epic as Flying Whales or The Art of Dying, this song is a metal masterpiece. every time I hear the second guitar play that minor harmony over the opening riff, I get chills down my arms and legs.

An epic song with heavy riff. m/

13 Global Warming

This song is absolutely amazing. How Backbone is rated higher is absolutely beyond me. Fantastic guitar lines, incredible percussion... gotta love the Duplantiers and company.

Every now and then I think Vacuity or L'enfant Sauvage is the best Gojira song... Then I hear Global Warming again and it just hits me with this realisation of how the world is, and I have the same feeling every time I listen to it, even from the first time I did. Best Gojira song, and there should be no questioning.

The last minutes are incredible it makes me even cry. It's a very deep and a touching song for me.

Come on gals and guys, you all know it's the one

14 Where Dragons Dwell

The most epic song from From Mars to Sirius. Love those drums. Easily the best song from the album.

Amazing song, best on From Mars To Sirius...


This songs it's so good!

15 Explosia

Such an insanely badass song. Not to mention the outro riff / breakdown is one of the heaviest things I've ever heard

That western feeling in the end!

Heavy Heavier Heaviest

The first song I listened to and it left me with a great first impression.

As an album opener this is amazing! The end of this song gives me chills every time... So passionate and so epic!

Wow, I sort of expected this song to be in the top 10 as its melodic and catchy. Weird...

This song... While simple... Is effing powerful. Often overlooked. Emotions are vivid among the vocals and instruments alike
