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.

After listening to hundreds and hundreds of metal tracks, I can safely say that this song has THE greatest guitar riff of all time. When it really kicks in at 2:45, you feel such an intense euphoric wave.

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

This song is so intense

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!

A little overrated in my opinion - AdamDestructorJr.

4 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!

If I went to a Gojira concert and they didn't play this one I'd feel like I missed out. Where have these guys been all by life! I catch myself thinking about this tune all the time and I'm still only know half the lyrics!

Not only my favorite gojira song but one of my favorite songs in general. This should be higher and heavy as hell.

5 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.

The Heavier Matter of the Universe

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.

7 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

8 Toxic Garbage Island

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

Man some of the riffs on this track are absolutely disgusting. Filthly fantastic work by these modern metal heroes.

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 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?

Great riffs and solos, they deserve the grammy for that track

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

Perfect melody

The Contenders

11 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

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.

I can never get over how good that intro riff is, and the outro is to die for.

Brutally heavy

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 Deliverance

This song is just straight great technical death I don't know why this one isn't higher up, great stuff from these guys.

Best gojira song ever.

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

16 Ocean Planet

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

17 Where Dragons Dwell

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

This should be on top. The riffs from the very beginning and the breakdowns until the end are so damn heavy that your neck would rip apart

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

This song needs to be much higher on this list. blasphemy that it’s this low. Easily one of the top 5 best Gojira songs.

18 Stranded

Not their best, but I think within the top 5. Not many bands can keep releasing music with such intensity for 15 years, and this song proves that they can, even if they may be focusing on more melodic vocals with L'Enfant Sauvage and this song. I'm highly anticipating Magma's release and a big part of that reason is this song.

Not as much of a journey as their other songs but a killer banger nevertheless, one of the best songs I've heard in a while

My favorite Gojira song alongside From Mars/To Sirius (I see them as one)

Dude! I don't know about others but I am blown away with this song! That riff and his vocals with that main part! I am carying dude literally I am crying...yesterday I discovered gojira and today I love them like anything.

One of my favorite riffs of all time! This song encapsulates the essence of what is a beautiful ferocity of sound. My #1 Gojira track.

This was the song that turned me on to gojira, its fantastic

Best song on L'Enfant Suavage. I can't believe it is not in the top ten. The riffs from the bridge till the outro are out-of-this-world

Second Half of song is awesome! Swimming through depression then pain throws punch in your face. The end doesn't come easily.

Extremely underrated

31 Adoration for None

This song is just great why its 30th is way beyond me.

32 Only Pain

One of the most angry songs I've ever listened to! - InsanityJoe

33 The Way of All Flesh

This must be in top ten songs. The drums are just marvelous.

This song is just what represents the band entirely.. There are so many different sections in this song.. The right on heaviness and the atmospheric progressive melodi in the end.. Simply just beautiful!

Such a underrated masterpiece, wich deserves way more credit,

34 Pray

If you have seen them play this song live, then you understand. It was seriously almost 15 minutes long. They know exactly what to do with their songs for live performances.

This song is really really good with meaningful lyrics and some heavy vocals I think its top 10 easy

By far their best song yet. Should be number 1.

There is just something about this song that gives me the chills every time I hear it, especially for the intro. Might not be their most technical song, but damn is it groovy..!

This song is just amazing. Something mind blowing. Insane

I love the intro

48 The Link

Amazing song with really heavy, progressive riffs, great vocal and pumping double bass and expert drum lines throughout make this the best song off The Link and one of the best Gojira songs ever.

I voted for Ocean Planet as that is my personal favorite, but this song needs to be higher up on the list. Top 20 at least.
