didn't feel like bumping either Nate's or lurch's thread and making the other dude left out. anyhow, just a few days ago i was listening to Edge of Sanity - Crimson and thinking "god fucking dammit, why can't death metal bands make some epic shit like this that covers all kinds of musical bases while still retaining the whole Death Fucking Metal bit?" lo and behold, that new Gojira album shows up in the mail last night, and covers my request pretty well! that bassist is a monster! i wish more metal bassists would realize it ISN'T HARD to make an interesting bassline while still retaining the job of holding down the low end. oh, and bonus points for using the same amps that i do, SWR.
