Gojira's Mario Duplantier

Gojira’s Mario Duplantier Shares New Drum Solo Track “The City”


Gojira drummer Mario Duplantier is back with another drum solo composition. This time around he took inspiration from the sounds of New York City to create “The City“, offering the following of it:

“It’s a giant monster made of wood and steel,
gold and dirt,
ice and storms,
As fast as light, its movements, animated by an unspeakable and superb energy, create various fascinating sounds.
The monster will destroy you on its path if you are not watchful
You may have to reinforce yourself to survive The City.”
