GOJIRA - Albums To See Vinyl Re-Issue2013-06-16
By popular demand, Prosthetic Records will soon issue gatefold double-LP editions of the two albums that rocketed the French quartet Gojira from the European underground to international stardom.
“From Mars To Sirius” and “The Way Of All Flesh” will be released on vinyl on August 27th, 2013. Pre-orders are available now at this location.
Originally issued overseas in 2005, “From Mars To Sirius," released by Prosthetic in 2006, and never before available on LP in North America, was the Western Hemisphere’s formal introduction to Gorjia. One of MetalSucks’ Top 10 “best metal albums of the 21st Century so far,” the album was supported by U.S. tours with the likes of Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, Machine Head, Behemoth, and Amon Amarth. The gatefold 2LP set will be available in three 180-gram variants: “Eco-Green” (600 copies), “Mars Red” (200 copies) and “Sea Blue” (200 copies), the latter two of which are mail-order exclusives.
Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Logan Mader (Five Finger Death Punch, DevilDriver, Fear Factory), the follow-up was “The Way Of All Flesh” (2008). The band’s first release to crack the Billboard Top 200, the album — which features a guest appearance by Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe — was supported by tours with In Flames and All That Remains, in addition to a month touring North American arenas with Metallica. The gatefold 2LP set marks the first time in three years that the album will be available on vinyl, and it will be offered in two new variants: 180-gram clear (500 copies), and a mail-order exclusive, standard-weight blue/white split vinyl (500 copies).
