Gojira’s single ‘The Axe’ has now been inducted into the Death Match Hall of Fame

Mozart has the classic purity of light and the blue ocean; Gojira the fire of passion which belongs to the storms of air and sea, and while the soul of Mozart seems to dwell on the ethereal peaks of Olympus, that of Gojira inhabits the sauvage beauty of nature, riding fearless the storm-beaten sides of the tallest waves. Each represents a moment of life, each does us good. ~ AA

Metal masters Gojira (based in the Basque city of Baiona/Bayonne in France) have clobbered their way to Death Match immortality as the band’s single ‘The Axe’ has now been inducted into the Death Match Hall of Fame with four straight victories.

Gojira began their victorious trek by defeating the world’s most successful cartoon metal band, Dethklok, launching the stamina Gojira needed to ignite a path of utter destruction. Gojira then went on to face metalcore leaders As I Lay Dying, pulling off an incredible win against the new school giants.

The savage metal act went on to destroy legendary black metallers Enslaved, before facing yet another massive challenge against Cradle of Filth, which gave Gojira their fourth and final win.

“Praise be to Gojira and ‘The Axe,’ as we declare the band’s track as immortal in the Loudwire Death Match Hall of Fame.”
