Terra Incognita is the debut album released by French death metal band Gojira. It was recorded and mixed by Laurentx Etxemendi. According to a text on the album inlay, the title (Latin for "unknown land") refers to the area inside of each man, where, according to Hindu legend, Brahma hid the divinity that he had taken from humanity for the punishment of its abuse.
This album's title isn't entirely accurate, as Gojira aren't exploring totally unknown territory. If you like Tool and/or Meshuggah, these Frenchmen are gonna make you very happy. They also owe something to death metal and the "groove metal" sound of acts like Pantera and Lamb of God, but they've got a crispness and an impressive clarity to their crunching riffs that's all their own.
