On its fifth album and first for Roadrunner Records, 2012's , French heavy metal goliaths Gojira certainly ask their fair share of questions. The title, which literally means "The wild child," connotes a big question for singer, songwriter, and guitarist Joe Duplantier. "When you become a musician, you don't have a boss telling you what to do so you have to be very responsible," he affirms. "With freedom comes responsibility so I'm asking myself, 'What is freedom? What does it mean to me?' L'Enfant Sauvage reflects on that. There's no answer though. There's just life and questions."
L'Enfant Sauvage was recorded at Spin Recording Studios in Long Island City, New York with Josh Silver (Lamb Of God) and comprises 11-tracks of mind-bending metal.
