* MemeticMutation: ''L'Enfant Sauvage'' is often jokingly referred to in the death metal fandom as "elephant sausage". This is due to a number of people misreading the album title upon its release.

Gojira plays a technical and rhythmic style of heavy metal with precision drumming, unusual rhythm patterns, and start-and-stop riffs. Gojira has also been known to incorporate textured atmospheric elements and instrumental songs into their music, whilst employing progressive and uncommon song structures rather than standard verse, chorus, verse songwriting. The vocal style is varied, ranging from the screamed style often employed in extreme metal, with the death growl style predominantly used in death metal, in addition to clean vocals and higher screams. At times, death metal growls and clean vocals are mixed to create an aggressive but melodic effect. Lyrically, they have a strong environmental theme, centred on man's reckless disregard for nature and its potentially apocalyptic consequences.

Their style has gradually evolved to a somewhat more melodic and accessible approach over the years, to the point their latest album Magma (2016), while still quite heavy, veers aways from Death Metal almost entirely and is half-sung, half-screamed.

* GenreBusting: While leaning towards tech death, they have been associated with thrash metal, progressive metal and groove metal. The progressive elements have generally increased on each album they have released, to the point where ''L'Enfant Sauvage'' is probably more prog than tech.

''Magma'' throws in some ambient elements too.



* NewSoundAlbum: ''Magma'', while keeping death metal elements, is generally less agressive and more accessible, has less screaming, and even has an ''acoustic'' instrumental as the final track. Both Mario and Joe have clearly said in interviews that they were no longer a death metal band.
