It’s been five days since Gojira announced the impending release of their greatly-anticipated new album, Fortitude, and released that album’s first single, “Born for One Thing.” And you know what that means… enough time has passed that we can now all needlessly judge the quality of the work! YAY!!!

So we ask you, our beloved MetalSucks readers: how do you feel about the latest offering from one of the most beloved and respected bands in modern metal? Does it live up to your expectations? Is it a staggering disappointment? Somewhere in-between? Cast your vote below!

Fortitude comes out April 30 on Roadrunner. Pre-order it here.

Gojira’s 2020 tour with Deftones and Poppy may or may not actually happen this summer. Current are at the bottom of this post. <!– jQuery(‘body’).append(Array
