The Way of All Flesh is the fourth studio album by French progressive death metal band Gojira. The album was released on October 13, 2008 in Europe via Listenable Records and on October 14 in the US through Prosthetic Records. It sold around 4,200 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at number 138 on the Billboard 200 chart. It also reached no. 1 on the Top Heatseekers chart and no. 21 on the Top Independent Albums chart.
The flesh in the album title is basically representing all living things, and their way is life followed inevitably by death. The album therefore discusses the importance of our short passage on planet Earth and the responsibilities that goes with that passage. That is, to be aware of and to live respectfully towards our environment. Gojira is a firm supporter of Sea Shepherd, a marine wildlife conservation organization that campaigns for the preservation of wildlife in the world’s oceans. Gojira often denounce the destruction of the planet and especially the oceans in their many songs
Album The Way of All Flesh. The Way of All Flesh Lyrics. Anything that has a shape will crumble away, disappear We belong to the circle life of all creation We crawl and deny ourselves, refuse this evidence That we project our greatest fears on death and forget our power I want to live my life in close touch with the sacred Pacify the disturbances of the mind I face my own death. Your breath is now still, no warmth to your skin Do not be afraid, there's no way that you can stay here You are leaving this world All lights are fading away now Leave behind the loved ones and all you know Do not be afraid and let yourself go. More on Genius. About The Way of All Flesh. The Way of All Flesh is the title track and last song on the album. The track is 17 minutes long, though the song itself ends after 7 minutes.
My first Gojira album was From Mars to Sirius; not an album that impressed me very much until several years later when I was more familiar with that kind of music. It was The Way of All Flesh that really got me hooked on these guys. Proving to be one of the BEST thrash death album I’ve ever heard next to DevilDriver’s Beast (which doesn’t even compare), The Way of All Flesh should be an essential for all metalheads (old and new) worldwide. Being one of the most unique albums in metal history, The Way of All Flesh gets my score of 19/20. This album is ESSENTIAL for EVERYONE to have into their collection; I actually think that this record isn’t any more essential than Reign in Blood and Ride the Lightning. So listen to this and get it if you haven’t already.
StargazerIV Absolutely insane crushing and swerving grooves.

Luckily, by the time it finally emerged in late 2008, Gojira's fourth full-length successfully met most all of the understandably heightened expectations head on, opening strong with a pair of typically syncopated, groove-driven numbers in "Oroborus" and the "Toxic Garbage Island," then repeatedly upping the compositional ante with a string of imaginative progressive headbangers (.
