They revealed the list that Gojira frontman Joe Duplantier submitted and if there is one thing to be said about Joe is that he loves Metallica, Death and Morbid Angel:

  • Death – Human (1991)
  • Death – Symbolic (1995)
  • Machine Head – Burn My Eyes (1994)
  • Mastodon – Emperor of Sand (2017)
  • Metallica – Master of Puppets (1986)
  • Metallica – Ride the Lightning (1984)
  • Morbid Angel – Covenant (1993)
  • Morbid Angel – Domination (1995)
  • Rage Against the Machine – Rage Against the Machine (1992)
  • Sepultura – Chaos A.D. (1993)

Interestingly, Joe says Morbid's Domination was "the closest to our sound when we started as a band," and he noted that Gojira's "first gig in '96 was 70 percent Sepultura covers." I guess that explains why Joe was gung-ho to play bass on the first Cavalera Conspiracy record.
