GORGUTS: New Song Samples Available - Mar. 21, 2010


Guitarist/vocalist Luc Lemay of the reactivated Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada-based technical death metal band GORGUTS has released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:

"It's been almost a year since I wrote the last update for the upcoming GORGUTS record.

"First, I want to thank everyone that took the time to write us after I posted the rehearsal video with John [Longstreth, drums; DIM MAK, ORIGIN, THE RED CHORD, SKINLESS, POSSESSION, ANGELCORPSE] and I… I can't thank you enough for all the support and enthusiasm towards the band.

"Since then we've been very busy and productive working on the new record!! We got two-thirds of the music written and recorded into two pre-productions.

"I couldn't be happier with the result of this collaboration along with three of the most talented musicians in the metal scene. John, Colin [Marston, bass; DYSRHYTHMIA, BEHOLD... THE ARCTOPUS, BYLA, KRALLICE, INDRICOTHERE] and Kevin [Hufnagel, guitar; DYSRHYTHMIA, WHILE HEAVEN WEPT, BYLA, EUCLID STREET, THE FIFTH SEASON, GREY DIVISION BLUE] have been fantastic and amazingly creative with their instruments for the new compositions.

"Don't expect this record to sound like a previous GORGUTS album.

"We've also been very busy getting ready with the setlist for the upcoming show for Maryland Deathfest. It's so cool re-visit the first four album material and we'll be performing live, for the first time, some of the songs for our upcoming album!!!!

"So, here's a preview of the atmosphere you can expect on the album which we'll be recording later this year!

"Thanks again to all our fans!!

"See you on stage!!"

Back in November 2006, Metal Mind Productions reissued the classic GORGUTS albums "Considered Dead" and "Erosion of Sanity". Both CDs came in new digipack editions on golden discs, digitally remastered using 24-bit technology, and were limited to a hand-numbered 2,000 copies. Each title included two demo tracks as a bonus.

GORGUTS' last studio album, "From Wisdom to Hate", was released in 2001.

Sounds like we're getting Negativa pt. 2

    

I never thought I'd see the day Gorguts made a The Unspoken King, but at least The Unspoken King was good Job for a Cowboy-inspired heavy metal.

This is just dross.

While I didn't hear anything to get excited about, they are just samples.  I'm willing to wait and see how the whole thing is going to come together.

I fucking hate Colin Marston. They need to bring back Steve Cloutier. Amazing bass player.

After listening to this demo: Goodbye good Gorguts.

Its so sad to see this happen. R.I.P Gorguts

This sounds like Pink Frothy Aids, to me.  I'm no expert on this genre, though, so I'll wait for the full release.

Sorry, but I gotta ask. What is this Pink Frothy AIDS I keep hearing about?

More on topic: The samples didn't really do anything for me, but, as has been said, they are just samples. Obviously everyone is going to wait for the full thing before judging it. But I suppose, having heard these, my expectations have dropped a notch or two if anything.

Just sounds like a lot of pointless, masturbatory noodling to me. When I listen to Gorguts, it is almost invariably the first two albums, with a heavy lean toward "Considered..." at that. Which probably explains why I'm not really excited about these self-indulgent finger gymnastics.

It's a wordfilter for O-peth

I am the same. I can't help but consider Obscura a precursor to the deathcore movement. It contains some skillful parts but I cannot appreciate the album.

I can't help but consider Obscura a precursor to the deathcore movement.

Please, tell me the similarities between Obscura and something like Job for a Cowboy... I don't know many deathcore bands, this name just occurred to me. You can choose another one to compare if you like.

I haven't heard that band or much deathcore. I have seen a band live and know that it is affectatious and forced, not detatched like death metal is.

Obscura is a great masterpiece. It is not deathcore

10% has something going for it. the remaining is an incoherent mess.
