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!!"

A "demo montage" of some of the new GORGUTS material is available for streaming using the audio player below.

GORGUTS' current lineup is as follows:

* Luc Lemay (NEGATIVA) - Vocals, Guitar
* Kevin Hufnagel (DYSRHYTHMIA, WHILE HEAVEN WEPT, BYLA, EUCLID STREET, THE FIFTH SEASON, GREY DIVISION BLUE) - Guitar
* Colin Marston (DYSRHYTHMIA, BEHOLD... THE ARCTOPUS, BYLA, KRALLICE, INDRICOTHERE) - Bass
* John Longstreth (DIM MAK, ORIGIN, THE RED CHORD, SKINLESS, POSSESSION, ANGELCORPSE) - Drums

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Some of you really are wankers. Arm chair conservatives (read: people who can't handle changes in perspective). You contribute nothing to the world but negativity. You're the worst kind of no-sayers. You mask personal, vindictive opinions in 'objecitivity' like Nietzshe's 'slaves'.

'Some skillful parts'. Fuck me.

That was enjoyable. I'm surprised at cohesive the riffs were, considering the band personnel.

Holy shit, that's fucking awful.  And that's coming from someone who adores "Obscura"!

Someone needs to tell Luc to stop trying to be a more-avant-garde-than-thou jazz-jam faggot, and get back to metal.

Team,

The logical fallacy of false dilemma (also called false dichotomy, the either-or fallacy) involves a situation in which only two alternatives are considered, when in fact there are other options.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_dilemma

Here's an example:

Quote
Person 1: We need to fix the fucking wall.

Person 2: Let's use cheese.

Person 1: I don't think that will work.

Person 2: Fine, use semen instead! That'll never work either.

If Gorguts' new album blows, then there are other options including making a non-shitty album in the new style. It's not "do it the old way" or "love the new stuff" with no middle area.

This also applies to another comment on this page, but I'll trust you sharp-eyed shit-slingers to spot it.

From what I heard, still sounds like the same Gorguts to me. Doesn't really matter cause I think they're mediocre anyway.

The new song sounded OK to me; needs development.

Here's the problem: Gorguts think the reason people like them is the freaky stuff they do on the guitars, like the goofy harmonic riffs and wiggling out of time solos, but the real reason people like them is that the composition behind Obscura et al is a fun maze. It's unexpected, yet the melodies come together and make it beautiful. It's the art, not the adornment.

With Negative, the artists formerly known as Gorguts went deeply into the trivial and in parallel, decided to be dishonest and pander to the nu-metalcore demographic.

(http://image3.examiner.com/images/blog/replicate/EXID10472/images/heavy_metal_greeting_card.jpg)

If Gorguts is going to come back, it's going to be by returning the focus to the composition and making it say something significant. It doesn't really matter what style they do it in, although old school death metal offers more room for that than the distraction-enhanced metalcore.

Obscura is a fantastic album.  It just requires repeated listens to appreciate, moreso than most albums.

I got the impression that Negativa wasn't Luc Lemay behind the wheel.  But you're right about the dishonest part -- the fact that they have a female vocalist is pretty much a death spell to credibility; maybe she'll have some truly throat-crushing vocals, but I won't put my money behind it.

I want to listen to these clips, but at the same time, I don't want to risk have a sudden anal evacuation over my beloved gorguts falling from grace, so I'll just wait and see.

The first few samples (of the same song) leaked a couple of years ago weren't bad. However, they've since released 2 songs that truly do sound like KoRn rehashed. I imagine this is a combination of Longstreth's presence and Lemay's foray through Negativa.

Hi everybody !

Luc here,

Just a few words to let you know where we are with the songwriting of the new album. We got together at the end of January to finish up the last songs to complete the album. Colin and Kevin have contributed to the album with a song each. Amazingly well composed their songs suits the Gorguts aesthetic wonderfully.

The album will have a total of 9 songs including one instrumental piece for string orchestra composed by me. The album is going to be over one hour long. It still very brutal but darkly, ambient and progressive as well. The album main concept is going to be a musical journey that will talk about the wonders of Tibet as well as the dramatic fate they’ve been going through for over 50 years now.

I’m hard at work on the lyrics as I’m writing this update. For this album, I wanted to have all the music finished first before writing any lyrics. This way, having all the musical canvas done I can now concentrate on the story telling aspect. When everything will be ready we’re going to record the album along with my longtime friend and producer Pierre Remillard at his Wild Studio in Quebec.

Since we’re still discussing with a label, we can’t tell you a street date yet for the release of the album but we’re shooting for this Summer. In the meantime, you can enjoy for the first time this new song (at our MySpace) taken from one of our pre-production session which was recorded by Colin at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves Studio in Queens NY.

The wait is almost over for us to unleash this new beast.

All the best
Luc

No sense of adventure or mystery in this songs structure. This is the most routine material I have ever heard from Gorguts.

Oh yeah! I love this. I love the new Dillinger, I like my Stone Sour as well. I’m not stuck saying it’s got to be extreme and weird. Like Stone Sour, I LOVE Corey Taylor’s voice. I think he’s an amazing singer. I love Opeth, Katatonia, I love those bands. Steven Wilson’s music –
