Gorguts to release new album in August

Posted by AP on 06/06/13

Canadian technical/brutal death metal crew Gorguts will release a new album titled "Colored Sands" through Season Of Mist on the 30th of August. The label has released the following statement regarding the effort:

Few extreme bands have the pedigree of GORGUTS. From their early days as part of death metal's first wave (including their legendary Roadrunner releases 'Considered Dead' and 'Erosion of Sanity'), through their transformation into one of the most progressive and influential bands in extreme metal, GORGUTS has been impervious to trends, and a vehicle to expand and redefine the language of extreme metal.

The band's 1998 album 'Obscura' sent a shockwave through the death metal world, and remains one of the genre's most influential records to this day. Taking inspiration from classical composers, Lemay's use of atonal noise and sounds as part of his compositions helped reinvent extreme metal guitar playing. Lemay's techniques on 'Obscura' continue to be a major influence for young metal players.

After a hiatus, Lemay reformed GORGUTS in 2008. GORGUTS returned to the live circuit for the first time in over 10 years as main support for the legendary 'Death To All' tour in 2012, and followed it up with a handful of European festival dates, including MetalCamp, Brutal Assault Festival, Rock Im Betwonwerk, Metal Mean Festival, and more.

GORGUTS is: Luc Lemay- Guitar and Vocals, Kevin Hufnagel (DYSRYTHMIA) -Guitar, Colin Martsom (DYSRYTHMIA, BEHOLD THE ARCTOPUS, KRALLICE) - Bass, and John Longstreth (ORIGIN, DIM MAK) – Drums
