GORGUTS Premier Another New Track

Critically-acclaimed death metal pioneers GORGUTS are streaming a new track off their forthcoming record, Colored Sands. Le toit du monde, the album’s opening track is streaming now at Lambgoat.com.

12 years in the making, the long-awaited new GORGUTS (Luc Lemay- Guitar and Vocals, Kevin Hufnagel (DYSRYTHMIA) – Guitar, Colin Martson (DYSRYTHMIA, BEHOLD THE ARCTOPUS, KRALLICE) – Bass, and John Longstreth (ORIGIN, DIM MAK) – Drums) album, ‘Colored Sands’ is slated for release on September 3 in North America (August 30 rest of World).

Colored Sands will be available as a CD Digipack and limited edition LP at the Season of Mist E-Shop. 

Prior to the stream of Le Toit du monde, GORGUTS released a lyric video for the track Forgotten Arrows, and premiered the tracks An Ocean of Wisdom and Colored Sands.

GORGUTS recently announced a string of headlining shows leading to and from this year’s Hopscotch Festival. The trek, which begins on September 5 in Springfield VA, will travel through the festival before ending on September 8 in Worcester, MA. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

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  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 word, 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 to this day.
