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.

Updated GORGUTS news and tour information will be made available through the Season of Mist website, and the GORGUTS website, Reverbnation, Twitter, and Facebook pages.

LESBIAN‘s third full length offering and Translation Loss debut Forestelevison is a single song, 44+ minute all-encompassing force of nature! Never has an album sifted through the deepest trenches of prog-influenced epic-doom and blackened metal to produce such an awe-inspiring aural assault to the senses. Recorded at Avast! Studios with long time producing collaborator Randall Dunn (Wolves in the Throne Room, Earth, Boris) and featuring gorgeous artwork by Arik Roper, Forestelevison will see a June 25 release on CD (Digipack), Digital and 2xLP. The 2xLP version will come housed in deluxe gatefold packaging and include an exclusive Vinyl-only extended outro-bonus track! The album is available for pre-order HERE.

Consisting of guitarists Arran McInnis and Daniel La Rochelle, bassist/vocalist Dorando Hodous and drummer Benjamin Thomas-Kennedy, LESBIAN has grown accustomed to composing lengthy eclectic journeys that take the listener through myriad genres ranging anywhere from doom to prog to psyche to 70s rock to black metal to grunge and beyond. Forestelevison continues LESBIAN’S music genre-defying journey from their prior full-length on Holy Mountain Records called Power Hor, a split 10″ with Ocean on Roadburn Records, a self-released two song tour EP, and a second full-length on Important Records called Stratospheria Cubensis.
