Prior to the stream of the new record, GORGUTS released a lyric video for the track Forgotten Arrows.

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.

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.

GORGUTS Tour dates and ticket links:

9/5 Springfield, VA @ Empire (With INTER ARMA)

6. I Draw My Strength From You

Masterminded by Michael Bjella, GOG has toiled in the underground noise community for a decade, releasing records that have been widely respected and regarded as essential in experimental/noise/soundscape circles.

On the band, Michael Bjella states:

“I started GOG to explore the darker sides of thought and life. I want to create things without restriction and form that can transport people and possibly make them confront their own fears. Things that are truly dark but have contrast. To borrow a line from one of my favorite artists, in case there might be harmony, then it is the harmony of accident, of chaos. I’m not trying to make harmony… ”
