THE PROCESS OF A NEW GOROD ALBUM
The Transcendence EP Gorod released earlier this year is really fucking good, you guys. I haven’t seen a ton of praise for it either here or elsewhere on the Interhole, which is probably because it contains only one completely new track (along with some reimagined songs from the band’s catalogue). But that one track, from which the EP takes its name, is an absolute doozy! It highlights everything that put Gorod firmly atop the crowded tech-death pack, right up there along with Obscura as masters of both technicality and songcraft.
All this a somewhat roundabout way of saying I was incredibly stoked this morning to see a press release directly from the band announcing that they’ve Gojira aren’t the only French metal band working on new music; Gorod began recording their new album TODAY with producer “Elmobo” and guitarist Mat Pascal. It’ll be the first full-length since 2009’s Process of a New Decline, which ranked among my year-end favorites. Get excitebike. Get very, very excitebike.
