GOROD ARE “CARVED IN THE WIND.” I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS.
Update, 3/13, 1:38 pm: Forgot to mention that the solo during the “jazzy” section is by Christian Muenzner from Obscura. Bonus!
I was feeling pretty down on tech metal last year, when this trend of placing value on deedily-doo over songwriting seemed to hit an all-time high. But it’s only March, and 2012 is already looking to redeem the genre: Spawn of Possession’s Incurso (which we’re currently streaming here) is great, Psycroptic’s The Inherited Repression is great, and all signs point to Gorod’s A Perfect Absolution turning out to be great, too.
The latest evidence that Gorod’s newest offering won’t disappoint comes in the form of “Carved in the Wind,” a new song which originally debuted on the world’s shittiest little audio player here, but can now be streamed via the below YouTube clip. At this point, I feel like I shouldn’t even have to tell you what sets Gorod apart from the pack (cough, songwriting, cough, cough), so just crank your speakers and enjoy:
A Perfect Absolution will be released in Europe this month via Listenable; us ‘Mericans get it May 8 via Unique Leader.
