Gorguts’ “Le toit du monde” Will Take You to The Roof of the World
If you’ve already listened to my epic two-part interview (part one, part two) with Gorguts mastermind Luc Lemay, than you know that the band’s new album, Colored Sands, can be divided into two sections, the first of which revolves around the process by which a new Dali Lama is selected. And you will therefore not be shocked to know that the album’s appropriately dizzying, edema-(not Adema)-inducing first song is called “Le toit du monde,” which is French for “The Roof of the World,” which is what people call the part of Asia which includes the Himalayas and Tibet. The song, then, is something of an overture, a setting of the scene, if you will. In typical Gorguts fashion, it rules.
