GOROD CAN’T GET A RECORD DEAL??! WILL SELF-RELEASE NEW EP
Remember that EP that Gorod announced they were working on over 16 months ago that was supposed to include a 14-minute long epic and a Cynic cover? Yeah, I’d forgotten too. But according to an email from Gorod guitarist Mathieu Pascal that the MS Mansion Monkeys just printed out, couriered over to the Vince Division and are jumping up and down “ahhh ahhhh ahhhhh!”-ing whilst waving it in my face, Gorod are finally releasing that EP, called Transcendence… on their own.
What is wrong with the world that Gorod can’t get a record deal? Do previous labels Willowtip and Listenable not realize that this band’s popularity has exploded since their last release, 2009’s mind-melting Process of a New Decline? Whatevs… we get new Gorod music, so who gives an eff? Here’s Pascal:
“Transcendence” will only be available at the band shows and on the forthcoming Gorod online shop (june 2011)… the EP will hit iTunes later on this year…
Gorod ultimate fans will be pleased to know that the EP will be available from may 23 at the Paris show (Glazart) on this European Invasion Tour !!
This new sound, that shows 45′ of Gorod’s universe [I think this means “45 minutes.” -Ed.] and new way of musical approach, marks the end of the SciFi story started with “Neurotripsicks” and that led “Leading Vision” and “Process Of A New Decline”…. End of an era…
After the jump, check the tracklisting (including the Cynic cover):
Track# 1: Earth Pus – (“Neurotripsicks” / 2004) – New version, re recorded, spring 2010.
Track# 2: Blackout: Renewed Souls – Acoustic version of Blackout (“Leading Vision” / 2006), re-written for classical guitars and percussions.
Track# 3: Textures – CYNIC cover ! – Recorded in 2008 with longtime friend, Tiko (Jenx), on drums.
Track# 4: Earth Pus: Salvation – Acoustic version of Earth Pus (“Neurotripsicks” / 2004), Re shapped with orchestral elements.
Track# 5: Transcendence – A brand new 15′ piece ! Progressive, épic, outstanding ! …. while Ross Dolan(IMMOLATION) lends a hand to Guillaume on vocals, GOROD new singer, Julien “Nutz”, do his first appearance … A 15′ song, with different influences, new and old, mixed for a travel in Gorod’s universe…
So at the end of the day we get only one brand new track, the Cynic cover, and three “reimagined” versions of old songs. Still, color me excited.
