GOROD INCH EVER CLOSER TO TRANSCENDENCE
Gorod’s self-released Transcendence EP is out now; that is, only if you’re one of the lucky folks who attended their May 23rd show in Paris, the first and only place it was available. If you’re a regular sucker like the rest of us you’ll have to wait until the band gets it up on iTunes and other digital retailers, which they promise will happen “later on this year.”
But the band has just released a video trailer containing clips of every song on the EP matched with descriptions of what those songs all represent. Here’s the guide to the EP’s tracks that the band released a few weeks back, including some re-recorded older songs, a Cynic cover,and a brand new song:
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…
I don’t own Gorod’s older albums, so even the re-imagined classics are new to me, and it goes without saying that I’m super-stoked for the 15-minute new song and the Cynic cover. Can’t wait to get my grubby little hands on this sucker.
