NEW GOROD ALBUM THIS MARCH?
[UPDATE, 5:41pm EST: The new Gorod album will be called A Perfect Absolution. Check out the sick cover art at No Clean Singing.]
I hereby posit that Psycroptic, Spawn of Possesion, Obscura and Gorod are the four best tech-death bands in the world — THE BIG FOUR of tech-death — fight me on that claim if you dare. This year is shaping up to be an incredible year for top-notch tech-death, as three of those bands are poised to release new records in the first half of 2012. Psycroptic and Spawn of Possession have new albums coming out on February 7th and March 13th, respectively, and it appears if the wily Frenchmen in Gorod will have an album out very soon too. Get excitebike!
So, Gorod: they’ve re-signed with Listenable Records and they’re already recording a new album which will supposedly come out in March (though I won’t be surprised if that date is pushed back). They’ve released two studio updates so far, and unlike the videos some bands post consisting of nothing but dudes whacking about, these are both loaded with samples of new music! Watch and listen:
Gorod’s last release, the Transcendence EP, came out this past fall and consisted of one epic 15-minute new song plus a Cynic cover and a few re-worked versions of the band’s older songs. Their new album will be the first since 2009’s Process of a New Decline.
European readers can catch Gorod on tour this spring with the too-good-to-be-true lineup of Obscura, Spawn of Possession and Exivious.
