Last Monday night Gorguts played in London and Zero Tolerance caught up with the mastermind behind the avant-death metallers Luc Lemay to find out what the deal with the reunited band’s new album is. The most important info is… the album’s not recorded yet. All the music is written with some lyrics left to go and the band hope to start recording later in the year. Regarding release date – “I would hope by the end of the year or early 2013 to deliver,” says Luc so perhaps hopes of a 2012 release have not been completely dashed, but from this vantage point it seems a little unlikely.
Lemay also explained the woe the band has been having labels and revealed that the as yet untitled album will be a concept record focused on Tibetan culture, specifically the Chinese invasion. There will be eight tracks in total on the album. Read the rest of the interview HERE.
Gorguts reformed in 2008 with a new line-up helmed by Lemay, including Colin Marston (Dysrhythmia, Krallice) and Kevin Hufnagel (Dysrhythmia, Vaura). The band’s 1998 album Obscura is a death metal classic and a hallmark of DM experimentalism that’s rightfully lauded endlessly.
