Gorod 1

Official press release:

Recently crowned, “the undisputed kings of melodic tech death,” by MetalSucks, long-active French brutalists, Gorod, will release their hotly-anticipated new full-length this Fall in North America via Unique Leader Records. Now three-years in the waiting, the near-fifty-minute-long A Maze Of Recycled Creeds spits forth eleven slithering tracks of arthritis-inducing riffs, spiraling, harmony-rich fret decompositions, surgically-precise time shifts, blasts, brawn and an incessant barrage of malicious vocal onslaughts. Fans of Necrophagist, Obscura, Meshuggah, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and Decrepit Birth, bring a crash helmet.

In advance of its October 16th release, today Decibel Magazine is pleased to offer up third track, “Celestial Nature”, for public intoxication. Initially released as a play-through video earlier this year, MetalSucks notes, “The song has everything you want and expect from Gorod – dazzling musicianship and unstoppable melodies all rolled into one, neither of which compromise one another.”

Comments the band of the latest opus:

“The lyrical concept of this album is based on the unfathomable fantasies created by various secret societies and mystical orders. A Maze Of Recycled Creeds speaks of the fraternity of the Rose-Croix, specifically via the works of Sâr Merodack Joséphin Péladan (1858 – 1918), a peculiar ‘guru’ claiming to have divine origins from Assyria… For the track ‘Celestial Nature’, we touch on the enlisting of neophytes by using astrology. In a preamble to the initiation rites, the Rosicrucian disciple must identify himself with one major star and two minor stars the better to understand himself as an individual. This teaching matches with the Rosicrucian recurring discourse pattern about knowing oneself.”
