Guest review by

It is my honor to review this album, my friends. Leading Vision is a record to align with as far as technical death metal is concerned and is the best example of Gorod's relaxed approach to songwriting.

The naturally flowing melodies are the main strength of this album. There is nothing forced about Leading Vision unlike its successor, which often suffers from too many notes and too little structure. On this record there are many mid-paced songs, which is one of the main reasons why the album overall is so enjoyable: the musicians just seem to be jamming and having fun themselves no matter how complex things sometimes get. Here the French masters craftily combine brutal riffage and blast beat drumming with progressive structures and melodic leads and solos, which, with their beauty, can be compared to those of Death. With Gorod, this is actually an entirely separate topic because those countless leads and solos are something you will never hear anywhere else. I like to refer to them as "avantgarde" because of their uniqueness and jazzy feel ‒ I have always thought that the band members being French has something to do with that.

  It's impossible to try and describe an album like Leading Vision without trying to draw parallels to other bands and albums. Gorod give bands like Spawn of Possession, Psycroptic, Gorguts and whoever else you can think of, a run for their money in terms of pure brutal technicality. At the same time however, they have a very distinct Atheist influence, and never let the technical aspects get in the way of writing damn good songs that flow well, riff by riff (and good lord, are there a lot of good riffs here.)
One of the best Tech Death albums out there. Highly recommended.
