This is already a great year for technical death metal. Obscura, Centaurus-A, Suffocation... Nevertheless, it seems like France's Gorod simply outplays all of these bands and Process Of A New Decline so far sets the high water mark for this little sub-genre in the year 2009.

Don't get me wrong, Process Of A New Decline still features many of the pitfalls associated with technical metal - guitar solos are often gratuitous and complex structures seem to exist for no other reason than to show off how many hours the instrumentalists have spent playing with their own instruments instead of getting laid. Case in point - "Watershed" certainly reminds me of Opeth - not in musical style, but in how technical and progressive passages are expertly used to make a conceptual song that goes precisely nowhere. Yes, it all sounds impressive but it is gratuitous and is like a kind of musical workout, that like all music we hear while working out - leaves our memory as soon as it is over.

Because this was is closer to generic tech-death wankery than interesting, considered creative music like their previous two. This kind of album can be found under every rock whereas Leading Visions and Neurotripsick are far more unique.

Exactly, nailed it

  Honestly...this remains my favourite Gorod album. Check out the concept of the album and listen to some of the technical parts...it is stunning to the very last second. Almighty's Murderer has got to be one of my favourite technical death metal songs. No matter how underrated this album may be perceived, you really need to own the album and look at the underlying story stated in the beginning of the booklet to really appreciate what it is Gorod have offered.
