04:50 - The Maratha Also, black powerfully blending with genres of death, drone, psychedelic, doom, sludge and so on. More or less, this past 2 years there has been a trend of experimentation in metal altogether.
04:44 - The Maratha The problem is that Sludge creepingly blends into heavy, doom, black and death. Look at Roadburn for instance.
03:24 - Marcel Hubregtse SLudge is actually already dead since most bands in that genre are copying each other . Savannah SLudge is doing it and so are the others. If you hear mrore than 6 new sludge bands each months you will notice it.
02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong
02:17 - Apothecary I still think sludge is far from "the next big trend" lol, that's grossly over-exaggerating its appeal to the average metalhead. More people are into thrash, death, and symphonic type shit before sludge, at least in my area
02:14 - Karlabos yeah, sludge seems to be quite the thing nowadays. still beats the power metal trend from when i was a kid tho
After delivering A Maze Of Recycled Creeds last year, tech death metallers Gorod now release the first video for their latest record. You can explore your "Inner Alchemy" below by watching the video shot and edited by Gautier Roscoet. Also, Gorod will kick off a Canadian tour later this month. Set to commence on March 24th and run through April 16th, the band will be joined by Bookakee as well as Beyond Creation on select dates.
Gorod have finally given us more new material to enjoy. The French technical death metal unit has a new musical offering prepared to be released called A Maze Of Recycled Creeds, due out on October 16th via Unique Leader Records in North America and on Listenable Records in Europe.

As of today, you can start discovering the forthcoming opus, A Maze Of Recycled Creeds. The album cover and song titles have already been released.

The new Gorod album is taking shape. The French technical death metallers are currently recording the follow-up to A Perfect Absolution and the drum parts and rhythm guitars are already done. The recordings are happening at Mathieu "Mat" Pascal's new studio and the band might share a taste of the new songs soon. What do you expect from the new album?

French technical death metal virtuosi Gorod have inked a deal with Listenable Records. Their new album "Process Of A New Decline" sets a landmark in the bands career and will turn many heads in the metal community, rest assured!
With this new record, Gorod have cleverly spiced their diamond-cutting technicality with supercharged pinball machine melodies and fluttering sting ray guitar solos against a backdrop of grooves and bonkers bass playing, not to mention tighter, radioactive songwriting sure to burrow its way into permanent memory. Considering how slippery and complicated Gorod sounds on paper, it's immediately refreshing to be reminded that death metal can be catchy, brainy, and fun all at the same time "Process Of A New Decline" is sure to be one of the best technical death metal albums you've heard in quite some time!
