GORGUTS: Drum-Cam Footage From Vienna

Drummers From Hell has uploaded drum-cam footage of Patrice Hamelin of Canadian technical death metallers GORGUTS performing the song "An Ocean Of Wisdom" when the band played in Vienna, Austria at the Escape Metalcorner on April 30. Check out the clip below.

GORGUTS recently parted ways with drummer John Longstreth and replaced him with Patrice Hamelin.

The band's fifth album, "Colored Sands", was released on August 30, 2013 in Europe and September 3, 2013 in North America via Season Of Mist. The CD was made available as a digipak CD limited to the first pressing, regular black LP, transparent clear LP and red/yellow colored LP.

GORGUTS guitarist/vocalist Luc Lemay previously told Zero Tolerance magazine about "Colored Sands": "It's a whole concept album, so I'd been reading books for a year a year and a half for the lyrics to know what I'm going to talk about.

"The lyrics process is very hard for me. First, I'm French, and then I need to educate myself on the topic I'm going to talk about. I'm not going to educate myself on the Chinese invasion of Tibet with a Wikipedia thing.

"I bought piles of books. I feel the same way I did at the conservatory when I was writing classical pieces. It takes months and months, the pieces you just can't get it out of your system. You need to become a sponge, you need to get soaked with the topic.

"In the first place, I wanted to write the whole album about the rituals of mandalas made with sand. One day, my girlfriend's little daughter colored in a coloring book a mandala for me and I wondered what a mandala was, I liked the word. I searched on the Internet and found out this is a Tibetan thing and then it clicked, this is gonna be it, but I didn't have any clue, I wasn't very educated on the Tibetan culture. This mandala thing gets so complex, you could study it for 25-30 years before you know exactly what you're talking about, so I said, 'Okay, I'll take it from a different angle.' It's not a National Geographic documentary either. It's very poetic and very epic. This is my vision. I have no pretension about telling 'truth'; it's how I feel about these people."

GORGUTS recently joined forces with CARCASS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and NOISEM for Decibel magazine's third cross-country domination.
