GORGUTS's Next Album Will Consist Of A Single Song

Canadian technical death metallers GORGUTS are putting the finishing touches on the songwriting process for the follow-up to 2013's "Colored Sands", tentatively due in early 2016. Speaking to Metal Injection at this month's Heavy Montreal festival in Montreal, Quebec, GORGUTS guitarist/vocalist Luc Lemay stated about the upcoming CD (see video below): "[Bassist] Colin [Marston] and [guitarist] Kevin [Hufnagel], when they come over [to Quebec to rehearse] for gigs, we like to spend more days working on [new] material. But the new record, beside lyrics, everything is written. The music is finished — let's say, 98 percent [is done]. We're into the minor-detail phase, which we stop every two seconds [and go], 'Oh, minor detail. What about this and this and this?'"

He continued: "The new record, it's gonna be a single track… one long song. I've been wanting to do that for a long, long, long time. After hearing PORCUPINE TREE's 'The Incident', MESHUGGAH's 'I', the DEATHSPELL OMEGA EPs, I said, 'I really wanna get into this compositional exercise,' you know — to get one big movement. And I think it's pretty cool. I can't wait to share it with the crowd, and that's gonna be a lot of fun to play live."

GORGUTS last year 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.

GORGUTS in 2014 joined forces with CARCASS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and NOISEM for Decibel magazine's third cross-country domination.
